What Residents & Families Are Saying

My Mom often said, "I love the food here, especially since I don't have to prepare it." The dietary department did a fine job, trying to keep weight on her with extra snacks of cheese and crackers. Shrimp and special requests on her birthday were great. The dining room staff is very patient, even when we were the last ones to leave.

Diane C. - Skilled Nursing

We really appreciated the service provided by Kingsway Home Care. You explained everything clearly and made sure that my husband's needs were met. The home health aides were competent and caring, and they were not intrusive in any way. I like them, and it was a comfort having them here. The aides made my husband's final days easier, and they certainly made things easier for me, as well.
