"This is a note of great appreciation for the care that all of you provided for my mother during her stay at Tendercare. The treatment she received was excellent. The thoughtfulness and personal interest that she received from all of you was exceptional and was beyond the call of duty."
- Robert Fleisher, son of previous patient
"I like the activities we do here. Playing cards is my favorite, but we also do puzzles, games, etc. We even have a coffee hour to just plain talk and really get to know each other."
- Joyce Goodwill, patient
"I would like to take this opportunity to give a special thank you to the staff of your vent unit. Can I say what a blessing to have such a wonderful staff and medical facility. My sister was a patient there for the past ten years and your staff from day one of my visit to the last, was OUTSTANDING. It's not often that you find the complete staff or organization with such a positive outlook and attitude. I must say that is exactly what I observed during my visits. I know in a lot of ways she became a member of your family there, and I am so glad you were able to share part of your life with her."
- Randolph M. Smith, brother of previous patient
