“My family looked at several different nursing facilities before choosing this one. Before admission I also came out to tour and knew right away that this was the place I wanted to be. The facility was clean and everyone was so friendly. People that I didn't know were saying ‘Hello’ to me. I have never regretted my choice to come here. Now I am the resident council president and have made many friends here. All of the staff is fantastic and very caring. This is a very nice place to be. The wonderful people here make it feel like home.”
Florence W., Resident (Carlinville)
“How grateful I am that my 85 year old parents are enjoying life together at Bethany!! They love a variety of musical guests, bingo, sittercise, watching movies and dining with other residents. The staff at Bethany is professional and very accommodating to their needs. I visit often and witness the staff caring for the residents with their respect and care as if they were their own family. When I leave I feel comfortable that they are being well cared for. What a better way to honor my parents!”
Cheryl T., Family of residents (Bethany)
"I don't know that there is anything I don't appreciate. They do a fabulous job of making my dad feel important, needed and helpful. They have done a fabulous job for my dad. It is an awesome place and the food is great. The apartments are nice and large and they respect the residents"

“My wife is at Dixon Rehabilitation & Health Care Center, and is a resident on their Courtyard Unit. I live close to the facility and I come in every day to eat and assist my wife at lunch. The staff on the Courtyard Unit have been wonderful with assisting her with her every day needs. I am very pleased that we chose this facility for long term placement.”

“I really enjoy working at Gentilly Gardens, because I sincerely enjoy the residents and their spirits. I especially enjoy working in Pathways, because the residents there are like my little angels. Everyone here is kind and has respect for each other; team work is practiced here every day. I really admire and appreciate the directors, because they also help make work here enjoyable. One thing I appreciate about Gentilly is when you walk through the door you feel like you’re at home.”
Lynn Walden, Resident Assistant (Gentilly Gardens)
“I have a wonderful apartment; the floor plan creates a real sense of spaciousness. I enjoy the social aspect of dining with other residents, the dining staff makes you feel at home and the food is good. I also look forward to the great entertainment we have here at Happy Hour and Candlelight Dinner.”

“I love working here because we are a family. I enjoy the residents, their families and our staff. We encourage creativity in aging and continually seek to update approaches and interventions in dementia care.”
Johnna, Memory Care Coordinator (Stratford Commons)
“From the first day, I loved the marketing staff. I loved the professionalism and TLC that the nursing staff gave my mom. The maintenance staff was very responsive about things we needed help with or done. The kitchen staff was super respectful and patient. They also turned out some really good food. I would say other would have a hard time finding any place that was more professionally run or that offered as much TLC to the residents and the residents’ family. It was also affordable.”
Marsha M., Family of resident (Rose Estates)
“My husband and I chose to reside at Willow Care Center as a couple when we knew we could no longer stay at home. We were impressed it was so clean and friendly. Another reason my husband and I chose Willow Care Center was the level of care was perfect for us. I especially enjoy the dining area it’s so bright and cheerful. I can honestly say that I’ve always had good, cheerful care by the staff, they are nice people.”
Roberta H., Resident (Willow Care)
