Testimonials

"I was very happy with my therapy at The Caring Place. I would highly recommend it to anyone. I was very satisfied with the program." -Helen Mortimer, Rehab Graduate

"When you need help, The Caring Place is where to come. The workers are kind and treat you like a member of the family. I recommend the services at The Caring Place to anyone in need. My sister is being admitted today!" -Alice Croyle, President of The Caring Place Resident Council

"As a Physician, I see patients everyday faced with the prospect of placement in a Skilled Nursing Facility. Some for rehabilitation before going home, and others for probable long-term living. It wasn't until my own mother was in that same situation that I came to appreciate the dedicated professionals at The Caring Place. My mother moved in to The Caring Place Personal Care Center initially and did very well with the assistive services provided. She then required more extensive care on the Skilled wing. She received excellent therapy and now resides safely at The Caring Place Nursing Center. My hectic schedule means that I pop in and out at all hours, whenever I can, to visit mom. My sister and I are very pleased with the care mom receives. We are kept apprised of any changes and would recommend The Caring Place to anyone faced with a stay in an extended care center." -John Karien, MD, Family Member

"At the most vulnerable time of my life, The Caring Place was my emancipator. The staff, from the administrator, nurses aides, physical and occupational therapists, laundry and cleaning services; all zoned in, responsibly and professionally. The administration was compliable and responsive, creating a pleasant experience from an otherwise difficult time for me and my husband. The Caring Place is appropriately named. Would we recommend it? You Betcha!!...In A Heartbeat!!" -Barbara and Richard Wolstein, Patient and Family
