"CWTH is a very special place that has been indispensable in helping me care for my mom since arriving at age ninety-five. Through COVID and a mild stroke the staff and its leadership have always done what is in her best interest.  Communication is open, honest, and caring, with maintenance of dignity being primary on everyone's agenda.   And the beauty of the facility is second to none."
