"Our family appreciated the extreme care my husband received. He was treated with kindness, care, concern, and close attention to the specific needs he had. Our daughter and son-in-law appreciated the care and concern given to me (patient's wife), as well as to our entire family. The staff's sympathy and concern for all of us was more than we hoped for in this incredibly difficult time in our lives."
