A Letter to the Staff at BHRC
On Saturday, June 29, I will be discharged to home after completing my therapy stay. As I get ready to go, I have tears of happiness and sadness. I have been a resident on Summit (Transitional Care Unit) for almost four months. Over that time, BHRC has become my second home.
I would recommend BHRC to anyone in need of this type of service, from nursing to therapy. The staff are all professionals in their own positions, yet they put things on a personal level, making everyone feel like family.
I can’t say enough good about the Innovative Therapy staff, Lynn, Jeff, Carrie Lynn, Nichole, Duane, Lisa, Vicky, Erin, the rest of the crew that come over from Valley and the restorative crew. They do a wonderful job and make miracles happen.
The Life Enrichment department is AWESOME! Frank, Jill and Holly do a great job of keeping everyone busy and offer activities of some sort to everyone, no matter what their need or disability. There is no need to ever say “I’m bored” or “there is nothing to do.”
The nurses and CNAs are great; they know how to do their jobs in a professional manner, and yet they become your friends, too.
The laundry was always done. Housekeeping did a great job, and the Kitchen help was accommodating. Maintenance and supplies were available when needed.
Scooter and C.J. do a wonderful job of making sure you have everything concerning the financial part of your stay and that you have all the help and things you need when you get ready to go home.
I can’t forget Art. How else would we get to our appointments on time? He is not “Just The Driver” (JTD); he always takes time to say hi and give his girls a hug when he sees them.
I feel like I found a new “family” with all the people I’ve met and the special ones we lost during my stay.
So as I leave my “home” for home, I say “see you later” not “goodbye,” because I’ll be back every now and then to see you all.
