I want to thank all of you for the excellent, compassionate care you all provided for my mom. I had such peace of mind knowing she was with you at Sacred Heart Home. Each and every one of you are a credit to your profession and should be very proud of what you do.

We chose Sacred Heart for our Dad based both on recommendations and our own research, and in retrospect, could not possibly have done better for Dad. From his first day he was treated with respect, sensitivity and empathy by what was clearly a quality and well trained and directed staff. Any problem or concern we raised was handled promptly and effectively. -
