"Our cherished father/husband was a resident for the past 3 1/2 years at Tranquility Road. We cannot say enough about the loving, professional, respectful care he received while a resident. That staff is the 'Best in the Business.' They embraced all of us. As a nurse (a daughter) I can't believe the care - I would be proud to work side by side with them."

"When Dad went into the 'end-of-life care' it was such a difficult time, but it was so much easier because we had the 'DCHC Angels' doing everything in anyway to make it the easiest possible for Dad & us! The cart that was placed outside Dad's door with all the supplies to help us at the end was a blessing - very useful, very helpful." - Daughter of long-term care resident, Tranquility Road
"During my husband's final hours, my family and I were impressed with the heartfelt consideration and respect demonstrated by all the staff we encountered during this poignant time. We were overwhelmed with the dignified way his passing was handled by the presentation of the beautiful quilt that was placed over him after his death. The quilt, to me, was an elegant way to honor the death of a loved one and preserve the dignity and respect as if we were at home with with friends and family and not in a health care setting." - Spouse of long-term care resident, Tranquility Road
"It was our incredible good fortune to have my wife cared for at Eden Way. When I think about the series of coincidences that guided us there, it was truly a miracle. A very brief stay in a local assisted living facility told me that assisted living would not work for her. Then we heard about an opening in Eden Way. We liked it right away. It was clean, and there was a lot of space, but it was the nurses, CNAs, and staff that I liked the most. You have amazing people. My heart did not want my wife in Omaha but I made myself listen to her doctors and health care providers. It was the best decision I could have made. Everything that had happened had guided us to Omaha and to Douglas County Health Center. I just needed to listen." - Spouse of long-term care resident, Eden Way
