Your loving kindess to my mom is so appreciated. Your kind and fun stories about her are cherished! I have been watching the compassionate care of all patients for 5 ½ years. It is truly a gift of God. You are a very personal staff and for that we are grateful.

Southern Hills Specialty Care

I was very impressed with the quality of the facility and especially the kind and caring staff that I met there. It was a pleasant experience to see your Mom at that fine, well-equipped, immaculately clean, modern facility. Your Mom looked better than I can remember seeing her in the past several years. A huge plus!

Thank you to everyone for your efforts in making our parents welcome. This was a first and quite traumatic, and your TLC made this experience so much more comfortable. It’s peace of mind to know you have their best interests at heart.

Corning Specialty Care

We are so fortunate to have had our father recover from an injury and be rehabilitated at NorthCrest Care Facility. The patience and thoughtfulness that all the staff from the front offices to the building maintenance workers was 1st class and very much appreciated.

NorthCrest Specialty Care

I spent 3 weeks at NorthCrest in Jan 2018 recovering from major surgery. The following are my impressions of the facility. Physical building-the building was kept very clean, safe, and welcoming. The housekeeping staff seemed to be very thorough. The rooms are not large but were adequate for my needs. Food-the food was better than I expected in a nursing home environment. Staff-I cannot say enough nice things about the staff. Both nurses and CNA’s were excellent caretakers. Since returning home I have sung your praises everywhere!

I chose Dubuque Specialty Care because it was close to my house and I knew another person who lived there. They were happy with the care they were given. The staff here treat me excellent. I was so sick when I came, my medications had me so confused that I couldn’t walk. I was falling down all the time. Today, I enjoy going to bingo, music, manicures and meeting with the residents. I enjoy the food here, especially the roast beef with onions and cheese, the desserts, fresh fruit and the coffee. The atmosphere energizes me.
