Testimonials

“I could not have placed my loved one in a more homelike setting than White River Lodge. The staff treated her with kindness and extended the same courtesy to me and my husband when we visited and truly made all of us feel loved. Feeling of family really does describe White River Lodge. It is a beautiful and clean facility that offers exceptional care and I knew right from the start she was in the right place. I did shop around prior to her placement there and never once thought I had made the wrong decision. I am so thankful for this facility and I highly recommend this facility to anyone whether it be for a long-term stay or a short-term stay for rehab!”
