Albert McFarlane

Former Patient at Buffalo Center

I had been hospitalized for heart failure, and when they were ready to discharge me, I was ready to go home. Or so I thought. The medical staff recommended that I go to a rehab facility. I wondered why. I’m fine, I thought. But once I was admitted to Buffalo Center, it only took me a couple of days to realize how important rehab was. I was weaker than I thought. The physical and occupational therapists put together a personalized therapy plan for me and I was amazed by how much stronger the daily exercises made me feel. I was only at Buffalo Center for two weeks, and the therapists and nurses were all wonderful. I don’t want to get sick again, but if I do I’d go back to Buffalo Center for sure!

Angela Teague

Former Patient at Glens Falls Center

I was in pain, serious debilitating pain. I couldn’t sleep, I was always tired and had no appetite. I just couldn’t think straight. And it was all caused by my deep depression. But things started to look up as soon as I was admitted Glens Falls Center. I didn’t want to do anything, but thanks to the rehab team, which was so positive, supportive, and encouraging, I started a regular course of physical therapy. But they also helped me emotionally as well. Physically, mentally and emotionally, I started feeling stronger and more confident. I returned home after three and a half months of good, hard work. I haven’t felt this healthy in a long time. The Glens Falls Center team made a world of difference in my life!

Angelica P.

Former patient at Wichita Center

"I was really scared. I suffered from severe pain, and when the doctors said I had to go to a skilled nursing facility to recover and rehab, I was afraid I would never go home again. The pain was so bad, I wondered if I’d survive it. But the moment I met the staff at Wichita Center, my mood began to improve. They made me feel right at home, and after creating a personalized rehab plan based on my needs, they assured me I was going to get better and stronger. And they were right! My condition has improved immensely, and my family is so happy to see how I’m progressing. Wichita Center is a good place filled with good people doing an excellent job. The pain I felt is nearly gone, and in its place I have only gratitude for the Wichita Center team."

Ann Smith

Former Patient at Wichita Center

I had some very serious open wounds, and there were signs of infection. It was essential that I get immediate, professional care to prevent them from getting worse. And that’s exactly what I got at Wichita Center. The team was amazing, so kind and nice. But they were also gentle, dressing my wounds with such care. It was difficult: because of the pandemic, I couldn’t see my family, but the nurses and the assistants became like family to me. My wounds are almost completely closed now, and if anyone asks me about rehabbing at Wichita Center, I’d say “Go! They’ll make you feel better faster!” The staff there has the healing touch.

Anthony Cacho

Former Patient at Northern Riverview

I had gotten into an accident, which really messed me up. I was in a wheelchair, unable to put any weight on my left leg, and my left arm was in a cast. Not only that but I was experiencing short-term memory loss. I couldn’t remember names of sports figures or the lyrics to popular songs. What’s so great about the rehab therapy at Northern Riverview is that they treated the whole me—physically, mentally and emotionally. I had zero motivation when I was admitted, but the therapists made sure I got moving. They worked with me and encouraged me almost every day. I was constantly updating my family: “I can walk now.” “I can move my hand.” And all thanks to the Northern Riverview team. They are amazing!

Arthur Taylor

Former Patient at Beth Abraham Center

One of my favorite things about Beth Abraham Center was the actual facility. I have been to other nursing homes and Beth Abraham Center is, by far, the nicest. The therapy gym was equipped with state-of-the-art machinery and equipment, making my experience that much better. Another aspect of the facility that I enjoyed during my stay was the outdoor patio. The large open space of the patio was beneficial for me as I would go out daily to get fresh air and stretch my legs.

Arvilla Fuller

Former Patient at Glens Fall Center

I took a bad fall and fractured my left hip. I had surgery to put a metal rod in the hip, but when I was discharged, I couldn’t put any weight on my leg. I needed help with bathing, dressing—just about everything. I got that help—and a lot more—at Glens Falls Center. The entire staff was wonderful. The aides on my unit went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed. And my therapists—both physical and occupational—were great! It took three months of hard work, but every minute was worth it. Thanks to the Glens Falls Center team, I’m back home and able to walk with the help of a walker. All I can say is: If you need rehab, go to Glens Falls Center!

Audrey Cash-Ford

Resident at Beth Abraham Center

I have been a resident here at Beth Abraham Center for over 10 years and the one thing I can say about this community is that we are truly a family. I have met many amazing staff members throughout my years, people who genuinely care and support the residents. During holidays and birthdays, we host parties for each other and experience everything a real family otherwise would. The unwavering love and support of the staff is the reason why I am so happy here at Beth Abraham Center.

Bethany Fuller

Resident at Wichita Center

I was very sick, and my condition had gotten steadily worse—so bad that I was finally admitted to the hospital. They finally got my condition under control, but being in the hospital, laid up in bed, I got progressively weaker. I could barely stand up. When it came near time for me to be discharged, my son went into action. He researched all the rehab facilities in or near Wichita, and toured them as well. The minute he walked into Wichita Center, he knew that it was the place for me—the friendly smiles, the sparkling clean rooms, and the high-tech rehab equipment sold him. And he was right on the mark! The therapy departments—physical and occupational—have been great. They’ve worked me hard, but never too hard, and that’s just what I needed. I love the staff and the residents here. My son says, “Mom, you’re getting stronger every day.” And I owe it all to the wonderful people at Wichita Center. Their strength has become mine.

Betty

Resident at Wichita Center

It was the sickest I’ve ever been. I had a urinary tract infection. The pain was extreme, with cramping, nausea, vomiting and fever. I didn’t know what to do. Thankfully, the team at Topeka Center did. First thing, they made me feel comfortable, always answering when I called and supporting me at every turn. They were not only treating my illness, they were taking care of me. Thanks to the therapists, nurses—thanks to everyone at Topeka Center—I’m doing much better. The pain is gone, and I’ve got my strength back. If anybody asked me to recommend a place to rehab, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second. The answer: Topeka Center is the place to go!

Billy Hill

Former Patient at Topeka Center

I caught COVID-19, and combined with my diabetes and COPD, it really hit me hard. I was very weak and I couldn’t trust my legs to keep me balanced. It was frightening. As soon as I was admitted to Topeka Center, I started to feel better. Everyone there welcomed me with a smile and promised me they would get me back on my feet. The nurses, therapists, dietitian, recreation department—everyone there took part in my recovery and rehab. Topeka Center made a promise to me—and they kept it. Within three weeks I was stronger, and able to get around on my own with the help of a walker. COVID-19 beat me down, but with the help of Topeka Center I beat it back, and now I’m home again!

Bridget Turner

Former Patient at Rochester Center

I was fighting for my health on two fronts. At first, I was experiencing a general feeling of malaise—an overall feeling of discomfort and a lack of energy. The condition was compounded when I tested positive for COVID-19. It was a tough fight, but thankfully I was admitted to Creekview for my recovery. The entire team there was on my side. The therapy staff was awesome—they got me moving without pushing me too hard. The dietitian recommended changes in my diet, and the recreation department lifted my spirits. I’m back home now and much better. My experience at Creekview Nursing and Rehab was really great. Everyone there deserves an A+ all the way!

Bryan Volpini

Patient at Richmond Center

I had COVID and I spent 80 days at the Richmond University Hospital, literally fighting for my life. I won the fight, but I was very weak, unable to walk or even grip things in my hand. I was admitted to Richmond Center, and the team designed a plan to help me get stronger. It was hard work, but well worth it. The staff, from the aides to the nurses to the therapists promised I would get better, and they came through. I’ve been at Richmond Center for a month and I feel a 100% better. I can walk on my own and move in my room independently with a walker. I’m on the mend now and can’t wait to get back home to my community. They call me the “miracle patient,” and thanks to the team at Richmond Center, it’s true!

Byford Heiniger

Former Paitent at Topeka Center

I had a stroke, and I lost the ability to walk. I couldn’t do the simplest things. I was totally dependent on others. I was very unhappy and frustrated. I didn’t know what to do. Thankfully, the team at Topeka Center knew exactly what to do. They designed a plan specifically for me. The therapists did remarkable work; they motivated and encouraged me, and before long I was feeling stronger. They taught me how to get around in a wheelchair and within three months, I was back home and on my own. Topeka Center came through in a big way. Not only did they get me going again, they provided a road map for going forward with home health services. I highly recommend Topeka Center!

Carey Gordon

Former patient at Beth Abraham Center

"I was born with arteriovenous malformation (AVM), an abnormal tangle of blood vessels in the brain. In an attempt to treat the condition, I undertook three embolizations, and one surgery, during which I suffered a stroke. I was admitted to Beth Abraham Center to recover, but I didn’t like being away from my home and my job. The Center's team was very patient with me. The therapists worked with me every day, and I started to make progress. It was hard work but good work. The staff at Beth Abraham Center did a lot more than help me walk and talk and read and write again. We had movie nights, special groups and special lunches. I even started taking a cooking class, and honing my culinary skills became part of my therapy. It was really fun. I have a seizure disorder and I do need help, which is exactly what Beth Abraham Center provided, getting me home again. The real miracle is that they showed me how to enjoy life again. That’s a real blessing! "

Carlos Guichardo

Former Patient at Triboro Center

My condition had gone from bad to worse. I was anemic—dizzy, tired and short of breath. My diabetes and high blood pressure contributed to my weakness. I couldn’t get out of bed—which led to a pressure ulcer on my hip. I need rehab, and I knew exactly where to go: Triboro Center. I’d been there before, and I knew from experience that they are excellent. The team didn’t disappoint. The therapists checked in with me every day, as did my nurse. The rehab program they designed for me worked wonders. When I came to Triboro Center, I couldn’t get out of bed. Two months later I’m home, walking and going up stairs on my own!

Carmen Cuevas

Patient at Concord Nursing & Rehabilitation Center

"I had suffered a stroke and was seriously incapacitated. I couldn’t walk—I couldn’t even dress myself. I had been to four nursing homes before, but it wasn’t until I came to Concord Center that I began to feel I could get better. The staff made me feel very welcome and—this is important to me—they answered whenever I called. They responded within minutes. The entire team worked together to encourage me and make me stronger. And the place itself is immaculate. My daughter said to me: “Mommy, this building is so clean and smells so good!” Believe me, this is my fifth nursing home, and by far the best. I came here without even being able to dress on my own, now I’m independent again! Amazing!"

Carol Plummer

Resident at Granville Center

I had been in and out of the ICU at Glens Falls Hospital for a month, and my muscle tone was gone. I was in bad shape. My legs couldn’t support my body. I knew that my journey back to good health would only be beginning when I left the hospital. Choosing the right place to rehab was crucial, and my daughter and I set out to research my options. From the reviews, ratings and comments online, I decided on Granville Center—and from the moment I arrived I knew I made the right choice. The place was so clean, and everyone was all smiles. But when I went to the rehab gym and I saw the residents moving about, I got very emotional. One of the Physical Therapists saw how upset I was and came over to me. That can be you, she said. Work hard, and we’ll get you back on your feet. That’s all I needed: hope. The caring, compassionate, expert staff at Granville Center have done so much for me.

Carol Wilson

Former Patient at Martine Center

I had been treated at the hospital for diabetic wounds, and when it came time for my recovery and rehab I was very nervous. I didn’t know what to expect. Would the staff be friendly? Would they know how to help me? Would I be comfortable there? The answers were yes, yes and yes. The Martine Center team welcomed me with warmth and smiles. They made me feel right at home. The medical staff healed my wounds, and the therapists helped make me stronger. But there was much more to it. I loved the food, and the activities were great—programs like cooking and arts and crafts. All in all, the Martine Center staff encouraged and empowered me. They healed my wounds and warmed my heart.

Carolyn

Resident at Wichita Center

I don’t know how to explain it—I just wasn’t feeling well at all, weak and in pain all the time. Finally, when I took a fall, my family convinced me that I should check into a facility for short-term rehab—take the time to heal and feel better. I’m glad I listened to them, and I’m very happy that we chose Wichita Center. From the moment I entered, everyone was great—they treated me like family. They were also right on top of my medical needs. They ordered an x-ray, and it turned out, when I took my fall I had fractured my hip. The physical and occupational therapists did outstanding work—I felt stronger every day. My family is overjoyed. Not only am I feeling much better, but the staff here was very open—communicating and sharing their plans with me and my family. I’m so pleased with the care I’ve received at Wichita Center. The short-term rehab was such a success, I’ve decided to stay here…for long-term care. Wichita Center is my new home!

Carolyn Konig

Former Patient at Warren Center

I could barely get around, my legs were so weak, and I had trouble keeping my balance. My condition left me frustrated and befuddled—I didn’t know what to do about it. I felt helpless. But when I went to Warren Center, help arrived. The team there is excellent. They are professional, knowledgeable and—important to me—they have a sense of humor. I enjoyed being around them. The therapists had a real insight into what needed to be done to improve my flexibility and balance. I can’t name all the people at Warren Center who helped me—it’s just too many—but as a team they gave me a feeling of personal and physical growth. I’m so happy that I chose Warren Center for my rehab.

Casey Corrow

Former Patient at Warren Center

I have cirrhosis of the liver, I’m bipolar, and I have brain disease. I was having trouble with my balance—physically and mentally. I was so unsteady, I couldn’t do the simplest things. I needed serious help. Thanks to Warren Center, I got it. The team designed a plan that addressed both my physical and mental issues. The therapists, nurses, and recreation department all worked together to get me back on track. The Warren Center team helped me get my balance back. My confidence and strength were growing. I was there for little over a month, and in that time they taught me how to take care of myself again so I could go home!

Catherine Walsh

Former Patient at Delmar Center

I had an iron deficiency and infections in my legs. I was very weak and struggled with anxiety. Then I got Covid-19 and recovery from that made it even worse. I knew I couldn’t care for myself, but the notion of leaving home for rehab was frightening. When I was admitted to Delmar Center, I discovered how important rehab was. The clinical team is very strong there, and they made me stronger. The social workers were thoughtful and compassionate, and they helped me overcome my anxiety. It became clear I needed a new place to call home, and once my wounds were healed, they found me just the place: Albany Center for Independent Living. I’m very excited about the new possibilities of my new surroundings—all thanks to the amazing team at Delmar Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing.

Charles Cazeau

Patient at Brooklyn Center

I had a stroke, but after going to the hospital I thought I was ok to go back to my assisted living facility. I was wrong. I was there for just a day when I took a serious fall. I couldn’t stand on my own, and it became clear that I would have to go to a rehab facility. I was reluctant at first, but when I got there—Brooklyn Center—I was impressed. I expected a dark, depressing place, but this was like a five-star hotel. Bright spaces, great food, comfortable accommodations…not to mention the therapists. Today, I move more freely than I have for many years. The Brooklyn Center team—the whole experience—not only rehabilitated me, they made me feel ten years younger. Looking for the fountain of youth? It’s right in the middle of Brooklyn!

Cheryl Blair

Former patient at Slate Valley Center

It was really ironic: I tripped over my walker…and broke my leg! The hospital down in Albany put me back together, cutting out some ligaments, scraping out some arthritis, and inserting two rods in my ankle. After all that, I didn’t think I’d ever walk again. When the time came to leave, I met with this very nice young lady, a liaison for several local rehab facilities. She was on top of things, knew my case and knew exactly what I needed. But I also knew exactly what I wanted! I had been to Slate Valley Center before—they had taken care of my mom—and I loved them over there. I said if I don’t go to Slate Valley, I want to go home. The liaison did great work; she got me in. It was like a homecoming. Everyone was so friendly. And the therapists are so good! I went to school with one of them—his name is Richard. That’s one of the things I love about Slate Valley Center: it’s part of the community. The other thing I love is that they worked so hard to make sure I could walk again. I might have given up on myself, but they never gave up on me!

Chris

Patient at Topeka Center

A serious accident at work left me in very bad shape. I had multiple wounds to my upper body and I had undergone an operation to amputate my left leg at the knee. Complicating the whole situation even more, I needed dialysis three times a week. When I left the hospital, I needed hospital-quality rehab. Topeka Center came through in spectacular fashion. As soon as I arrived, the medical team here discussed my case with my doctor and the hospital. They designed a medical and rehab plan personalized for me. Aside from the great care I’m getting, I love the people at Topeka Center. I look forward to participating in therapy, socializing with residents, and creating positive rapport with the staff. I’ve been to skilled nursing and rehab facilities all over east Kansas, and, against medical advice, I left them all. And good thing: I’d come back to Topeka Center in a heartbeat!

Christine Valdivia

Former Patient at Topeka Center

I was tired all the time, with muscle spasms and difficulty moving. I have multiple sclerosis, diabetes and problems with my heart. And then I got COVID-19. I was anxious and depressed. It felt like I was going downhill…until I was admitted to Topeka Center. The team there was warm and welcoming. The medical staff and therapy team put together a plan designed to help me get around on my own again. Within a few weeks I was feeling the difference—stronger and healthier. But it wasn’t just a physical improvement. They got me involved in activities, and I was feeling better emotionally, as well. After six weeks, I was ready to return to my apartment in an Independent Living facility, and the social workers at Topeka Center helped me with the transition. The entire team worked together to get me home and back to my life!

Christopher Cox

Former Patient at Topeka Center

A series of medical complications—all connected—have made life difficult for me. I have diabetes and, because of renal failure, I need dialysis. Some time ago I had my right leg amputated below the knee. After recovering from that, I needed the same done to my left leg. I was weak, in pain, and in need of help. Being admitted to Topeka Center was the best thing that could have happened to me. The therapists helped me get stronger, while the medical staff developed a pain management plan for me. Everyone at Topeka Center is totally professional, patient and compassionate. They taught me how to move around in my wheelchair and perform daily tasks. They even designed a home exercise program for me. And I am back home with my family, thanks to the Topeka Center team.

Clydette Johnson

Former Patient at Deptford Center

At home I was falling all the time, hurting myself. I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t even stand up on my own. I couldn’t go on living like that. Something had to change. And it did, as soon as I was admitted to Deptford Center. They welcomed me with open arms, and within 24 hours the therapy department had put together a rehabilitation plan specifically designed for me. The therapists themselves were wonderful—encouraging me and giving me the confidence to get better and stronger. You know, the doctors told me I’d never walk again, but the Deptford Center team didn’t listen to the doctors. They got me back on my own two feet. I’m walking again, and it’s the greatest feeling in the world.

Colleen Hannon

Former Patient at Onondaga Center

I was in bad shape. I have multiple sclerosis, hypertension, and some issues with my brain. I have been on multiple drugs to deal with these problems, and I had taken a fall, which put me in the hospital. When I discharged, they recommended that I go to Onondaga Center for rehabilitation. What a great recommendation. The therapy team there is absolutely wonderful: it’s clear to me that they have a lot of experience, and after just a few days working with them, I began to feel stronger. It only took the Onondaga Center team one week to get me back home, living independently. I can’t thank them enough. Thank you Jenna. Thank you Matt. Thank you Megan. Thank you all!

Cynthia Litt

Former patient at Troy Center

"When I was admitted to the hospital, the diagnosis was very disturbing. I suffered from severe sepsis, high troponin levels, rhabdomyolysis, and acute renal failure. In short, my whole body—muscles, cardiovascular system and kidneys—was breaking down. The hospital did all they could, my condition was stable, but when they discharged me to Troy Center for sub-acute care, I was still in pretty bad shape. My family worried that I would never fully recover, but the team at Troy Center assured them—and me—that I would. And they fulfilled that promise…and more. The medical staff, the physical and occupational therapists—everyone there—was great. It was clear to me that they cared deeply—not just about my health, but about me. We worked on my rehab every day, and their motivational skills matched their medical expertise. I’m living now in an assisted living facility, thanks to the Troy Center team. They brought me back to life!"

Darah Mason

Former Patient at Triboro Center

Many people don’t understand how debilitating arthritis can be. I feel the pain in all my joints, and not long ago my right knee completely locked up. I couldn’t bend it. It was impossible for me to cook a meal, do my laundry—do simple activities that most take for granted. I spent some time in the hospital, but it was when I was discharged and transferred to Triboro Center that I began to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The rehab team checked in with me every day, and—this is amazing—they even made my exercises enjoyable! My greatest joy, however, came when I walked out of the facility on my own, to the cheers of the staff. I’m back home now, cooking my own meals and doing my own laundry. What a great team they have at Triboro Center!

Dennis Maldonado

Former Resident at Williamsbridge Center

I became extremely sick—to the point where I couldn’t even walk. It was so bad that I became convinced I’d be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life. I felt myself slipping into depression. When I was discharged from the hospital into Williamsbridge Center, I was convinced I might never get home again. But the staff at the Center immediately put me at my ease. They introduced themselves, asked questions, and asked me my goals. When I said I want to walk again and go back home, they said, “Okay, let’s do it!” They were highly professional, but also so friendly. And great communicators. They put together an individualized plan based on my conditions, my needs and my goals. Then we got down to business. The therapy was amazing. The activities—the music and parties—were fantastic. The food was delicious. And before I knew it I was back on my feet. Williamsbridge Center is a great community that got me back into my community—back home!

Denys Surhayenko

Resident at Hope Center

When I was a teenager I got into a motorcycle accident. I have plates in my wrist and my knee, and from that point on, I figured that life would always be a miserable, painful thing. I got into drugs, thinking they would help me escape from the misery, but it just got worse. And then I got into selling drugs to feed my habit. I was living in this dark, dingy hole in the wall, living from needle to needle. My whole life was going to hell, and that’s exactly where I’d be right now if I hadn’t been arrested last summer. I was being held at Rikers Island when my court-appointed lawyer told me I was being given a choice: head Upstate to prison or go into a program and get clean. So, of course, I said I’d go into the program, and in my mind I’m telling myself: go there for a week, get some money together, then run. That was nine months ago. I came to Hope Center, met a couple of people there, and, guess what, I’m still here. I just thought it was going to be some terrible program with all these rules and stuff, but it was actually really awesome. Hope Center sent me back to school, and I just graduated college. They reconnected me with my family after six years. And they showed me that my life doesn’t have to be so miserable. In fact, life can be pretty wonderful. I’m clean…

Derick Rawlins

Patient at Brooklyn Center

I took a bad fall and fractured my left hip. The pain was excruciating and I could hardly move. I had surgery to repair the hip, but that was just the beginning. It was going to take some time to recover and rehab, which meant I had to choose a facility with care. I couldn’t have made a better choice: Brooklyn Center. The staff here is wonderful—they treat me like family. The therapists were professional and compassionate; they got me moving within 24 hours of my admission. The kitchen did an amazing job personalizing my meals, and the activities were fun, lifting my spirits. I’m back on my feet, and I’ll be headed back home soon. But Brooklyn Center is an amazing place. The rooms and outdoor spaces are unbelievable. I call it Brooklyn Resorts Center!

Dianne Hayden

Former Patient at Delmar Center

I was in terrible shape. I had been diagnosed with heart failure and was also struggling with wounds that just wouldn’t heal. When I was discharged and transferred to Delmar Center, I required a mechanical lift for all transfers. I felt helpless and hopeless. My mood began to change as soon as I met the team at Delmar Center. At first, I relied on them completely—and they were there for me 24/7. And just as important as their medical and therapeutic excellence, they also had a positive attitude, which rubbed off on me. When I arrived at Delmar Center, I was concerned that I would have to move into long-term care. But the team wouldn’t let that happen. I can now walk on my own with a walker and I’m completely independent. I returned home to my family just in time for Christmas! A great gift!

Dianne Meskill

Patient at Schenectady Center

I had taken a bad fall and injured my ankle, and the first skilled nursing facility that I went to for therapy left me frustrated. They were no help at all. I was beginning to think I’d never get better. When I was admitted to Schenectady Center, I knew right away that this place was different. The staff went above and beyond to help me. The therapists exceeded all my expectations. They were caring, compassionate and professional, and it wasn’t long before I started getting my strength back. I’m so grateful to the Schenectady Center team. From the liaison who smoothed my admission to the entire staff, they were all there for me. I’m confident now that I’ll soon be back home and on my own, stronger than ever!

Don Krom

Receptionist and Resident at Troy Center

I started out at Troy Center working in the kitchen. One afternoon I was helping to prepare dinner, chopping vegetables, when I felt some discomfort—I thought it was indigestion, but after some Rolaids, and a half hour passed, I finally went to the Assistant Director of Nursing, and told that her something wasn’t right. Long story short, I was having a heart attack. I went from cooking dinner at Troy Center to being served dinner at Troy Center. I’ve seen the facility from both sides—six weeks of intensive therapy, and three months to complete recovery and a return to work at Troy Center; the second time around as the front desk receptionist. The most astounding thing about the place is the team work. I see that working here. I experienced it rehabbing here. I guess you could say I was in the right place at the right time. Troy Center literally saved my life. I am a success story—one of many. There are a lot of people here that I owe my life to. The whole team. It’s not just words, it’s absolutely true: together, we are Centers Strong. I’m living proof of that.

Former Patient at Onondaga Center

I was weak and confused. I had a very difficult time getting around. It was a combination of my diabetes and the onset of dementia. I was in desperate need of help—and I got it at Onondaga Center. The whole team was wonderful. Not only were they professional, they were very compassionate. Day by day, the therapists helped me to improve my strength, balance, and my ability to get around. After just two weeks, I was feeling much better—physically and mentally. The rehab team at Onondaga Center is the reason I was able to go back home. I can’t think of a better compliment!

Donnie Jacques

Former Patient at Wichita Center

"After my stroke, I was diagnosed with hemiplegia—a medical term for paralysis of one side of my body. I was basically only half there physically, the muscles on that side ceasing to function properly. By the time I got to Wichita Center, I was in very bad shape. I had taken several falls, hitting my head. I was black and blue all over. The staff at Wichita Center was so kind, caring and helpful. They also treated me with respect, as an individual, which is very important. They all worked together—the therapists, nurses, dietitians, everyone—to build up my confidence, my health and my strength. The physical and occupational therapists pushed me hard, but never too hard. They knew my limits and were patient with me. The Wichita Center team was very impressive, and my condition improved 100%. They made me whole again! "

Doris Armstrong

Former Patient at Carthage Center

The doctors told me I had congestive heart failure. It made me very weak, and after I took several bad falls, it was clear I needed rehab. I didn’t know what to expect, but I knew I needed a lot of help. That’s exactly what I got at Carthage Center. I love the therapy team. I had to work hard, but they worked just as hard as I did. They were determined to help me get stronger. And they did even more: They taught me how to manage my condition and to improve my quality of life. Thanks to the Carthage Center team, I’m back home with my husband now. I couldn’t be happier…or more grateful!

Former Patient at Washington Center

I am in the early stages of dementia, and when I broke my foot and had to go to the hospital, I was both in pain and in an increased state of confusion. I spent six weeks in the hospital and then I was admitted to Washington Center. If anything, I was more confused than ever. I had difficulty walking, no strength, endurance or balance. I felt like everything was broken. But the Washington Center team was wonderful—patient, understanding and professional. I actually enjoyed the therapy! The stronger I got, the less confused I was. The team repaired my broken bones and my broken spirit. I’m back home now, living with my son. I’ll definitely recommend Washington Center to anyone in need of rehab!

Edna Preston

Former Patient at Wichita Center

I broke both my femur and patella bones. It was so terrible, I don’t even like to think about it. Aside from the injury itself, the worst thing about it was that I knew that, during my rehabilitation, I would have to be away from my family. But the team at Wichita Center was a godsend. Everyone, from the nurses to the therapists, from the housekeeping staff to the kitchen crew, were absolute angels. Not only did they help me to heal and get stronger, they made me feel special and loved. My bones are back in place, I’m back on my feet, and best of all I’m back with my family. But now I miss my other family—the wonderful people at Wichita Center!

Eleanor Duell

Resident at Glens Falls Center

I was having a hard time at home, bedridden for over a month by illness. When I tried to get back on my feet, my body just wouldn’t cooperate. After several falls, which caused some bad bruising, my doctor said I should get into a rehab facility. He recommended Glens Falls Center. The Center was just what the doctor ordered! Everyone was lovely, but the therapists were particularly helpful. They created a plan specifically for me, and it wasn’t long before I felt my legs and arms—my entire body—getting stronger. There is much more to the rehab than exercise. The food and activities are both part of the program. But it’s also the way you’re treated. Everyone at Glens Falls Center encouraged me. They really do care about me. And I care about them!

Formert Patient at Warren Center

"I broke my leg and my ankle. Add that to the fact that I already had chronic kidney disease…it was all just too much for me. I could barely function on my own and I was anxious all the time. I was depressed. All of that turned around for me because of the rehab staff at Warren Center. I got so much more out of this than I ever thought I would. I can do things for myself now that I couldn't even do before my injury. All of my therapists were professional and confident. They motivated me to do my very best every single day. I am so happy I can go home, but will definitely miss the people that I met there and all of the wonderful care that I received at Warren Center."

Former Patient at Triboro Center

I fell out of bed and broke my right arm. The pain was excruciating. St. Barnabas Hospital repaired the bone, but I was still in pain. I couldn’t dress myself and I was afraid to stand up on my own. I was worried that I’d lose my balance and take another fall. Thankfully, I was discharged to Triboro Center for my rehab. The medical staff and the therapists—the whole team—recognized that it wasn’t just about a broken bone. They treated the whole me, managing my pain and my fears. The pain is gone now as is my fear. The Triboro Center team built up my strength and my confidence. My goal was to get back to how I was before I took the fall. But they did more than that. Because I feel stronger and healthier than ever!

Patient at Martine Center

I have diabetes, and as my condition worsened I had to have half of my leg amputated. My situation is complicated by my asthma. To make matters even worse, I’m from Spain, and I don’t speak a word of English. How would I ever be able to rehab if I couldn’t understand my therapists? Answer: Martine Center. The facility has Spanish-speaking staff, and they were always there to help take care of me. I don’t need to speak English to realize that the therapists at Martine Center are amazing. I could feel myself getting stronger every day. And, by the way, my room is beautiful and contemporary. I’ll have my prosthetics soon, which means I’ll be able to walk on my own.

My condition was bad and getting worse. I had blood clots in my legs; there was swelling, and it was extremely painful. I couldn’t function on my own. I needed help and fast—before my situation deteriorated even more. Buffalo Center answered the call. When I first came to the Center I was bedridden, but the therapists and nurses worked wonders. Occasionally I got frustrated, but they never lost patience with me. They encouraged me and always treated me with respect. It wasn’t just the therapists, though.

I was unsteady on my feet and fell three times. Not only did I suffer injuries, I was frightened as well. What if I could never walk again? I was worried and losing sleep over it.

The staff made me feel comfortable right away, as I was greeted with a welcome bag full of goodies. Not only that, I was hungry, and they offered me something to eat. The rehab and recreation teams are just great—real gems! And the residents are wonderful, too.

Gertrude Ferrara

Former Patient at Buffalo Center

"My knee was in such bad shape I had to be hospitalized. The technical term for it is knee osteoarthritis—bone rubbing against bone. What it meant for me was severe pain. I could barely move. My doctor said there’s no cure, but it can be treated. That’s how I ended up at Buffalo Center. I had heard great things about their therapists, and everything I had heard turned out to be true. The nurses are wonderful, and I was very impressed by each of them. The therapists are exceptional, and are dedicated to their work. Sometimes I wonder how they kept me going, but they did. Thank you to everyone for working so hard to get me home. Because of the Buffalo Center team, I can get around on my own—do my own laundry and cook my own meals. I love you all."

Gina

Former Patient at Williamsbridge Center

I had a hip replacement, and the surprising thing to me was how depressed it made me. Being immobilized like that, unable to get around on my own—it set me back physically and mentally. Checking into Williamsbridge Center turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Everyone there was so kind to me—and respectful. They recognized immediately that not only did my hip need rehabbing, but so did my emotional state. The therapy was excellent. The therapists pushed me hard, which was exactly what I needed. Even my family noticed the change—they were happy that I was I was happy. The key to me is that they treated me holistically. Of course the healthcare and therapy were great, but so were the activities, the accommodations, and the food. My anxiety and depression just melted away. When I left, I was stronger than ever, but I had grown to love the Williamsbridge Center team. It had become my second family.

Glenn Slingluff

Patient at Deptford Center

"I needed multiple surgeries and by the time it was all over I was in pretty bad shape—I couldn’t even walk. When I was discharged from the hospital, I was seriously depressed. It was night when I was transferred to Deptford Center, and the darkness outside matched my mood. I felt like I was in a pit of despair. The night shift at Deptford Center was so caring, considerate and welcoming, I started to feel better right away. And once I went to work with the physical and occupational therapists, my physical condition began to improve as well. They pushed me hard, which was good, and encouraged me as well. I came to Deptford Center in a wheelchair, but I’m back on my own two feet now, and when I go I’ll walk out on my own. I’ll be taking some great memories with me—all the fun activities and the new friends I’ve made. In a word, the place is amazing!"

Resident at Topeka Center

"My diabetes had worsened, and the doctors said I had to have my leg amputated. After the surgery, I was still in bad health, and I had to decide where to go to recover. My family did some research, and we decided on Topeka Center. It turned out to be a great choice. What I love about the place is, not only did they nurse me back to health and create a personalized rehab plan for me, they also taught me a lot. It was a true learning experience as they taught me how to live—and live well—on one leg. I am definitely stronger and healthier now than when I went into the hospital. The team at Topeka Center really cared for and about me. One of the therapists always made me coffee. Sometimes it’s the small things that make a big difference."

"I was really scared. Both of my legs were failing, and the blood flow to them had stopped. I was beside myself. I couldn’t sleep and I couldn’t eat. I lost both legs. Would I have to spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair? Thank goodness for Bannister Center! The entire team assessed my situation, and crafted a plan specifically for me. The therapists really motivated me. One of them—Heidi—looked me in the eye and said: “Hebert, you’re going to walk again.” And she was right! With the help of prosthetic legs and a walker, I’m walking again. And eating and sleeping. I love Bannister Center. They have wonderful activities and programs, and the people are like family to me. They’re the best!"

Former Patient at Brooklyn Center

I’ve lived in Brooklyn most of my life, and one of the things I love about it is that it’s a great place to walk.

My broken hip threatened to break my spirit. Thankfully, I chose Brooklyn Center for my recovery and rehab. Everyone there, from the Administrator to the housekeeping staff, is wonderful—all of them are very nice people. At the top of the list is the physical therapy department: It’s absolutely excellent.

I was not feeling well at all. I was dizzy and unable to keep my balance. I was falling a lot and because of that, injuring myself. My doctor said I had to go into rehab before I got seriously hurt. That’s how I ended up at Topeka Center, which turned out to be the best place for me. The team made me feel welcome right away, and the therapy, which started within one day of my arrival was excellent. I miss being with my family, but the staff was like family, somebody always stopping by to chat. I like meeting new people and enjoyed talking to the other residents, as well. I’ve improved 100%. No more falls and I’ve got my balance back. That’s what I’d say about Topeka Center: They put my life back in balance.

James Cummings

Former Patient at Schenectady Center

"I’ve always been very independent. I like to go to the supermarket, take a drive—do things on my own without any help. And I wanted to take a trip to Arizona. But I’m 86, and when I took a fall and fractured my hip, I had to put my Arizona dreams on hold. The hip surgery was followed by renal failure…and then I got COVID-19. The hospital recommended that I seek post-acute rehab after hospitalization, but I was extremely reluctant to go into therapy. A Hospital Liaison—she was very kind and patient—together with my son convinced me to go to Schenectady Center…and I’m so glad they did. The therapists at Schenectady worked with me daily, and they were great. They gave me my independence back. After a few short weeks, I knew I would be discharged. Next stop: Arizona!"

Former Patient at Glens Falls Center

I was really anxious and depressed—so much so, it affected me physically. I couldn’t sleep. I lost my appetite. I was so tired. I was experiencing aches and pains all over my body and couldn’t get around. My doctor said I needed to go to a rehab facility, and getting admitted to Glens Falls Center proved to be just what the doctor ordered. They are all so nice there, and they addressed all my issues—physical and emotional. The activities and accommodations at Glens Falls Center are great, and both contributed to my successful rehab. I spent less than a month at Glens Falls Center, but it was one of the most productive months in my life. I’m much stronger now, I sleep better and I can get around on my own.

Jesus Soto

Resident at Bronx Center

I’ve worked my whole life in construction. It’s so important for me to take care of my family. But I was on a worksite less than a year ago when I collapsed. I had a stroke, and the doctor told me I almost died. They brought me to Bronx Center. I was still in terrible shape. I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t stand up. I couldn’t even eat on my own. This was the absolute lowest point in my life. I was always the man of the house who took care of his family, and here I was unable to take care of myself. It would have been easy to feel sorry for myself, but the therapists and nurses and social workers—everyone at Bronx Center— wouldn’t let me. Not only are they really good at what they do, they’re really good just at being supportive and compassionate. Slowly but surely, they brought me back—every step a success. They’re helping me to regain what I’ve lost. How? By showing me just how strong I am. Strong enough to get better, to one day walk out of Bronx Center with no walker, no crutches, no nothing. Strong enough to take care of my family.

John Armstrong

Former Patient at Carthage Center

There are two things I value in life above all else: my family and my independence. But last year, my whole life turned upside down. I was on my motorcycle when a car cut me off. I swerved, but too late. I was in bad shape—I can’t tell you how many bones I broke. The hospital patched me up, but I was in no condition to go home. I felt like the accident had cost me both my independence and my time with my family. But the moment I was wheeled into Carthage Center for my recovery, things started to look up. They were so welcoming and encouraging. The next day my physical therapy started, and I told my therapist I wouldn’t stop until I was back home, and he said neither would he! My physical and occupational therapists were both terrific. But the entire Carthage Center team was on my side, rooting for me. And they did it: got me back on my feet and back home. I’ve got my independence back and I’m home with my family again!

John Bush

Former patient at Ellicott Center

"I was only 40 years old and I had lost control of my life. My obesity had become a monster. I weighed 650 pounds with no hope of getting my life back. I had been a truck driver, but work was out of the question. I couldn’t even walk—or roll over in bed. I suffered from a variety of chronic conditions, including hyperlipidemia, peripheral vascular disease, and chronic venous disease. I was determined to turn my life around. But, clearly, I could not do it on my own. I needed help—and a lot of it! And I found it at Ellicott Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing. A team of physical and occupational therapists, nutritionists, nurses and social workers designed an intensive program of exercise, therapy and prescribed meal plans customized to my life and needs. They are so knowledgeable, enthusiastic and passionate about their work—and their optimism rubbed off on me. They made me believe I could get better! They helped me lose over 100 pounds and counting, and I’m now able to use a walker and even climb stairs. I’m thrilled to be back home. My goal is to continue losing weight, lose the walker, and one day go back to work. My thanks go out to the team at Ellicott Center. They were—and are—my inspiration!"

"I’ve always been an easy-going guy, accepting whatever life brings. But after my accident, when I couldn’t walk and needed an artificial shoulder, I have to admit I got pretty low. I wondered if I’d ever be able to enjoy life again. Checking into Carthage Center gave me new hope. They are so kind, compassionate and professional here. The therapists and the nurses are very patient and they understood my goals. Everyone here has played an important role in making me stronger. And as for enjoying life: the food here is great and so are the activities. I played virtual bingo with a Buffalo Sabres player hosting the game and I won a blanket! I’m walking again and may even be headed home soon. Thanks to the team at Carthage Center, life is good again!"

Jorge Andino Gomez

Patient at Northern Manor

"Talking with family and friends has always been one of my greatest pleasures. But then I had the stroke, which robbed me of that singular joy. It took away my ability to speak; now I have aphasia—which means I have trouble speaking, but I can understand what people say. The Northern Manor team made me a promise, if I worked hard, they ‘d work hard, too, to help me get my powers of speech back. Right away, the Recreation department set me up on Facetime, so I could see and communicate with my family. And the rehab team has been fantastic—cool and very supportive. My family is really happy to see how strong I’m getting. Soon I’ll be receiving a device to help me speak. I can’t wait. I’ll be able to head home and start talking again. The first thing I’ll say is: Thank you, Northern Manor."

I was very weak and in bad shape. There was a problem with my muscles, and to make matters worse I have an abnormal heart rhythm. I felt like I was getting weaker by the day—unable to walk more than a few steps without help. I’m so grateful to the team at Glens Falls Center. Everybody there was very supportive and gave me encouragement every day. The rehab staff and the therapy program they designed for me were excellent. And if I had any questions, they were always there to give me answers I spent less than two months at Glens Falls Center and I am much stronger. I’m back home, I can walk and even get up the stairs on my own! I would certainly recommend Glens Falls Center to any family or friends who need to rehab from injury, illness or surgery.

Judy Rushford

Resident at Essex Center

Back in ‘95 I got into a car accident. A drunk driver veered into my lane and hit me head-on. My son Jason, 17, was killed, and I had a broken back, broken leg, broken arm and a broken heart. I was in the hospital for a year; the doctors put me back together with titanium hardware. By the time I was released from the hospital, headed to Essex Center for my rehab, I had lost one leg and was paralyzed from the waist down. I have to admit, at first, I was a terrible patient. It’s not that I didn’t like my therapist; I just didn’t like anyone. I believe I had what they call survivor’s guilt. I wished I had been killed and my son had lived. The fact is, my therapists have been amazing. From day one, they understood that my rehab was as much about my mental state as it was about my physical condition. That I had to want to get better before I ever would get better. And believe me, they were relentless. I can’t remember the exact moment… Maybe it was when they invited my daughter to come into the facility to celebrate her birthday. Or the time one of the therapists challenged me to a game of chess and I felt a bit of the old competitive fire. Or it could just be that I realized I really liked the place. Now, Essex Center is my home, and I fully expect to…

Former Patient at Buffalo Center

I have COPD and earlier this year it got really bad. I was coughing and wheezing—I could hardly breathe. I couldn’t do the simplest things—like getting dressed—without help. Thank goodness they had a bed for me at Buffalo Center. The team there is really great. The nurses monitored my medication and general condition, while the therapists concentrated on improving my physical abilities. And by the way, the food was really good, too! There’s no cure for COPD, but the team at Buffalo Center got it under control, and within a month I was back home again, feeling stronger. I’m on my own and independent!

I had been in the hospital for surgery on my ankle, and it turned out to be much more of an ordeal than I had thought I would be. By the time I was discharged and transferred to Glens Falls Center to rehab, I was so weak I could hardly get out of bed. The staff was very welcoming, and the therapists immediately designed a program to rebuild my strength from the ground up. It was a comprehensive plan, including therapy, medical care, diet and recreation. And it worked great! A month after I was admitted, I was back on my feet and on my way home. Thanks to the team at Glens Falls Center, I have muscles now where I never had them before!

Ladette Cross

Former Patient at Glens Falls Center

I had taken a series of bad falls and to make matters worse, I had suffered wounds on my right hand and knee. The wounds had begun to swell—my doctor said I had cellulitis. Instead of sending me to a hospital—a place I didn't want to go—the doctor called the Centers Community Liaison, who had me admitted to Glens Falls Center directly from home. The team there was very sympathetic to my situation—and very knowledgeable. First, they treated my wounds, cleaning the area, applying a cool compress, and covering it. What a wonderful bedside manner! While my wounds were healing I worked with the therapy team and they focused on strengthening my legs, standing balance and walking. The wounds are healed, and I’m walking without fear of falling. I’m happy to be independent and back home again, even if I do miss the care and compassion of the Glens Falls Center team.

Lawrence Cannone

Resident at Kingston Center

I know you’re not supposed to smoke in bed, and I never would—in fact, I don’t smoke—but the person living in the apartment below mine does…and did. Which is why I woke up in the middle of the night to a loud banging on the door, my apartment filled with smoke. The place was on fire, and I was lucky to get out alive. Alive, but not well. I had a killer headache, I was dizzy, my heart was racing and I could hardly breathe. Then I started vomiting. By the time the ambulance got me to the hospital, I had suffered a seizure and then lost consciousness. It turns out that I had actually inhaled a large amount of cyanide gas. They put me on a respirator in the ICU. After two weeks in the hospital, they were ready to release me, but until I fully recovered I couldn’t work and I had no place to go. My apartment was obviously out of the question. I panicked. Was I going to be homeless? Kingston Center came to the rescue. I’ve been here for eleven months now, and they’ve taken care of everything I need—with professionalism and compassion. Their Respiratory Management team has been superb, dealing with all my medical issues. But even more than that, I haven’t had to worry about where I’m going to live, what food I’m going to eat or what clothes I’m going to wear. The fire messed my life up. Kingston Center put it…

Leatrice Henriquez

Former Patient at Brooklyn Center

I had what the doctors at the hospital called comorbidities. In other words, multiple medical issues—open wounds, anemia, kidney failure and gastrointestinal bleeding. Needless to say, I was a complicated case, but the hospital said it was time to go to rehab. My husband did some research and chose Brooklyn Center. What a beautiful facility! All the rehab equipment is state-of-the-art, and everything is so contemporary and comfortable. But even more important, the staff was very caring and very professional. They went above and beyond to help me. My case might have been complicated, but their response was simple: do everything they could to make me better. I’m back home now, stronger than ever. I am forever grateful to my husband for choosing Brooklyn Center… and to the Brooklyn Center team for making me feel safe, secure and ultimately healthier and stronger.

Linda

Sister is a resident at Wichita Center

Ever since we were very young, my sister and I have always taken care of each other. We come from a very tight-knit family. When she got sick, I mean really sick, I got very worried. I made a promise to her and to myself. That I would get her the very best healthcare available anywhere in Kansas! The question was where? The answer was Wichita Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing. The staff was so friendly, helpful and respectful. And the rehab equipment was amazing! Really high-tech. My sister particularly benefitted from the Jintronix biofeedback system: it put no stress on her, but gave the therapists a chance to start her rehab program on day one. And she’s been improving ever since. I’m not worried about my sister anymore. She is getting better every day. And that’s all because of how much her family cared for her. Her second family that is: the fantastic team at Wichita Center!

Lionel Louis

Resident at Far Rockaway Center

It was absolutely terrifying. Even worse than the actual stroke itself. I lost my memory, and when you lose your memory, you lose everything. It’s as if the house I had lived in my whole life had burned to the ground, destroying all that I valued. My memories of my childhood and of raising my own children—wiped out. I was literally lost. I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t eat. And most distressing—I couldn’t remember. Coming to Far Rockaway Center was a turning point. The physical therapists showed me how to walk again. The speech therapists taught me how to eat again. And over the course of two years, the entire team rebuilt my memory. I had been lost, but I found myself at Far Rockaway Center. They pushed me hard, really hard, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ll never forget the first time I could wiggle my toes, swallow properly, and recall where I had come from. And one other thing is for sure: I will always remember the good people of Far Rockaway Center and the great work they do.

Lori Kelley

Former Patient at Onondaga Center

I am a very independent person. I want nothing more than to be home, taking care of myself and my pets. But when I took a fall and broke my hip, I needed hip replacement surgery. I was in a lot of pain and had a hard time getting around. Reluctantly, I had to go to a rehab facility. As hard as it was to give up my independence, Onondaga Center came through for me in every way. The therapy team is wonderful: they worked hard to help me get my strength back. I’ll admit, I was handful, complaining about my condition all the time, but they were always patient, thoughtful, and understanding. Thanks to the Onondaga Center team, after just three weeks I was discharged, stronger than ever. They took care of me. Now I’m back home, taking care of my pets!

Louis Salvio

Resident at Holliswood Center

Obesity is a terrible condition. I weighed over 700 pounds. I was in poor health and in dire straits, physically and mentally. I tried many different weight loss programs but to no avail. I finally hit rock bottom when, due to my excess weight, I lost my balance and fractured my leg. It turns out, breaking my leg may have been the best thing that could’ve happened to me. I went to Holliswood Center to rehab, and individually and as a whole, the team there lifts my spirits. They are friendly, make me laugh and show that they care. My therapists are incredible individuals, and I don’t know where I’d be without them. I love this Holliswood Center. The staff, the rooms and the food are all good. And after three months, I’ve lost over 200 pounds. What an amazing transformation!

Resident at Martine Center

I was in extreme pain. I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t even stand on my own. My doctor said I had to be admitted to a facility for rehab, and honestly, I dreaded it. I imagined a dark, depressing place. Then I came to Martine Center, and all my fears went away. The staff was wonderful and welcoming. The nursing staff was efficient and excellent. The physical and occupational therapists were spectacular—compassionate and encouraging. The recreation was fun, and the food was excellent. What more can I say—except to express my gratitude to the entire Martine Center team: for the laughter and friendship and for getting me back on my feet. I’m walking on my own now. It’s been a great experience all around!

Marcia Philips

Former Patient at Triboro Center

I have a serious problem with my weight. The medical term is morbidly obese. It sounds bad, and it is. My weight has definitely adversely affected my health: I have diabetes, anemia, high blood pressure, the list goes on. It got to the point where I couldn’t even walk. I thought my situation was hopeless, but the moment I arrived at Triboro Center, the staff gave me my hope back. Their enthusiasm was contagious. The rehab team is absolutely wonderful. They treated me so nicely, and I loved working with them. We built a rapport, and they built up my strength. It took some time—ten weeks to be exact—but they got me back on my feet and back home. I can’t thank the Triboro Center team enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Mario Simoni

Former Patient at New Paltz Center

I had been discharged from Vassar Medical Brothers Hospital following a stroke. But there was no way I could go back home. It was very hard for me: I had no muscle control. I couldn’t walk or even feed myself. I had been to many skilled nursing facilities before, and my rehab was unsuccessful at all of them. My family was getting discouraged, wondering if I’d ever get better. Being admitted to New Paltz Center changed all that. After three months of hard work with the physical, occupational and speech therapists, I was back on my feet. The whole New Paltz Center team is wonderful. They didn’t give up on me. I’m back home now, and I’ve even gone back to work in my tailor shop. I fix clothes; New Paltz Center fixed me! They’re so good, my family is working with the team to have another family member admitted.

Martin Serenkin

Resident at Richmond Center

You know that old song, Don’t Fence Me In? That’s the story of my life. I’ve always been an independent guy, doing my thing. When I was a kid I dreamed of being a cowboy, riding the range. I left home when I was 18, bought an unlimited monthly Greyhound bus pass and traveled around the country. I’ve been on my own ever since. I never married or had kids, because that’s the way I wanted it. No strings, doing what I wanted when I wanted. Seven years ago, in 2012, that all blew up. I developed what they called a Functional Neurological Disorder. Big words, but what it meant for me was total dysfunction. I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t even stand up. When I came to Richmond Center, I had to put my trust in them. Put myself in their hands. And the truth is, they were great. As soon I got there, one of the first things the social worker asked me was: “What are your goals?” “Independence,” I answered. No surprise there. But her answer was. “Excellent,” she said. “Let’s do it!” The Richmond team went to work. I’m not going to say it was easy, but nothing worth doing is. I did rigorous physical and occupational therapy, while the doctors and nurses looked after my health. And today, I live at Richmond Center, upstairs, on my own: Independent. So maybe I won’t ever get to be a cowboy, but that doesn’t mean I can’t go my…

Michael Weed

Resident at Kingston Center

"The truth is I was very scared. There was an invisible enemy—Covid-19—spreading across the country, and many of us were worried sick that it would get to us. I can only say that I am lucky to be here at Kingston Center. When the staff said that we would be quarantined, unable to accept visitors, I was quite upset. But the staff here was so understanding and they went above and beyond to help us deal with the situation. They even arranged to have my favorite chair moved into my room—a small gesture that meant so much. The team at Kingston Center is doing a spectacular job keeping us safe. I’m cared for here, I’m protected, and Kingston Center is Covid-19 free! "

Former patient at Carthage Center

"I had a second surgery on my hip, and I was beginning to wonder if it was a mistake. I could barely move. I couldn’t even put any weight on my legs. I just wanted to go home and hide. But my doctor said I needed to rehab and recommended Carthage Center. It’s the best advice I’ve ever gotten. From the moment I arrived, the staff made me feel right at home. I loved the food, the accommodations and the activities. But best of all was the therapy. I needed both occupational and physical therapy. I was amazed by how quickly they got me back on my feet, and how strong I felt. They worked magic. I’m back home now, on my own and independent. All I can say is, if you or someone you love needs to rehab from surgery, injury or illness…go to Carthage Center. They’re the best!"

Patient at Northern Manor

"Where to begin? I have diabetes, I had an infection in my left foot, had just gone through gall bladder surgery, and my knees were so weak, I could barely stand. I needed a lot of help! The team at Northern Manor met the challenge with flying colors. First thing, they made me comfortable, making certain that all my needs were met. The physical therapy was outstanding, and I looked forward to all the activities offered by the Recreation Department. Also, because of my condition, I had lost a great deal of weight. I’m Filipino, and they went out of their way to prepare Filipino food for me! I’ve gained weight, my muscles are stronger, and I have regular video chats with my daughter, thanks to the tablet they provided for me. The Northern Manor team gave me all the tender loving care I needed!"

Norbeto Toro

Former Patient at Rochester Center

I had been hospitalized with some serious complications from type 2 diabetes—at risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, and kidney failure. The hospital put me on medication to protect me, but when they discharged me I was extremely weak, unable to even dress or bathe on my own. Fortunately, I landed at Creekview Nursing and Rehab for my recovery. The physical and occupational therapists put a personalized rehab program in place for me, and together with the changes in my diet and activities, I was gradually able to take care of myself again. The team at Creekview gave me my independence back. I loved it. The way they took care of me was great. If not for them I’d still be stuck in bed. Now I’m going home!

Norman Holder

Resident at Northern Riverview

I had a debilitating stroke, and when it came time to leave the hospital, I couldn’t walk and I could barely talk. My niece did some research, and she heard very good things about the stroke rehab program at Northern Riverview. Her research proved to be spot-on. The staff was so friendly, and a social worker came to talk to me about my condition, my goals and what my time at the facility would be like. I want to give a special shout-out to the speech therapist, Lauren. What an angel! She made a great contribution to my successful recovery. Not only has my speech improved, but so too has my health and my attitude. I have no question that I’ll be walking again soon. My whole experience at Northern Riverview—from the therapists to the food—has been a positive one. If you need to rehab, go to Northern Riverview!

Former Patient at Slate Valley Center

It was just crazy, it happened out of the blue—no warning whatsoever. I was picking up my son, stepped out of my car, and crumpled to the pavement. Somehow, I had broken my ankle. And when I say broken, I mean shattered, as though my ankle was made of glass. I was in the OR at Glens Falls Hospital that afternoon, and the surgeon had to pick pieces of bone out of my leg. When I came out of surgery and realized what had happened, I was devastated. Stand up and walk? I thought: Never going to happen. But I couldn’t stay in the hospital forever, and chose a rehab facility at random: Slate Valley Center. It was the luckiest thing that ever happened to me. The physical and occupational therapists at Slate Valley Center are dynamite! I went into the place in the worst frame of mind possible—and, thanks to them, I walked out, on my own, in the best frame of mind. They turned my life around. My biggest problem now is how much I miss all my good friends at Slate Valley Center!

But I have gotten much better, thanks to the team at Glens Falls Center. The physical therapists gave me exercises that gradually strengthened my muscles, and the speech therapist helped me with my swallowing—and even made it easier for me to talk. They are good people at Glens Falls Center. I mean that they are good at their jobs and that they have good hearts. They helped alleviate my pain, and I have much more endurance—I can even walk up stairs. They met the challenge, and I’m back home now!

Former Patient at Washington Center

When I was discharged from the hospital, I had zero energy and I was getting weaker and weaker. It got to the point where I couldn’t even get out of bed. My doctor recommended that I get rehab at Washington Center—and it was just what the doctor ordered! The therapy team was terrific, and I started to feel stronger at the very first session. They knew exactly what I needed and they did amazing work. I walked out of Washington Center, back on my feet, in ten days! I have to add that the food is really good—better than what I have at home. So a big thanks to everyone at Washington Center—with a special shout-out to the therapists and the kitchen staff!

Resident at Topeka Center

I was awakened by a loud noise. When I looked around, I saw my son’s room was on fire, and he was trying to put it out. I told him to run, nothing is more important than you. I ran toward the back door, but tripped over my walker and couldn’t get up. I passed out. I woke up six weeks later in the Kansas University Burn Center. The pain was unbearable. I was having hallucinations. But the worst was still to come…when they told me my son had died. I couldn’t understand why God took his life and not mine. In February I was transferred to Select Hospital in Kansas City and stayed there for a month. Then I was moved to Topeka Center for my rehab. I still had unhealed burns on 30 percent of my body, and the pain—physical, emotional and mental—was excruciating. But the nurses and therapists—the entire staff—were so patient, loving and compassionate. They encouraged me, were there for me 24 hours a day. The Recreation Director came to my room every day and sang for me. She has a beautiful voice, and it brought tears to my eyes. My son’s death left a hole in my heart, but Topeka Center has healed me in so many ways. They have made life worth living.

Patty Gray

Former Patient at Rochester Center

I had a sudden severe stomach ache, followed by a fever. The pain was intense. I couldn’t eat and I could hardly breathe. I was hospitalized with acute pancreatitis and a viral infection. Once the symptoms were under control, I was discharged and admitted to Creekview Nursing & Rehab Center. The team there wasted no time. The physical, occupational and speech therapists immediately evaluated me, and, in their words found me to have “declined independence in functional mobility and self-care tasks.” In other words, I needed help—and they gave it to me! The therapists pushed me hard, but knew when to let me relax. The nurses and aides were always there to help me get comfortable. Within two weeks I had my strength back, and I walked out of Creekview on my own. I’m home, I’m walking, and I’m ready to dance—thanks to the great team.

Patient at Hammonton Center

I had blurred vision and nausea. It was an awful experience. I had been to Hammonton Center before for rehab, and the doctors, nurses and therapists—everyone there—has always come through for me, and this time was no different. They took care of me when I couldn’t take care of myself. I’m stronger now than I’ve been in a long time. I’ve got my balance back and I don’t have to worry about falling. I would recommend Hammonton Center to any of my friends or family who need rehab. I’m going home soon, but I’ll miss everyone here!"

My doctor said I had advanced cirrhosis of the liver and recommended I go to Buffalo Center for treatment. Honestly, I was afraid I’d never be able to go home again. But the Buffalo Center team—from the social workers to the nurses to the therapists—said that if I worked hard, they’d work just as hard to get me back home. And they came through! The physical and occupational therapy worked wonders. It took time and effort, but it was all worth it. I’m home and feeling stronger than I’ve felt in years!

Former Patient at Triboro Center

I had been laid up in a hospital bed for weeks, and when it was time for me to be discharged it was clear that I couldn’t be on my own. I barely had the strength to lift my head off a pillow, let alone stand up. If I tried, I’d likely lose my balance and fall. A liaison met with me and smoothed my transfer to Triboro Center, and that was my first step back into the community. The entire staff was there for me—making sure I took my meds on time and providing good, nutritional meals. And the physical and occupational therapists were outstanding. I feel healthier and stronger now than I have in a long time. I heartily recommend the Triboro Center team to anyone who is recovering from illness, injury or surgery. They are winners!

Ralph Didomenico

Resident at Cooperstown Center

First, there was anger. I had gone into the hospital to relieve the pressure on my spine. When I came out of the anesthesia, I thought I was dreaming, that I had no legs. But it was not a dream. I had legs, but no feeling in them. I was paralyzed. The doctors told me that I would probably never walk again. I was livid—at the surgeons and at the situation. They discharged me to Cooperstown Center, and I thought: They’re just sending me out to pasture, to live out my days in a wheelchair, with a blanket over my useless limbs and a television remote control in my hand. I would have no control whatsoever of my life. The folks at Cooperstown Center disabused me of that notion really quick. Within a day, their team of healthcare professionals—nurses, physical therapists and social workers—had met with me, assessed my situation and my needs, and put a plan in place. Their mission became my mission: get me back on my feet and walking again. At first, they needed a lift to get me out of bed, but Cooperstown Center has some remarkable high-tech rehab equipment that gave me a real lift. Sure, there were times when I was discouraged, but I always had plenty of cheerleaders—family members, church members, and a whole bunch of Cooperstown Center members. The thing about Cooperstown Center is that they are part of my community—and reaching out to my community was a vital part of my…

Patient at Concord Nursing & Rehabilitation Center

"I was very weak and in terrible pain. I could hardly move and I was confined to a wheelchair. It got so bad, I didn’t want to get out of bed. I was sad, angry and depressed about my condition. Coming to Concord Center turned out to be a blessing. The doctors and nurses met me at the door and welcomed me with open arms. It made me smile despite the pain. The very next day, the therapists got me moving. It was very hard at first, but each day it got a little easier. They did a marvelous job. Soon after, the activities department introduced me to a program of religious services, parties and arts and crafts. The entire Concord Center team slowly but surely made me feel better and stronger. The pain, sadness and anger are gone, and I’m walking again. Amen!"

I was suffering from respiratory failure, and in addition to my trouble breathing, I was extremely tired, my blood pressure was very low, and I was experiencing periods of confusion. The team at Wichita Center was fantastic. They created an action plan for me and had me in therapy within 24 hours of my arrival. I was struck not only by their professionalism, but by what good people they all are. They weren’t just doing a job, they really cared about me and getting me stronger. Thanks to the folks at Wichita Center, the oxygen is flowing smoothly through my lungs and into my bloodstream. Thanks for taking care of me, and giving me my breath back!

First, I had a stroke, which led to a fall, breaking my hip. I was almost completely helpless. I couldn’t put any weight on my legs and I needed assistance to do just about everything. I needed a lot of help—and got it at Carthage Center. The physical and occupational therapists were outstanding. They designed a rehab plan specifically for me—a plan that takes into account that I had recently suffered a stroke. It didn’t take long for me to feel my strength and endurance increasing. Three months after being admitted to Carthage Center, I’m back home again. The team there taught me how to live on my own again, not only with rehab, but they also helped me find resources in the community. They really want me to succeed!

Patient at Williamsbridge Center

"I’m lucky to be alive. I was in pretty bad shape. I was hit by a bus, and it broke both my legs. When I was discharged from the hospital I had to learn how to walk. I didn’t think it could get any worse. And then I got hit again—this time by Covid-19! I thank my lucky stars I chose Williamsbridge Center for my recovery and rehab. Because not only was it physically a challenge, it was emotionally difficult as well. We were in quarantine at the time, and I couldn’t get visits from my family. But the team here—the nurses and therapists—has become like a second family to me. They’re as warm and friendly as they are highly skilled at what they do. I’ve started walking again, and my wife can visit now. I overcame a runaway bus and a runaway virus, and I couldn’t have done it without the guidance, understanding and dedication of the great people at Williamsbridge Center."

The medical team treated the infection, and the physical and occupational therapists got me back on my feet. After just two months I was ready to return home.

They really know their stuff, and every day they helped me get a little stronger and to relearn how to remain steady on my feet. As great as the therapy department is, the same can be said of the entire Warren Center team. I’ve returned home and I haven’t had a single fall. I move around the house with confidence and a smile on my face. My family is overjoyed that they don’t have to worry about me anymore. Thank you to the entire team at Warren Center your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Roger Shields

Resident at Brooklyn Center

I gave up. Life got the best of me. I’m not sure people understand what can happen to you when you suffer a serious stroke. I lost control of my muscles and bodily functions. I couldn’t talk, and parts of my memory were gone. Lying in the hospital bed, the first time I saw my own son, I didn’t recognize him. And when I finally did realize who he was, I thought: what good am I to him? I’m just going to be a burden on him his entire life. I came to Brooklyn Center convinced that I was on the road to nowhere. But the staff there knew better. They pushed all the right buttons. Don’t you want to run with your son again? Play catch with him? That hit home. They convinced me that I’d never know what I was capable of until I tried. It wasn’t easy—physical therapy six days a week, as well as speech therapy and occupational therapy—but it was working. It turned out that Brooklyn Center wasn’t the road to nowhere. It was the road to recovery. And it wasn’t the end of the line, it was the beginning of a new one. When I left the hospital, the doctors said I might walk in three to five years…maybe. I’ve spent a year at Brooklyn Center, and I’m being discharged—walking out of here. First thing I’m going to do is put on a glove and play catch with my son.

Former Patient at Slate Valley Center

Covid-19 landed me in Glens Falls Hospital for 32 days, but on Easter Sunday, things were not looking good for me. I had been on a ventilator for 14 days, and they told me at that point I was unresponsive—so unresponsive, the medical providers feared the worst. They asked my family: If I was still unresponsive when they took me off the ventilator, should they intubate me again? Or just let me die peacefully? My poor wife, Ann—we’ve been married for 57 years—was scared to death. My whole family feared the worst. But miraculously, when they removed the ventilator, I started to breathe on my own. I had beaten Covid-19. I was on the road to recovery. But my journey back to health had just begun. The virus had ravaged my body, and I was badly in need of rehab. That’s where Slate Valley Center came in. The therapists there are terrific. In less than two weeks—10 days—they had me back home! All of them—both at the hospital and Slate Valley Center—are my heroes! Healthcare workers who are miracle workers.

But when I was transferred to Warren Center for rehab, I was pleased and surprised to learn that their goal was the same as mine: getting me back home to my wife and my life. Rehab can be a challenge, but the team at Warren Center is congenial and very good at what they do. I became friendly with all of them. It is the best place to go for rehab.

Getting admitted to Wichita Center was a godsend. Not only did the team design a program—specifically for me—to regain my balance and strength, they were all so kind and compassionate. I could tell that they really cared about me, and they were as pleased as I was when I started to improve. The Wichita Center team did more than help me walk again, they changed my whole outlook on life. They made me feel good and happy. If you’re looking for a place to rehab, go to Wichita Center.

It made me sad and I was a little frightened, because I was worried that I would be alone. I heard nice things about Deptford Center, so I chose to go there. The moment I walked in, I knew I had nothing to be afraid of. The people, the staff and the residents at the facility were so welcoming—friendly, warm and all smiles. Their positive attitude rubbed off on me. My favorite part of the day is when we come together for activities. Everyone is laughing and talking, and I feel right at home. Because that’s what Deptford Center is: my home. And the people there—from my roommate to the nurses to the Administrator—are all my family! "

Patient at Martine Center

I’ve always been an active guy, involved in sports from the time I was in high school. But all that activity finally caught up with me. My hip was shot, and needed to get surgery to replace it. I began to wonder if I’d ever walk again. The team at Martine Center, where I came for my rehab, made it clear that not only would I walk, but I’d be as active as I wanted to be. And let me tell you, the physical and occupational therapists came through for me with flying colors. More than the medical and therapy staffs, there’s a lot to love about Martine Center. I made fast friends with my roommate. The free Netflix is great. And the strawberry shortcake for dessert was spectacular. I’m back home, my hip is strong, and I’m totally independent. But I still dream about the shortcake!

Senny Josephs

Resident at Triboro Center

"I was in terrible condition. I couldn’t speak, I was on a feeding tube, ventilator, and a trach tube. I couldn’t even open my hands. When I came to Triboro Center I was confused and disoriented. I thought my situation was hopeless. But the staff at Triboro Center immediately set out to give me hope. Not only are they true professionals, great at their jobs, they are also wonderful people—so engaging. Everyone—the therapists, nurses, dietitian, housekeeping—checks on me every day. They made me comfortable. I couldn’t eat for two months, but now I can swallow again. My lungs are getting stronger, I can walk again, and, just as important, my mental state is much better. I’m a nurse and my husband is a doctor. I know all about healthcare, and I know that Triboro Center is the best!"

Sonia Richardson-Green

Patient at Beth Abraham Center

My health had deteriorated dramatically. I was almost completely helpless. My doctor said I should go into a rehab facility, but the truth is, I thought I would never recover. I could never be independent again. The Beth Abraham Center team showed me just how wrong I was. The moment I was admitted, the medical staff went to work, designing a plan to improve my health—physically and emotionally. The therapists, social workers, nutritionists and activities team all played important roles in my rehab. What impressed me was how encouraging they all were. They believed I would get better, and their optimism rubbed off on me. And they were right. I’m walking and moving again—90% better and I know now it’s just a matter of time before I’m 100% myself. Need to rehab? Go to Beth Abraham Center!

Steve

Son was a resident at Wichita Center

My son means the world to me, and when he had a stroke, my heart sank. He is so young! The hospital was great, they probably saved his life, but when he got out, he still had to learn how to walk and talk all over again. He had done that once when he was two years old, but this time he’d need a lot more help. That’s where Wichita Center came in. I can’t say enough about the therapists there. Professional. Highly skilled. Enthusiastic. All that and more. My son is a fighter, and they challenged him every day, every step of the way. They set realistic, reachable goals for him—all based on his individualized needs—and he fought like heck to reach them. One more thing I want to add. As his father, I always felt as though I was part of the team. The staff—from the receptionist to the therapists and the administrator—are all great communicators. They always shared with me, and with my son, their rehab plan for him. Now, I’d like to do a little communicating myself: Thank you Wichita Center for getting my son back on his feet, back home, and back to independent living!

Teresa Anzalone

Resident at Deptford Center

My Dad needed some help, he was having a hard time getting around, and I reached out to Deptford Center. I’d heard very good things about the place. That was on my mind, but I hadn’t gotten around to it yet. Then one morning I got up to feed my cat, Henry, went back to bed to lie down and Henry followed me. I think he sensed that something was up. I got up after about a half hour to call my Dad to check on him. He told me that he was fine, but I wasn’t feeling right. I asked my Dad to call the paramedics, and right at that moment I hit the floor. I had a mini-stroke. The doctors at the hospital kept me overnight for observation, said there was no permanent damage, and sent me home the next morning. That’s when things really started to go wrong. I had acute pancreatitis three times, and then I had pneumonia three times. I was falling apart. “My poor cat,” I thought. I’m going to drop dead one of these days, and there will be no one to witness it except for Henry. By this time my Dad’s condition had worsened and he was in Deptford Center. I called my social worker and arranged to join him. Now we’re together. The people here are so nice, and because of their great skills, I’m well on my way back to good health. They’re going to get me back home. I…

Teresa Mendoza

Former patient at Onondaga Center

"My health was going downhill. I suffered from Epilepsy and Parkinson’s Disease. I didn’t have any appetite, I was losing weight, and I had no energy at all. I had gone to a rehab facility, and after three months they gave up on me. They said there was nothing they could do. I would never get better. But I didn’t give up on myself. I transferred to Onondaga Center, and they didn’t give up on me either. The physical, occupational and speech therapists were all wonderful. I’ve experienced a lot of therapy at a lot of different places, and this was the first time I actually enjoyed it. Less than two months later, I was discharged to an assisted living facility, where I live now with a degree of independence. I can’t thank the team at Onondaga Center enough. They are the best!"

Theodore Mann

Former Patient at Slate Valley Center

The pass was a little high, and I had to jump to catch it. I knew as soon as I hit the ground what happened. I heard the pop in my left knee and felt the searing pain. The reason I knew right way was because a year before, the same exact thing had happened in my right knee. I had torn both my ACL and my MCL. Fortunately, I knew what I had to do. The first time it happened, I came to Slate Valley Center for outpatient rehab. The therapists worked wonders on my right knee. Now I asked them to do the same on my left. I’m only 16, but I’ve learned from my coaches: if you want to achieve excellence, you have to work hard. By that measure, the physical therapists at Slate Valley Center practice an extreme form of excellence! But I’m driven, and so are they—which is one reason I like them so much. I want to work hard. Don’t get me wrong. They’re fun and friendly, too—an awesome group of people, and all from around this area. The pain is gone, but I’ll always remember the great team at Slate Valley Center.

Theodore Verdi

Former patient at Oak Hill Center

"I’m 88 years old, and when I contracted the Covid-19 virus, it hit me like a truck. With the hospital’s help, I beat the virus, but it laid me low. Not only did it take my breath away, it also took away my strength. Everyone at the hospital told me to go to Oak Hill Center for my rehab—and it’s the best advice I’ve ever gotten. First thing I noticed was the positive attitude. It was clear that they enjoyed helping me. They made me feel better—not just physically, but emotionally as well. They often stopped by just to say hello and to see how I was feeling. Well, with the wonderful therapists on my side, implementing a plan designed specifically for me, I was feeling better every day. You often hear the phrase, “they nursed me back to health.” That’s exactly what they did at Oak Hill Center. I got my health back, and when I was discharged I felt stronger than ever. One more thing I got there: a new family—the Oak Hill Center team!"

Thomas “Tom” Geed

Resident at Albany Center

"I’ve been through a lot in my life. I spent three years in the U.S. Army and I’m a Vietnam War veteran. After the Army, I worked as a mail clerk for the U.S. Postal Service for 32 years. But far and away, the toughest time I’ve had in my 73 years came several years ago when I took a fall and fractured my hip. I needed surgery and then went into rehab. After my therapy was complete, I came to a hard realization: I could not live on my own any more. I chose to move into Albany Center for Independent Living. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. There’s a skilled nursing facility right next door if I ever need physical therapy again. The staff is kind and caring, always making sure that I’m comfortable and happy. And, as a voracious reader, I love that there’s a library right on site. Three delicious meals a day, good company, and great books: I’ve made myself right at home at Albany Center for Independent Living!"

Thomas Changa

Former patient at Schenectady Center

"It’s the simple things in life that I enjoy: doing chores around the house or catching a game or a movie on TV. But at the start of this year I was struck by a rare debilitating syndrome that was breaking down my muscle fiber. It became so bad, I couldn’t even sit up in my chair. I went to the hospital, but there wasn’t much they could do. They said I needed sub-acute rehabilitation. I met with a liaison who said there was a place for me at Schenectady Center. It was a stroke of luck. The team there—medical, therapy, nutrition, recreation—they all got together and formulated a personalized, holistic plan for me. And they were all there for me 110%. The physical and occupational therapists knew what they were doing, and my muscles were getting stronger every day. One month! That’s all it took for them to get me back to full strength. I’m forever grateful to the professionals at Schenectady Center. I’m back home, working in my garden by day, relaxing in front of my wide screen TV by night. Perfect!"

Thomas Lemanski

Former Patient at Onondaga Center

My diabetes had led to an infection in the bones of my legs, and I couldn’t put any weight on them. Consequently, I couldn’t walk and I was tired all the time. I was going downhill fast—until I was admitted to Onondaga Center. They immediately made me feel comfortable, and within 24 hours had created a health and rehab plan specifically designed for me. The therapists did a remarkable job teaching me how to get around without putting weight on my legs. The Onondaga Center team got me moving to the point where I could make the greatest move of all—going back home. Thank you!

Utate Gabino

Former Patient at Triboro Center

My health has been an area of great concern over the last few years. I have colon cancer and high blood pressure, and early this year I experienced respiratory failure. My strength, balance and endurance were all impaired. I could hardly move. But the one move I did make—going to Triboro Center—was the key to my recovery. The therapists are excellent. They designed a program of exercises for me that showed immediate results. And I have to add that not only are they great therapists, they are wonderful people! I am back home now with my family and I can function independently. But even though I’ve left Triboro Center, in a way the team is still with me. They created a home exercise plan, and it continues to help me get strong and stay strong!

Vincent Avril

Patient at Richmond Center

I had been in good shape and quite healthy, but one day in April I suddenly, out of the blue, started to feel so tired and weak, I could barely even take a shower. Over the next few days, I felt weaker and weaker. Finally, my family called for an ambulance. At the hospital I was diagnosed with Covid-19, and I spent the next four weeks fighting for my life. The doctor said I was lucky to be alive… and my lucky streak continued when I was admitted to Richmond Center. I needed a lot of medical attention, and the Richmond Center team gave it to me. The nurses, therapists and activities staff were so good to me! Even when they weren’t working with me, they checked in to see how I was doing. I had become so weak, but the Richmond Center team got me back on my feet. In the beginning, I had wondered if I’d ever go home again. But now I know I will. Richmond Center helped me beat Covid-19, and I’m feeling like my old, healthy self again!

Vincent Miller

Resident at Beth Abraham Center

I’ve led an active life, but time took its toll. Arthritis ravaged my knees. The cartilage had worn away, and both knees were literally bone-on-bone. I was in agony. My doctors recommended Simultaneous Bilateral Knee Replacement. After the surgery, I had to learn how to walk properly again. To that end, I checked into Beth Abraham Center in October, 2019. Three months have passed, and the results are amazing. Beth Abraham has been wonderfully accommodating, the environment clean and safe—the facility has been beautifully renovated—and the staff is very, very professional. I can’t say enough about the Physical Therapists: they are exemplary. I believe Divine Intervention brought me to Beth Abraham, but it was the team here that got me back on my feet and stronger than ever. I’m so grateful. If 5 stars is the top rating, Beth Abraham deserves a 7!

Virginia Potter

Resident at Northern Metropolitan

After a series of falls, I was admitted to the Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx. I was eager to get back home, but I was very weak and was transferred to Northern Metropolitan for recovery and rehab. After a month of working with the therapists, I learned, in consultation with my doctors and family, that the risks to me were too great to live independently. Sure, I was disappointed at first, but working with all the departments—Recreation, Therapy, Nursing and Dietary—I have slowly but surely reached my goals. I ‘m so happy here: this is my home now. I feel safe at Northern Metropolitan. My family loves to visit the staff, and I enjoy talking to the other residents. They must enjoy my company, too: last January I was elected President of the Resident Council!

Patients at Cooperstown Center

My Mom was experiencing dizzy spells, heart palpitations and shortness of breath. The hospital diagnosed atrial fibrillation and hypotension, and she was in immediate need of help managing her condition. I did some research and liked what I saw at Cooperstown Center. Within days of her admittance to Cooperstown Center, my Mom’s condition had noticeably improved. I was so impressed with the work the therapists and medical staff were doing, I asked about my Dad. He was living down in Florida, recovering from a recent car accident, with pins and screws in his ankle. I brought him up to Cooperstown Center. My Mom is happily managing her hypotension at home now, and my Dad is getting stronger every day at Cooperstown Center. And I couldn’t be more thankful for the excellent work the Center’s team has done.

Former Patient at Carthage Center

I have congestive heart failure, and it was getting worse. I could barely function—unable to even bathe or dress on my own. I wasn’t sure where to turn for help. Fortunately, I was referred to Carthage Center. The team there is wonderful. The therapists together with the medical staff put together a rehab program specifically designed for me. The kitchen and recreational teams provided vital support. They made a world of difference. After three weeks I was able to head back home. More than just helping me rehab, the Carthage Center team made sure to connect me with community services that would help me manage my condition. Going to Carthage Center was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

William “joey” Burress

Patient at Topeka Center

I was 24 years old when I was admitted to Topeka Center over a year ago. I was bedbound with stage 4 pressure wounds and was struggling with Major Depressive Disorder. I was seriously discouraged, unmotivated, and completely dependent on the staff. It was no way to live. The Topeka Center team was there for me in so many ways. I participated in physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy—all of which helped me set goals for my health and independence. I received counseling and psychiatric services, which was key to stabilizing my depression and overall mood. As my wounds improved, so did my outlook on life. I enjoyed talking with the staff and really looked forward to Topeka Center’s great activities. I trusted the therapists and nurses, and they dramatically transformed the quality of my life. The staff helped me get back on my feet, literally. They motivated me and encouraged me throughout the rehabilitation process. I have come so far and I am so thankful. I am wound free and completely independent. I am so excited by how far I have come. When I was first admitted, I never thought that I would have made this much progress. For the first time I am excited about my future and the possibilities it holds. Thank you, Topeka Center staff!

William Westedt

Former Patient at Delmar Center

I had a terrible foot infection, which, combined with my chronic lower back pain, made me immobile. My landlord came to my apartment and discovered how bad off I was. As I had been in the Navy, the Albany Stratton VA Medical Center took the initiative, and they knew exactly where I should go: Delmar Center. The wound care was immediate—and showed immediate results, my foot infection beginning to heal right away. At the same time, the physical and occupational therapists put together a plan to improve my back. The Delmar Center team has been dramatically successful in both healing and strengthening me. But they haven’t stopped there. I don’t want to lose my independence, and the social workers have arranged for me to transfer to the Albany Center for Independent Living, which is right next door. Thanks to Delmar Center, I’m ready to make new friends in my new home!

Resident at Hammonton Center

"I knew something was wrong with me: I had lost my appetite, I had shortness of breath and chest pains. Turns out I had Chronic Renal Failure—my kidney function had dropped to 20%. I was frightened. I couldn’t function on my own. I needed help. That’s where Hammonton Center came in. They were so reassuring, promised to take care of me. They said I had nothing to fear, and they were right. Whatever I needed—special diet, physical therapy, activities—they answered the call. I’ve been in and out of nursing facilities for several years, and the team at Hammonton Center is far and away the best. I feel much stronger—mentally, emotionally and physically. I feel so safe here!"

I like to be in Beth Abraham Center because the staff are very loving, caring, and nice; they treat me like family. Especially the recreation department.

This is my home.

Zellee Hubbard Franklin

Resident at Northern Center

I died. That’s what the doctors told me. Here’s what happened. I had dinner with my family, I watched a little television, then I went to bed. A night like any other night. The only thing that was different was that the following morning, I didn’t wake up. My husband called 911. When I woke up in the hospital, I had a trach. They said I had stopped breathing. The hospital saved my life, but it didn’t seem like I had much of a life. I felt like a burden. Northern Manor took me in and changed that feeling. They brought me back to myself. The staff was so attentive to my needs—both medical and personal. Without their kindness and care and encouragement, I doubt I would be here today. It would have been very easy for me to feel alienated and alone, to slip into depression, but the people at Northern Manor wouldn’t allow it. There are new activities every day, opportunities to socialize, and I never felt alone. It’s a place that gives me hope, to look forward to the next day, the next moment and the next thing in my life. Thanks to Northern Manor, for me every day is a blessing. I can rest easy.
