“My wife has been living at Billings Lodge for 3 ½ years and needs full time care. I am very impressed with the care she receives. Her entire environment is spotlessly clean and the caregivers are wonderfully compassionate; they exhibit God-given talent, augmented with training and experience. It is also comforting to see that many staff members, whose primary tasks are not in the care area, still take time to engage with June, thereby making her day much more pleasant.”
