The therapy I received for my knee replacement surgery was great! I stayed in the Skilled Nursing Facility and everything was just great. Having a private room was so important to me.

Never did I think I could like living in a nursing home but I really do! After a heart attack and broken hip, I can no longer live alone. The staff here is so helpful, and my room is very comfortable! I especially enjoyed the physical therapy I received.
