Family Stories

My family and I are so thankful for the care that was given to both my Dad and Mom by April and her team at Lyon Specialty Care in Rock Rapids, IA. We are all on the journey of life and when it comes to the final stage of life it is great to have a small town nursing home staff give such great care to your loved ones when you can not be there all of the time.  They all do a fantastic job!  God Bless!

The staff worked so well together and seemed to really enjoy the patients and each other. Leslie and Paulette have created an effective and compassionate culture of caring. The staff always seemed to welcome Lori/family as part of the team, encouraging our input as they educated us.

I would like to thank each and everyone of you for the excellent care your provided for my wife. She was treated with care, respect and love. You all wer true professionals and she loved living at your facility. She told me often how kind everyone was to her. Too often when someone has a chronic illness, their dignity disappears bit by bit. That did not happen for my beautiful wife, because you all cared so much for her and the other residents. I can never thank you enough for all you did for her and for us.

My dad has been a resident at Pinnacle Specialty Care since the facility opened and has had many medical issues. He struggles with Dementia and neurological issues. He always enjoys his meals and the CNA and nurses have been very attentive to his medical needs and in helping find activities he enjoys. The music there he enjoys and tells me how much he loves living here.

Thank you just doesn't seem sufficient for all you guys did for Mom the last 3 1/2 years. Just want you to let you know we are eternally grateful for everything

I wish we would have started hospice sooner for my wife. She appreciated the care. There was one lady she really hit it off with and the staff were always there when we needed. The social worker has been attentive in following up with me. I was very pleased with Care Initiatives Hospice - Greenfield.

My mother had to go to Westwood Specialty Care (in Sioux City) because of a stroke. I am very impressed with the kind and professional staff at Westwood. Their speech therapy department is the best of the best. After only a few weeks, she is speaking coherent sentences. I am very happy with Westwood Specialty Care and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a safe and well run facility.

We cannot thank you enough for the great care you gave Dad. Everyone was so nice and we are so grateful that he was able to receive his therapy at your facility. Thank you for your compassiona, understanding and so much more. When we left him the first day, we knew he was definitely going to like it there which gave us peace of mind.
