Thank you for the croton. I love plants! But I think you know that. Thank you for taking such good care of Mom. You kept her healthy and happy for a long time and for that I am eternally grateful. Hugs to all of you. You are all amazing at what you do.

I want to thank each and every one of you. I could not have gotten as far as I am now, after my stroke, if it would not have been for all of you! Life is a journey and we all have our troubles and obstacles to overcome. You have made the road easier for me!

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.

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.

My mother was in the memory unit. The staff took such good care of her. She felt loved by all the staff. Everyone always greets you with a warm smile and hello. I knew my mom's care was great and they always would take time to listen to your concerns and address them right away. I highly recommend Heritage for the care they give. I knew I could leave and felt comfortable in knowing my mom was in a good place.

We were very happy with the care Dubuque Specialty Care gave to our son, Josh, while he went through skilled nursing after being hospitalized. Their staff are very thoughtful and caring and we truly appreciate everything they did for our son during his rehabilitation. Thanks again :

Thank you for your dedication and the crae that you give to all. Thank for working so hard to keep everyone safe during this crazy epidemic. We can't thank you enough for all that you do for my mother. Many of you have known her for a long time and for some it has been over 10 years. Living so far away in Michigan has meant our visites are never often enough, and now it is unknown when we can come again. Please know that you are in our prayers, and we appreciation you all so much.

Fonda Specialty Care

Last fall I was in a bad car wreck that resulted in an external fixator on my leg and left me in a wheelchair. Ridgewood took me in and I’m very happy with the help and the treatment I have received. Everyone from the nursing department to housekeeping treated me very well. They got me strong enough to return home and I continued seeing them for outpatient therapy, now I am back to walking independently, only using a cane occasionally because I live in the boonies. I have no complaints at all about my stay at Ridgewood. Thank you.

Thank you so much for the help & guidance you all gave our family. You were so much help during a time that we were all stressed. You went beyond what strictly would be the job.
