Serene Valley Care Home is great. I love it! They've not only been very responsive, but also proactive. We were sent there by A Place for Mom then Serene Valley Care Home guided us to where we needed to be. My mother in law is thrilled to be there. The staff has been great. Becky gets two thumbs up for being so wonderful. She calls to give updates on what's going on, and we really appreciate that. Overall we're very pleased with their services.

They were exceptional in helping get my mom in to a place where she needed to be to get hospice involved. They made the transition from living home to living in a facility really easy. She had a bed sore that was in need of attention and the care she has been receiving is nothing but exceptional.
