Peace of mind can be difficult to attain during troubled times.
But Phyllis W. found it more than once at Lancaster Rehabilitation Center when her husband, Harry, was in poor health.
“The staff were extremely friendly, attentive and accommodating,” she said. “It gave me peace of mind to return home each day because I knew he was in good hands and well taken care of.”
Harry visited Lancaster Rehabilitation Center from March to May 2009 for rehabilitation services after shattering his arm in a fall. In December 2010, he was diagnosed with colon cancer and returned to Lancaster Rehab as a long-term resident.
Thanks to physical therapy administered by Kelly Sears and his staff, Harry’s mobility improved and he once again could feed himself.
“He got excellent care both times,” Phyllis said. “They were good to him, no matter his special needs. They prevented him from suffering significantly.”
She said not only was the facility clean, but also recommended dances, church services, flower planting, in-house barber services and more.
“It is important to keep residents active and happy,” Wagner said.
Likewise, it was evident Lancaster Rehab’s staff recognized the need to keep family members and visitors comfortable and happy.
Phyllis said she also was cared for well. She spent Harry’s last three nights at Lancaster Rehabilitation Center in the same room with her husband.
Since Harry died July 14, 2011, Phyllis has volunteered at Lancaster Rehab every two weeks.
She recommends Lancaster Rehabilitation Center to everyone she knows who is seeking similar care.
