"We would like to thank you so much for the excellent care that you provide to our Mother. Daily, you treat her with loving care and respect. Not only do you attend to her physical needs, but you are attentive to her emotional concerns as well. we can truly say that she has never been treated as an ill person, but rather as a person with an illness. You put the dignity of the person on an equal plane with the illness. From bathing to dressing to speech therapy to eating, she is always listened to and her concerns are addressed. Each time we have spoken with you, you have been on top of the issue. Even when some items take time, you continually pursue what is best for our Mom. There is so much you do with compassion and respect. You truly do provide tendercare both physically and emotionally."

"I want to take a moment to thank you for the marvelous job you all are doing caring for our son. Rarely do I visit when I find him alone, it seems someone is always in his room, attending to his needs, or just looking after things."
- Jim and Joane McIntyre, family members
"Personality, care giving, kindness, patience and determination are only a few adjectives that describe most nurses aides and therapists at the Traverse City facility. When I look back to just 3 weeks ago of how my limbs and body were when I entered the doors of Traverse City, I was very weak and hardly able to do anything for myself. But with the support of the rehabilitation program and the supervision of all the staff, I have a much better outlook about myself. I feel ready to care for myself for the most part, therefore going home to continue my rehab program and get stronger as life continues on."
- Donald Lund, patient
