Gene and family took a private pontoon cruise last week! A cooler of beverages, some sun, and the water were a recipe for a great day and another family memory for the scrapbook!

The team at Dove Healthcare - Bloomer helped me gain my independence back. They met my needs both mentally and physically. I went from being non-mobile and needing a hoyer lift to now walking over 100 feet with a walker, getting up by myself, and going home.
The CNAs and nurses were like God's angels; very caring, loving, and understanding. The food is very good and nutritional. If it wasn't for the professional and kind therapy I received, I wouldn't be able to get up and down. In fact, all the employees here, no matter what department, were so caring and kind, making me feel at home. I highly recommend Dove Healthcare - Bloomer to anyone.
