09/14/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Our mother was a patient in the rehab facility. She fell twice while she was there and she was there recovering and receiving rehab services after breaking her hip. Overall we were very disappointed except for the exceptional care the CNA's gave our mother. The physical therapy was certainly below what we were told she received. We were disappointed overall.

08/27/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Mom has been at Pikes Peak Care Center since she fell and broke her hip earlier this year. The staff has been so cooperative and caring, taking that extra step to make sure she is comfortable and to inform her family on what is happening. My aunt who works at a care center in AZ rated Pikes Peak as Top Notch. I am so pleased Mom is in this facility. They are fabulous to work with.
