This is more like home than any place I’ve been. I love it here! I worked in nursing homes for 22 years and this is the best one I’ve ever been in. This is home to me. I have good friends.I love my roommate. She seems more like a sister than a roommate.


I’ve got the sweetest nurses here; there is one that is like a sister to me.There’s not a aid here that I don’t like. This is my home; I have all my pictures in my room and toys for any children who come to visit. Also this home doesn’t stink; I’ve been in several nursing homes that really stink.


I come here almost every summer for about 3 months while my daughter is on vacation. The staff and other residents are very kind to me. The food is good. I enjoy the activities here.


I am 95 years old, I live at Sullivan Health Care with my wife. I have a private room with a private bathroom and my wife is in a room next door. The staff take excellent care of us and there are other couples here that I can visit with.

We both realized that it was impossible for us to care for ourselves so we needed help, we have found great help. To have our own furnishings here, to be together and to be as independent as is possible for us, it seems more homelike than being in a nursing home. I didn’t know there was anything like this, what more could we want.

I just wanted to share with you how pleased I am at the care that has been given to my parents at your facility. Your Staff has gone out of their way to make my parents feel at home. I really appreciate how Courtyard Estates works with my folk’s doctors. Not only has the care been great but I am convinced that your staff was in large part responsible for my father recovering from a serious medical condition that could have been fatal had it not been for the attention given to him.

Please feel free to share this letter with prospective families that are considering relocating to Courtyard Estates. I am very thankful that Kewanee has such a quality facility to look after my Dad and Mom.

I want you all to know how much I appreciate all of the kindness, patience & love that you show to my mom, Phyllis, on a daily basis. I am not able to be there very often, so knowing someone that truly cares about her is watching over her, is a comfort to me.

These last few months have been especially difficult, but each time I have called…(which has been a lot, I know) all of you have been willing to talk to me and update me on my Mom’s day.

I just want to take this time to thank each of you… With Easter season drawing near, I am reminded how loving our Lord and Savior is to us and you are a beautiful picture of how he spreads that love to each of us in different ways.
