Tuscola Health Care Center

On Behalf of myself an the family and friends of Marilyn Adams, I would like to thank you and your staff for the high level of care provided for her. When my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer, I knew that putting mom into a nursing facility was inevitable.

It was obvious right away that this was not going to last, as mom required more care than they were capable of providing. I was holding my breath, waiting for the call to come and get her when I received a call from Pam stating that you had an opening for mom. When we moved her in, I remember you told me that you were not perfect, but that you would give her the best care you could. You were right. While not perfect, I think mom was as happy and well cared for as she could have been, given the circumstances.

While there are some things I would have done differently, entrusting my beloved mother to the care of you and your staff i
