“Our family feels very blessed to have discovered the Independence House…  The warm atmosphere, small population, good nutrition and caring staff are things that mean a lot…”

“…what really matters most is the staff. The people at Mandarin House are the most caring and patient people we have ever had the pleasure of knowing…  There are plenty of reassurances, hand holding and hugs to go around.”

“No one wants to see a loved one suffer from Alzheimer’s or other diseases that cause memory loss and dementia. But at the Independence House, my mom isn’t just another patient – she’s a person with thoughts and feelings who’s treated with the respect she deserves. Making the decision to place a loved one is never easy… I can rest easy knowing my mom is being taken care of when I can’t be there.  And that is a tremendous gift.”

“We know that [our mother] has caring people taking care of her.  We have had many instances where we have witnessed the emotional caring that the staff has.  We feel blessed that we are able to have our mother in a place where people care for her, talk with her, and take the time to make it as easy as possible on our mother.”

Lynn and Karen B.

“I liked The Independence House at Northview because of the location and the fact that is had a memory center. The Staff was great, and the facility director called me back and had a nice long conversation about the place. It was very clean and very nice. The location was great and close to where we have a home and to my sister who also lives in that area. Pricing was very good and within our budget. I wish the individual rooms were a little bit larger, but they were very adequate and I understand the reason they are smaller.”


“Thank you to the Staff of The Independence House and Horisun Hospice who took such loving care of our Mother, with the compassion and dignity she so deserved.”
