Thank you very much for each day helping me to get stronger! Therapy department is great! My stay here was pretty good and I will miss you all! Some of you have become friends and I cherish that. I appreciate the activities as well!


I could not ask for better care. Everyone was polite and well-trained in their field. My questions were all answered promptly. I would recommend Hickory Creek to everyone I know. I came here knowing about their good care because my father-in-law was here 13 years and got excellent care! I want to say thank you to all the staff. God bless you all!


The entire staff and administration were extremely helpful and supportive during my rehab.The staff were always very responsive to my needs from all standpoints.The PT and OT staff and their assistants were fantastic! They made my rehab very effective and personable so my plan was tailored to fit my needs. A special thank you to Donna, STNA. She was always right there to help no matter the situation and did it with a smile. Also, Sam is awesome. He made sure my needs were met and kept me informed of everything going on in my care from an administrative standpoint. Seems like he is always here. Last, Samantha was extremely helpful in my discharge planning.


The staff was very helpful with my rehab.The nurses and aides were extremely nice.The physical therapy was very helpful with my rehab.


You all did a great job with me during my stay. Some of the staff went above and beyond and done extra for me. I hope I wasn’t a pain for anyone. I enjoyed my stay at Hickory Creek. If I ever need to go somewhere again Hickory Creek will be my first choice!


Thanks to everyone here at Hickory Creek. My care was excellent! The Nurses were very caring and always had a smile on their faces. The breakfast food here at Hickory Creek is the best breakfast food I have ever had. Everyone’s patience with me meant a lot and was very helpful with my condition. I really enjoyed my room and the bird feeders outside my window; it helped pass the time as I enjoy bird watching.


The staff has made my stay here very comfortable. Everyone has been very good to me and my family members. From nurses to other staff members, I have received excellent care! Thank you for the care you give so that me and others can go home!


Our stay at Hickory Creek was obviously wonderful. The staff were always courteous and efficient. Bethany and Lauren were totally awesome!! They both went above and beyond the call of duty! We deeply appreciate the care.


We want to bring to your attention the fact that all your nurses and medical aids are really devoted to their patents' well-being and they are doing a very good job. They are well-trained, kind, compassionate, and ready to help when in need.

For us, Bethany is very special. She is a very responsible, dedicated, professional. She pays attention to all the details, she listens to you. She is exceptional!

On the day my husband didn't feel well, I asked for her advice. She was the one who convinced me to take him to the hospital right away and she did the paperwork. From the hospital, I kept her informed about my husband;s progress. We think she deserves to be rewarded and for other employees. She is our hero! She saved my husband's life!


My stay at HCNC was great. I made a lot of friends, more friends than I've ever had & I am really going to miss them. I am very thankful for this facility & all the staff including therapy. They have all helped change my life & get me back home. To everyone at HCNC, thank you so much. I will miss each and every one of you.


My stay at HCNC was really good.  I will miss everyone and all of the staff.  The staff took great care of me and went above and beyond.  I really enjoyed nursing home week!  Activities done a great job.  Thank you to the therapy staff for pushing me hard in therapy to get to return home.  Thanks to everyone at HCNC.


I was treated very good here, and love everyone that helped me in my stay. Thank you all for your help in getting me back on my feet.

Ms. Krannitz

You all did a great job with me. More than anything I'm happy and thankful you helped me to get to home with my dogs.


I really appreciate everything you've done for my mom. This wouldn't have been possible [without] all of your help. Thank you all for everything.

Mike (Mary's son)

Building and residents clean and staff very friendly. Received help as needed. Enjoyed time outside as I am a smoker. Grateful for the help. Food was very good.


I had great care. All of you made me feel at home. I wish that I would have came here first then I would not have had all the pain that was put on me. Thank you all and God bless you.


My experience was very positive. My cousin, Cedric, lived longer than was expected due to the excellent care he received at Hickory Creek of Athens. I live in Columbus and could typically only visit once a week. The receptionist, Debbie; the social worker, Samantha; and the nurses (especially Caitlyn and Tina) were very helpful when I called to check on Cedric. They also contacted me immediately if his condition changed. I truly appreciated their professionalism and thoughtfulness.


Thank you for the care you all gave me. Everyone was kind & caring. [I] liked all of the nurses & the aides were great. Physical therapy was fun to work with. Even if you didn't want to do it, they got you to where you do. Miss all of you. God Bless you all. Thanks again. Your friend.


The staff do an excellent job! They keep us all motivated and grounded. They are a great group of folks. I don’t think I could do it but I am glad they are here.


I was treated like family.  My wishes were meet and respected! The food was well balanced and a wide variety.


Shirley has lived at Hickory Creek for a couple of months. I was not able to make it down to see Shirley because I live out of state, but It made me feel good knowing Shirley was being looked after so kindly!


I've had my wife, sister, and brother [at Hickory Creek]. My brother is still there. The staff, including nursing and the office people are very nice and caring. Always when you walk in the front door you're greeted with a smile and a welcome...I would highly recommend Hickory Creek...My brother has never had it so good as he does there. Just want to say, "keep up the good work and thank you for all that you do!" Also would like to say that Debbie makes him smile every day.


I personally couldn't say one bad thing about my experience here! Everyone is amazing and honestly helped me with every situation I have been through. I definitely would be honored to come back if a situation came up in the future. Thank you to all of the staff and even the patrons I have had the privilege to meet and know. God bless.


The staff and administration at Hickory Creek are always caring, effective, and pleasant. The rooms are well kept and the food tasty and plentiful.


I have a relative and three other individuals under my care at Hickory Creek of Athens. All have and are currently receiving the personalized attention and medical care appropriate for the maintenance of a healthy and active living environment and promotion of their mental and physical well-being. I am extremely satisfied with the care and attention they all receive from the staff and medical personnel of Hickory Creek.


The staff on the secure unit are the best I've ever seen.


My mother was a resident at Hickory Creek for over ten years. She liked here and I thought she got good care. I began to volunteer before my mom passed and enjoyed it so much.
The advice I have for families who place their loved one in Hickory Creek - come and visit. Visit often, get involved with what goes on. This is your loved one's home now too.


Your facility does not treat him like a patient. You treat him like a person. You are very attentive to his care. He is a tough case. I have never felt as comfortable as I do now that Ken is being taken care of.


I love Jill and Kristen. They do a good job. Any time I have a question, they take the time to talk to me. Carrie also does a great job. She often goes above and beyond for my mom by doing little things like getting her snacks, etc.


I get good care. I get treated like an angel. I love this place.


Heather and Dena have been amazing to me throughout my recovery. The physical therapy here is not just physical therapy...the ladies here are passionate, caring, and very hard workers. They really want to see people do better for themselves! If we could recommend a therapist it would be Heather and Dena - hands down. Thank you!


It was a good place to get help. When I needed a place to get better and get my life back together. Thank you all.


More homes need people like Nicole! It was obvious watching her interact with [the residents] that they loved her just as much as she loved them.

Dr. Dillon

My experience here has been very great the STNA's, Nurse's, Dr.'s, and therapy groups are amazing they're very caring and respectful. Everyone here takes they're job's serious and are very professional. I've been here since June 2019 in the short time I been here I have made a dramatic recovery I owe it all to their staff and all I can do is say thank you.


Everyone was nice, treated me good. Nurses helped me get off of vent machine helped me through masking, respiratory, physical, and occupational therapy - I thank all of you. I couldn't walk or stand when I came here. Dena & Heather told me I would leave here walking. I am.. They are pleasant, sympathetic, and very hard-working, care about the work they do. Thank you to all the aides for taking care of me.


My father had fabulous care at Hickory Creek. Every single person took great care of him ensuring he was in no pain. They tried to satisfy his every want and need. I cannot state strongly enough how very very pleased our family was with his care. His last days were comfortable and at peace.
