“I’ve been here three weeks, and it’s been a great experience. I want everyone to know Katie and Kim at the front desk reception have helped my family when they have come. If something is delivered, it’s brought right back when they come by my room; they always stop and say hello.
Mackenzie, the Concierge, is fabulous. She has come when I have needed anything and made it happen almost immediately, or found the answer when she didn’t know it. Brandi, the Administrator, is great! She’s checked on me and answered my questions. Melissa, the DON, I have no words for how great she has been. You can ask her anything, and she gets the answer ASAP! Kelly, Ann, and Freda are the activities department. They ensure I get to attend everything I want; they come by, sit and talk with me, and go way out of their way to see what I like and dislike. A great team! The therapy team is great! Miranda, Joe, and the rest of the team have worked me to the max to get me moving again! Belinda in Social Services always stops me to say hello and ensures I have everything I need.
Because I’m picky, the kitchen staff has gone out to help me with food. Kiki and Alexis, the managers, and my nurses and techs, have been great. Lindsey, Catie, and Josecca, ICP (the queen), have exceeded what nurses would do and are so caring! My techs, Taneiya, Gisell, and Toni truly care, and are great in everything they do for me- and also go beyond to help me.
Felicia, the lead CNA, checks on me constantly. She is a true leader. I have nothing negative to say! This place has met all my needs and beyond! I wouldn’t want to be at any other facility. I have gotten stronger than I’ve been in over a year! If you need a place for rehab or long-term, I wouldn’t go anywhere else!” – Wendi J
“Dear Creekside Center for Rehabilitation & Healing,
I find myself at a loss for words when trying to express the depth of my gratitude for the extraordinary care and support I received during my time at your esteemed institution. Through the trials and tribulations of my battle with drop foot, I discovered a remarkable strength within myself, and it is your remarkable team who nurtured and guided me back onto my feet, both physically and emotionally.
When I was first diagnosed with drop foot, I refused to let it define me or hinder my pursuit of a fulfilling life. I continued to work for three more years, but with time, the condition began to take its toll, and walking became an arduous task. It was then that I sought solace and assistance from the Creekside Center for Rehabilitation & Healing. From the moment I walked through your doors, I was enveloped by an atmosphere of compassion, dedication, and unwavering support.
The physical therapy provided by your skilled professionals was nothing short of miraculous. They meticulously crafted a rehabilitation program tailored to my specific needs, utilizing cutting-edge techniques and state-of-the-art equipment. They pushed me beyond my limits, challenging me to regain mobility and strength. Each day, their unwavering belief in my ability to heal fueled my determination to overcome the obstacles.
But not only the physical aspect made a difference in my recovery. Your center recognized the importance of addressing the mental and emotional toll that a debilitating condition can have on an individual. The mental support I received was invaluable. The compassionate therapists and counselors lent a listening ear, offering guidance and encouragement when doubts crept into my mind. They taught me to find resilience within, reminding me that the power to overcome adversity lies in one’s attitude and determination.
In the words of Barack Obama, “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” This quote resonates deeply with me, as it captures the essence of my journey at Creekside. The center not only restored my physical abilities but also instilled within me a renewed sense of agency and the belief that I hold the power to shape my destiny.
The influence of Martin Luther King Jr. is also deeply felt as I reflect on my experience. He once said, “If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl. But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.” Your remarkable team exemplified this sentiment, encouraging me to keep moving forward, no matter the pace or setbacks I encountered. They taught me that progress is not always linear but that each step, no matter how small, brings me closer to my goals.
Today, as I stand on my own two feet, grateful for the gift of mobility restored, I owe a debt of gratitude to every member of the Creekside Center for Rehabilitation & Healing. From the therapists who challenged me to surpass my limitations to the support staff who created a nurturing environment, I am forever indebted to your dedication and expertise.
Thank you for helping me reclaim my independence, standing beside me during the darkest moments, and igniting the flame of hope within my heart. My time at Creekside has been a transformative experience, reminding me that with resilience, support, and unwavering determination, no obstacle is insurmountable.
With heartfelt appreciation” – Geno Pea
“My father was at Creekside for rehabilitation after being in the hospital, and they helped him in a variety of ways. They healed an issue on his foot he had been battling for years, they communicated the care plan clearly and called me frequently to give me updates. He is a picky eater but loved the food while he was there. They clearly showed him caring and patience while he was there.” – Monica O.
“My name is Leonardo C. I’m a 66-year-old Air Force Veteran. Creekside Center has been a warm home to me. The staff is excellent! The residents are a great group of people! I enjoy the meals and snack foods they serve. The property is beautiful, inside and out. There is always something new to do and see and many opportunities for friendships. I would recommend Creekside Center to anyone needing short-term or long-term care. – Leonardo C.
“Creekside is my new home away from home. Prior to transferring from the hospital, I dreaded coming here because of my past experience with other facilities. From the moment I arrived, I couldn’t believe how everyone was so kind and dedicated to making me feel comfortable. The staff are so encouraging and do not make me feel bad for my limitations. Every day, I am gently pushed to do what I can. I am gaining strength and will soon be able to go home (my other home). I will continue to pass the word that this is a great place with great people, and I am so glad I decided to give them a chance.” – Terry D.
“I would not hesitate to recommend Creekside Center to anyone who is looking for a comfortable, clean place with friendly, professional people to tend to your needs. They have helped me in so many ways! As a temporary resident, I am pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the physical and occupational therapy programs so much. My strength and stamina have improved.” – D. Delzell
“I enjoy helping family members place their loved one in a home that they are comfortable in when they need it. I have been in the profession for the last five years. Being a part of an organization like Creekside Center makes it even more rewarding to get up and go to work every day.” – Amanda G.
“I like the therapy people and everyone I deal with. They’re all really nice and they get you in a routine! The nurses and techs are nice. They always check on me and make sure I’m doing good. This is my second time out here and I was glad to be able to come back.” – Rex W.
