I am so thankful for the loving and patient centered care that Saint Therese has provided for my family. Having peace of mind knowing that our dad is surrounded by staff who truly care about him, has impacted our family so much. The decision to ensure the safety and care of your loved one to others is never easy. My family and I were diligent when searching for the best choice for this transition. The daily attentive and warm atmosphere surrounding him provides us with confirmation of our decision. We are so grateful for our dad’s care at Saint Therese and for the support they provide for him and our whole family.
