"This is the most wonderful place, everyone is so friendly and kind. Therapy worked with me through my recovery, because of them I am able to go home. I tell all my friends and family I love this place, and I'm not lying!!"

-Nancy, previous resident

"Shady Rest Care Center was the last residence for our mother. She was given very loving and professional care during her entire stay.  The staff were all very supportive and compassionate to our mother.  Even mom’s stubbornness did not deter their wonderful way of caring for mom. I think mom came to think of many of the staff as her family.  They all shared in so many last moments. We are so very fortunate to have had our mother in such an excellent facility.  I have recommended and will continue to recommend Shady Rest Care Center to many friends. Thank you all for taking such wonderful care of our mother."

-Mary, daughter of previous resident.
