Will we always recommend Sandstone?

The truth is we may not always be the right fit for you and your family. That doesn’t mean we don’t want to help. Give us a call and we’ll help guide you to whatever the next right step is — even if it’s not with us.

Our friendly and helpful admissions team can help determine if Sandstone Care could be a good fit. If we feel it is not a good fit for you, we will help connect you with other programs or resources to better support you.
