I came to Greenburg Care Center because I had my knee replacement done. They helped me get out of the bed, so I was able to start walking again with my knee replacement. My ultimate goal was to be able to walk again, so I could go home and live a normal life. I mean I miss the people there, but I was very happy to go home. Because I have a kitten at home waiting for me, and I was so happy to see her — I missed her so much.
While I was in the hospital, the doctor — seeing there was still an infection in my foot — didn't think it was going to get better at home. She didn't want to send me home. My doctor recommended Greensburg Care Center so I could get better. I was unable to walk. I was bed-bound and wheelchair-bound. By the time I left, I walked out on my own. Well actually my main goal was to get home so I could take care of my kids. They're more important to me than anybody. When I got home, my kids had a party for me!
I was in the hospital with pneumonia. I decided I would go to Greensburg Care Center to get the help I needed and I was in and out in about two weeks' time. I knew I couldn't go home alone and do this on my own. So when I think of Greensburg Care Center even to this day, I think of all the wonderful people and all the care that I had gotten. I mean I miss the people there, but I was very happy to go home.
“The staff of Greensburg Care Center is wonderful. They do everything you want them to do. From the top down. So when I had trouble with my computer, they were there.
At Greensburg Care Center I like to play Bingo. I like to garden. Bowling - bowling on the computer, which is great there are so many people love that. But the best thing up here for the peoples is Bingo. They can't wait for Bingo time. ’Cause I don't play the games myself, my wife does all of that, I stay on the computer all the time.
Cooperation between the residents and the care center is perfect. And we have great things to do here. Exercising, anything you want to do, you can do. If you want to hold a party, they give you a room and you can hold your party.
Maintenance people are great. Any time something happens they're there, they don’t ask you why or what, they just do it and on their way.
They have wonderful people, keep you happy, make you smile. Always around when you want them.
The best things about Greensburg Care Center is they make you want to live.
So what else could you say? It's just wonderful.”
“I’m glad that my Mom and Dad are together at Greensburg Care Center. They’ve been married 70 years. We had their party here at the lounge, which was really nice. They take really good care of them. Mom has shown signs of dementia and she's taken care of very well with her routine day-to-day things, medications, her meals, we don’t worry about her. That’s what I like. Dad’s a lot more mobile, a little bit physical problems, but he’s more mobile. But he's kept his mind challenged by having his garden in the courtyard. He’s on his computer quite a bit. He loves it. He’s on their WiFi network. He’s also president of the Greensburg Care Council, the resident council. So that’s pretty - that’s good, and that keeps him challenged. And I’m very happy that they’re taken care of even though I see them almost every day. I’m just very happy that they’re here. And together.
Mom’s just taken care of very well. She’s not completely aware of where she is, and that’s the bad part of the dementia. But with Dad here with her, I just think it’s wonderful. They’re both happy together at Greensburg Care. This is their home away from home, and they’re treating it that way. And that’s what I think is important.
The staff is wonderful here at Greensburg Care. They are consistent, which I think’s the most important thing, especially with Mom and her dementia. She gets to see the same people all the time. And she has a rapport with them, as does my Dad, so we’re just very happy. They treat them as their own families and I think that’s real important.
The fact that he’s still able to stay active and challenged, I think that’s wonderful. He’s on the WiFi network here at Greensburg Care. He’s just very happy. But he’s with Mom, and that’s very important to them. They had their 70th anniversary party here at the lounge at Greensburg Care and it was very lovely. We had a lot of friends and family. That was nice, we enjoyed it.
But they do love the food very much. And we eat dinner with them on occasion here, too, and it’s been very nice.
At Greensburg Care he’s able to connect his personal computer to their WiFi network. He keeps in great touch with family and friends. Everybody knows, Dad’s on the computer today ’cause we all get a lot of e-mails from him. He’s very hel- he just loves it. He enjoys it. He keeps in contact with family that’s far away, and friends.
The staff at Greensburg Care Center has been wonderful. They treat my Mom and Dad as their own families. The doctors have been wonderful, the nurses - in particular the aides, they don’t get a lot of credit sometimes, but I think they deserve it. They are really wonderful people, and we’ve adopted them too.”
“I came to Greensburg Care Center because in the early part of August I fell and broke my hip, and as a result of that, after surgery, I knew that I was going to be needing rehab.
What I like the most about Greensburg Care Center is that from the first entrance into the hallway - when I was brought here by ambulance - it was bright, it was friendly, even from the first person I met, the - they were - they became my family.
I was not a patient, I was a member of a community.
Well, the rehab at the Greensburg Care Center in the seven weeks was amazing. Because literally when I first arrived I could not even move, was not able to take myself out of bed.
I could not believe from the time I could not get out of bed to the time I was standing and working a little on my own that - I just could not have the words to explain the patience and the skill with which each one of the steps were provided for me.
And even in the transfer of that my being here and going home, everything was done step-by-step. They evaluated my home. They provided and knew what I needed. They - I went home with the equipment I needed, with the medications that I was going to need at home. There was no stone left unturned. They would just - everything was set up for me to the point that I was in my home environment but yet they knew that I was going to be able - I knew I was going to be able to do it because they did so much of the care about me before I even went home.”
