Once a year, we make time to remember the friends we have lost here at Dove Healthcare - Bloomer and Bloomer Assisted Living with a luminaria memorial display. This year, we had 32 bags lit for residents and tenants and an additional seven lit for family and friends.

A number of family members stopped by to see and observe, and it was so nice that they were able to come and remember with us. We hope they all know it was an honor to have their loved ones entrusted to our care.

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.
