"I’m always singing the praises of Walnut Grove to others," says Claudia H. "We put a lot of time and effort into finding the best place for our mother. We’ve been very happy.

The facility has all the bells and whistles we needed. We feel so fortunate to have found Walnut Grove.
“The people at Walnut Grove are friendly," says Doris H. "My husband John really likes the fact that I’m here. We have a lot of nice residents – some I knew before I came here.

“My wife Doris is at Walnut Grove," says John H. "It's a very nice place. It’s not a large operation; it’s compact. Everyone is cared for according to their needs.

Every department seems coordinated: the workers, the cooks, the pill people, maintenance – they all do a good job. Everything just works so well.”

My wife Noreen is at Walnut Grove," says Horace S. "Some people I talked to told me to check it out, which I did, and moved her right in! I’ve seen the staff cleaning the place.

I think the workers at Walnut Grove do a heck of a good job. They’re caring and personable. They’re always watching over the residents. I think my wife gets good care; I do.”
“As a resident of Walnut Grove, I don’t want to miss activities like the weekly ice cream social," says Wayne M. "I’ve always had a craving for ice cream. I think the cost is reasonable, considering that I get all my laundry, my meals, and my medication all doled out to me. I can’t believe all the service they give. This place is kept clean. It’s just really a nice place to be. It’s very inviting. I would recommend it most highly. As a matter of fact, I’ve referred several people.”
