Client Stories

Belle Fourche played a huge role in my recovery. When I arrived after a bout of pneumonia I was weak and couldn’t walk. The therapy staff is very knowledgeable and thorough with everything. Not only are they concerned about your health, they also make sure your stay is enjoyable. Being here improved my physical abilities and now I can walk with a walker. Coming here changed my whole perception of nursing homes.
