“I’ve been in the hospice care industry for several years and I know the senior communities in Utah. I would love for my own parents to be able to live at Cottonwood Place.

Every time I’ve been there to care for the residents, I’ve noticed how exceptional the people are.”– Sarah, Health Services Nurse
