What Residents & Families Are Saying

Our mother was gravely ill and her prognosis was dire. The love and quality of care she received during the last several weeks of her life from the entire leadership and staff was outstanding. They serve as our Gold Standard of Care and Compassion for the entire health care system. You should be proud to have them in your organization. We truly believe our mother was blessed to be with them during her last days.

The family of Rosemarie C. - Skilled Nursing

It's been almost six months that my parents have resided in the Parkland Garden Apartments. We believe they've adjusted well to this new stage of their lives, thanks to Vicki, the dining and cleaning staff, Jim and Darlene. They all do a great job! Also, right from the beginning we appreciated your help and guidance for this transition. It gives us peace of mind to know my folks are safe, well fed and have new acquaintances nearby. Thanks to all.
