We would personally like to thank all of the staff of the Boise Idaho State Veterans Alzheimers Unit. My father was admitted over a year ago and just passed away on 01-09-2011. My mother and I both witnessed the highest level of nursing care, excellent Social services staff,nurses,chaplain,activities, financial /administrative
team and support groups.
