Thank you (Greenfield) so much for the beautiful candle. Everything happened so fast. Had you spent time with Mom you would have enjoyed her sparkling personality. We applaud you for all that you do. We are so fortunate to have such compassion at our fingertips. Thanks again!

I am writing this letter to express my gratitude and to recognize Mechanicsville Specialty Care in Mechanicsville, IA, one of your Care Initiative care centers. My mother has been a resident there for over 9-1/2 years. She has Alzheimer's and is currently on hospice care. 
The staff is not only professional and skilled, they are caring, patient and compassionate. They give their smiles freely and can calm and reassure my mother in her confusion and anxiety. When I have visited her through the window (since COVID) I have seen my mother look up at a staff member with the look of a child seeking guidance and direction and I am convinced they are her family. The staff has changed in those 9-1/2 years but I have come to know many of them very well and they are part of my family too. 
Everyone ... are to be highly commended for their dedication in the past and heroic efforts during the COVID 19 Pandemic! I also recognize and praise the entire Care Initiative Hospice team. How reassuring it is that I can trust they are caring for and protecting my mother in such a loving way. Isn't that what anyone would want for their loved one?

Mom entered Sibley Specialty Care under the care of Care Initiatives Hospice. She was only there a week but we cannot express enough how wonderful the care was from both Sibley's staff and the Hospice staff. Our family so appreciated the gentleness and caring shown to our Mom.

Thank you for all your (Care Initiatives Hospice - Greenfield) help with our mom. She enjoyed everyone that came and helped take care of her and just ...talked to her. She was always smiling when Ashley came. So with everything that you guys helped with, even help(ed) Dad out, we send this donation in mom's name to help with whatever needed. Mom would (have) wanted us to do this. So again, thank you very much.
