Aides were very attentive
My stay was alright! All the aides were very attentive and was able to come when I called. My physical therapy was good, it helped very much with my walking and upper body strength. The food was okay when I got what I wanted. Thank you Hillside Center!
James Bennefield and Veronica Granthan always make sure we have what we need. They both are great aides!
Treated with respect and dignity
From the time I walked into Hillside's doors I was treated with respect and dignity. Sara I thought you had the warmest smile I ever did see and the weeks that followed my stay that smile never left. The nursing staff did an excellent job taking care of my wants. Katie was there to attend and gather the team together if I had concerns. Nichelle used all of her resources to help me. The administration staff to the nursing staff made my stay here an experience that I will never forget. Evening nurse Anita was especially kind and answered all of my questions and concerns. Rehab department was WONDERFUL!! God Bless the staff here and the work they do!! Thank you for EVERYTHING!!
Very compassionate and caring
I can't say enough about your staff. They all are very compassionate and caring. Especially Katie, what a great nurse. I honestly can't think of a negative thing to say about my stay. They all excel at what they do. I would like to thank everyone that works at the Hillside Center. Thank you for everything!
"My mother was at Hillside Center for 3 weeks after having knee replacement surgery and all she has done is rave about the wonderful staff that worked with her from the rehabilitation department. Mom said, 'If it were not for those therapists, I would not have made it through this'. Mom is now home and doing well and plans on having her other knee done in about 3 months, and the plan is to return to Hillside Center for her rehabilitation. Hillside, thank you, thank you, thank you!" - A. Tinnin/C. Johnson
"I would like to thank all the staff at Hillside Center for the wonderful care that was given to my mother during her stay there. My mom is doing very well at home and we owe it all to you guys.
I would also like to thank the Administrative staff, especially the Admissions and Business Office for all their help, especially with the financial dynamics involving my mothers care and the transition from one state to another.
I have recommended Hillside Center to several of my co-workers and friends who are looking to place their loved ones and will continue to do so." - A.Venabales/M. Veneables
"From the first contact with the receptionist right to the nursing staff they always exemplify a professional, courteous and caring demeanor. We truly enjoy working with your team." - Marshall/TransCare
I received excellent care at the Hillside Center. Staff was prompt to address my needs. Also they were respectful of my privacy. I would recommend this as the best facility for nursing care and therapy.
Gentle and kind
All the nursing staff were gentle and kind from the day I came in to the Hillside Center. I would want to be taken care of by another facility. There was always something fun to do. Everyone had my interest at heart!! I am going to miss this place!
I thank God for the Hillside Center. If it wasn't for God and the care that I received from Hillside along with inspiration my hope of walking again wouldn't of happened without their guidance. Thank God!! Bless the staff, therapy department and the nursing staff!!
A road to complete recovery
Having been an employee of the Hillside Center for almost 22 years, it was an eye opener to view it as a patient. Having no idea how dedicated the staff from nursing to dietary & housekeeping. I found my stay here a road to complete recovery. Almost forgot PT was excellent!!
Treated like a queen
Everyone here has treated me like I was a queen. I have no problems with the nursing staff. The rooms are kept spotless. If you need any kind of help someone was always there to assist. The dietary service was excellent. If I need more help in the future Hillside is where I would like to come back to. Thank you Hillside Center!
Very positive experience
I had a very positive experience here at the Hillside Center. The staff was welcoming in every department.

Care and support
To all the staff at Hillside Center: This is a belated thank you to the entire staff at Hillside, and especially on the 2nd floor, for being there each day to take care of my brother Matt and all of your clients. I know this is a very scary time, and each Covid positive client makes it more scary for you all. You know how much our families depend upon your care of our loved ones, and we so appreciate the care and support you provide each day. My sisters and I pray for the health of your staff and their families as well as your clients. On behalf of Matthew White and my sisters, I thank you so very much. God bless and stay well!

Professional and caring support
I came into Hillside barely able to use my left leg. Now I'm walking and almost recuperated. The PT staff was great and very personable. Nurses there were very supportive in caring for my needs. The management staff was professional and was there if I ever needed them. Let me not forget about the CNA's, they were phenomenal and amazing especially Angel, James and Brittney. I highly recommend this place! Thank you Hillside!

Wonderful rehab, nutritious meals
When I came to Genesis Hillside I thought it was just another nursing home, I quickly found out I was wrong. The staff and therapy people are wonderful!! I love them!! The meals are nutritious, hot and are delivered every time, on time. The therapy group is awesome. They get us up and moving everyday!! If you have a room with help and meals that are hot and you know you are safe, why would you want to go anywhere else?
- Vincenza R.
