Testimonials

"White River Lodge was a Godsend for my husband and for me also. Everyone there was so nice and took good care of my husband. I am so glad that my daughter knew about White River Lodge and recommended that he go there for rehab. He was pleased with the care he received and we so appreciate everyone there. He is doing well since his stay and we would recommend White River Lodge to anyone needing nursing facility services."
