What our residents are saying:
"When we were looking for our new home, we wrote a mission statement to focus on the things that were most important to us. Willow Valley was the only place that met or exceeded all our requirements. My husband’s long-term care insurance was costing us a fortune, but by moving here, we could give up that policy. That’s what LifeCare does; there is no additional cost to continuing care." - Pat Dillon
