Heart and Soul
Dear Burlington Health & Rehab,
Thank you for letting me come to your floor. You brought life back into my heart and soul. It was very challenging to see the light before I came to Burlington Health & Rehab. You ALL have lifted my spirit from my heart to my soul. I could never ask for anything more than how you allowed me to see the light. You all have brought that back into my life. I will always remember you from the nurses, care providers, therapists and the residents. You all brought me back to life. You all take care! Let your paths always be clear.
Your friend forever,
P.S. Thank you for the encouragement you have given to me. You all bring joy to my heart everyday.
Grateful to work at Genesis
My time working at Burlington Health and Rehab opened my eyes to the beauty of working in a rehab/nursing facility. You get to work with such resilient and courageous patients and residents who work so hard to strengthen and break new bounds both physically and mentally. The staff are dedicated to being creative and thoughtful when engaging with the patients/residents.
From the Maintenance staff’s ability to save the day and adapt to the buildings needs, to dietary’s commitment to providing individualized menus for those in the building. Administration and the Nurse Unit managers are committed to meeting the needs of those in the building and continues to strive for greatness. The admissions department’s dedication to working with the IDT team to not only manage the beds but find the most desirable arrangements for the patient/resident is such an incredible asset to the building. The Therapy department at Burlington Health and Rehab works tirelessly to help both short and long term residents meet their goals and provide support throughout the patients/residents journey.
Although I may be bias with saying this as the previous social service director, the social service department truly dedicated itself to advocating for the residents/patients needs and working with those in the building and community to help achieve the patients/residents desired outcome in life. When my time came where i found I needed to move out of state, I was grateful to be in a company that was not only understanding of this, but made it so easy to transfer to another facility out of state within the company. I am so grateful to work for Genesis and the time I spent working at BH&R.
- Jessy Snyder, former Director of Social Services at BHR
Wouldn't change a thing
When we asked a recent resident what we could do to make his stay even better, he replied, “nothing, I’m speechless. Everyone listens to me and is so welcoming, makes me feel good. The nurses are always there to make sure I’m comfortable. The physical therapy staff make me want to improve and try harder and push myself so that I can be independent at home.”
