Dear Patients, Residents and Families
Thank you for entrusting Genesis HealthCare to care for your loved one.
The health and safety of our patients, residents, and staff guide every decision we make, even the difficult ones. On August 2, 2021, to protect those who are living and working in our facilities, we announced a universal COVID-19 vaccination requirement for our employees, care partners, and onsite vendors. The vast majority of our patients and residents had already been vaccinated. However, despite voluntary staff vaccination rates that were higher than the industry average, the rapidly growing spread of the Delta variant caused us too much concern. As you well know, older adults and those with comorbidities are at the greatest risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 infection. Vaccination is one of the best tools available to us to create the safest environment for those in our care.read more

Compassionate & attentive
I really enjoyed my time at Laconia Center. Coming here after the hospital gave me my strength back. All the staff were compassionate & attentive.
"I had a very positive and productive experience in rehab services. Each and every team member was dedicated to their work. It has been a remarkable stay and I will miss the staff; they truly listened and responded to my needs, physically and emotionally and even spiritually. Might I please also add housekeeping and recreation. Thank you!"
Thoughtful, caring, friendly
Admission diagnosis: Total Knee Replacement. Approximate duration of stay: 1 week. "Coming to the facility after surgery gave me the confidence and reassurance to go home. The staff was very thoughtful, caring, friendly."
"Working with therapy helped me to navigate uneven grounds."
Can't say enough good things
Former 1960 US Olympic downhill skier and medal winner Penny Pitou, recently had a stay at Laconia Rehabilitation Center. When asked about her stay, Ms. Pitou stated, "I can't say enough good things about the staff here at this facility. This was an unfortunate injury, however, the relationships I have made and people I have met during this time were all positive. I came here to overcome pain and gather some tools and techniques to be home and continue to heal. I am confident leaving the facility today because I have those tools."
S. Adams was admitted to Laconia Rehabilitation Center on 9/16/20 for a prosthetic knee joint infection. She discharged to her home with outpatient services from Pemi-Baker Home Health. Ms. Adams had this to say about her stay at Laconia Center, " You have a very good staff, RN's and LNA's are good"
Got my strength back

She was discharged back home with VNA services on 10/13/20 and had this to say about her stay at the center, " Your help was so nice and you have incredible people working here. I got very attached. That is so important as you get older."
Now I can walk independently
They must know I love root beer; I get some every meal! I am so glad that I have improved. When I came here I couldn't walk, I thought I was going to die. I even had a priest come and visit. But now I can walk independently. I owe it to Genesis; all the aides, nurses, and therapy helping me along. My legs were weak and I was nervous, just to stand was frightening. But they reassured me that I would be able to stand. All in all, I'm very happy that I have come as far as I have in the short time I've been here. I prayed to the Lord to help me, and here I am! I am very pleased and hope I keep it up.
