"I returned to Sault Ste. Marie in June and stayed until my rehab was satisfactory. When I left this time, it was like leaving school and saying goodbye to all of my friend...They treated me with respect and compassion and made every effort to comfort me..."

"The family of Elsie Brown wishes to offer a belated thank you to you and the entire staff. I can't tell you how pleased we all were with the care and the rehab she received. Elsie is home and doing very well. She is walking better and is able to do more for herself than she did before. Sault Ste. Marie is a fine facility mostly due to its patient and caring staff. Thanks also for listening to her family. When we first met you, Amanda, we felt as though we finally met someone who understood our situation. I can't say enough good things about Tendercare."
- Kathy Brown, family member
"I was a patient at your facility and I wanted to write and tell you that I was treated very well by all; and especially by the physical therapy department. They pushed me to do better on my exercises and I got stronger. They continued to push me to lose weight and I even then got stronger. I am 72 years old but feel like 60, so thank you to all of the people of Sault Ste. Marie."
- Pat Maloney, patient
