Jamia G. was able to discharge from Genesis La Plata Center with a higher level of functioning than before she admitted! She leaves us saying: “Rehab was great! My stay was awesome! Thank you all for pushing me. I didn’t expect to recover so quickly!
Sallie Z. was able to transfer to La Plata Center after needing more than care than she could get at an Assisted Living Center. Morningside House ALF and La Plata Center SNF worked together to get Sallie and her belongings safely transferred to the Skilled Nursing Facility where she is happy, safe, and receiving the higher skilled care that she now requires. Great Team work during these COVID times to ensure the best care is provided to a person in need!
Taught things here
Therapy at La Plata Center was great, I was taught things here that I will definitely be able to continue to use at home.
- Elizabeth R.
Susan W. tells me: “ I was not sure I wanted to come into this Nursing Home. I told my brother that I do not need to go but since the hospital said that I needed to go and my brother was insisting on it as well, I agreed to come to Genesis La Plata Center.”
Ms. W. has not been at the center long but she has been here long enough to have made up her mind and believes that so far she has made the right decision. Though she still has bouts of pain and knows she has a way to go she says that so far, “Everyone has been really nice to me which is really comforting since I am in pain a lot of the time.” and “The housekeeping girl does a good job, she comes in a lot to make sure it stays clean in here, I like that.”
5-Star Rating from husband and wife
“I give this place 5 stars, everyone treated me all right. I’m not sure I want to leave I liked having someone taking care of me, but I need to check on my apartment and things at home.” (Mrs. Grant). “I like this place too, but I like even more that I am able to walk now and I can walk out of here on my own!” (Mr. Grant).
Treat me like family
I love the way they treat me like family, reminds me of being back home in Scotland. Wish I didn't have to leave but I know where I will come back to if I ever need them again.
