"Dear Leland & Bonnie,

Thank you for welcoming us & letting us be a part of an amazing place. This took me and the journey of transformation to a new level. The friends I met here, I hope to keep in contact with My advice to new people entering the doors of this home is lay your baggage down, even emotional baggage. This is about you, this is your time, you were brought here for a reason. Take peace in that, and remember what really lies within your shell."

"Dear Leland & Bonnie,

While I am rarely at a loss for words, the amount of relief & gratefulness I have for you two & for this place is incomparable even to a dictionary. For so long we’ve been on our own to arrange everything for ourselves, the fact that you both were so willing to assist & accommodate both of us is something we will never forget. This life altering journey that I’ve finally completed wouldn’t have been so stress free without you two. We loved our week here and we will never forget you Much love & the deepest heartfelt of thanks."

A Safe Place

Your safety and peace of mind are vital to your recovery. Recovering with us takes away all your stress and worries.


Not only are our rates are comparable to a hotel, but we provide you with basic supplies and transportation, saving you a lot of cash.

Experienced Staff

New Beginnings is run with plenty of TLC! Leland has over 20 years of nursing experience, and Bonnie is a life coach and has been a pain management therapist since 1989.

Great Food

Food can be expensive, especially when traveling for surgery, so we offer an abundance of delicious, healthy food provided by the well-known, and very generous Trader Joe's.

Therapy Animals

For those who love animals, our resident therapy animals Molly and Gidget (two sweet hypoallergenic Yorkies) and Daisy (an enthusiastic and social Senegal Parrot) will keep you in high spirits!


A recliner is a necessity when recovering from top surgery, since you can't immediately lie flat. We provide a cozy recliner in every bedroom as well as in common areas.

Great Community

Nothing beats recovering in the company of others who are sharing the same experience. At New Beginnings, you will have the opportunity to create strong, lifelong friendships while you recover.


Traveling can be stressful when you aren't familiar with the area. We pick up you up from the airport, get you to your appointments, pick up prescriptions, and get you back to the airport hassle-free.
