Chariton Specialty Care

Our family would like to express our gratitude for the care you gave Mother as a resident for almost two years. We found all staff to be most professional and very caring. Her room was spotless and staff was always willing to address concerns. We feel Southern Hills is a shining example of caring for those who are unable to care for themselves.

The building was kept very clean, safe and welcoming. The food was better than I had expected. The staff I cannot say enough nice things about. Both nurses and CNAs were excellent caretakers.
