I have been grieving the loss of my spouse.The caregivers have been very supportive,loving and kind. I couldn't ask for better help. I am grateful to be here. Shirley Bird

" Claire is looking great thanks to you all. I wish you had seen her when she first moved into Palm Grove Rest Home. She was a fragile little old lady, very unsteady and confused at times. Now she is a picture of health and takes some work to keep up with". Submitted by her niece
