- “Sycamore Springs has been a great blessing for our mother, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. We made the move to this beautiful new facility because it would bring her within a mile of my home, but we did no realize that the care Mother is receiving would be worth far more than convenience. The patient, loving care that we see poured out on the residents flows from women to men who show genuine concern for the residents. We are so glad to see workers and caregivers of various ages. To top off the excellent care Mother receives, all this takes place in a beautiful facility that is designed for easy inclusion of memory care residents with the full Sycamore Springs family. Our town is indeed fortunate to have a residential facility that demonstrates such a high level of kind, intentional excellence. My sister adds this observation after we moved Mother into her new home: ‘I walked out knowing in my heart that my mother is in good hands and that we are blessed.’”

“Three simple words: Peace of Mind. This is the gift of Sycamore Springs. When the time came to find long term care for our mother, Phyllis, whose dementia had been growing steadily worse for six years, my brother and I chose well. No matter how much you yearn to take on the responsibility, not out of obligation, but purest love and devotion for your loved one, you can’t do it all. It’s one of life's toughest calls. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. But we were blessed with an answer.
I was aware of Sycamore Springs' stellar reputation. Beautiful. Peaceful. Homey. Just sparkling!!! Where Sycamore Springs stands out is its vetting and choice of caregivers and nursing staff. Having played the role of caregiver for my mom, I know what it takes and how MUCH it takes. I know what the physical challenges are. I know the emotions. Sycamore Springs caregivers CARE. And most importantly, THEY LOVE. They are true angels on earth. They are family. They are remarkable!
I’m not a parent, but for those of you who are, let me express it like this: mothers and fathers will remember the concerns of leaving your child on their first day of school, the first day with a new babysitter, the first day of any separation...It’s difficult. If you want to lessen that trepidation, knowing your beautiful parent who loved, cared, nurtured, and sacrificed everything for you is well taken care of, consider Sycamore Springs.”
