“I'm seeing SUCH a change in Mom.  She's doing better than she has in a year or more.  I think it's a combination of the nice surroundings, the friendly people (residents & staff alike), and the fact that I know she's getting her required meds on schedule.” 

––Kim Peters

“With this letter I want to express my profound gratitude to you for the excellent care you gave my mother, Dorothy Murray.  Your compassion, competency and patience were outstanding.  Mother experienced your gentle care and felt so safe with you.”
