Victory is His!
“My Time at Saint Albans Health and Rehab: On March 20, 2019 I fell on a cruise ship and crushed my fibula in my left ankle. Following my surgery on March 30th, I was fortunate on April 4th to obtain a room at Saint Albans Health and Rehab. My leg was in a cast and I was ultimately 9 weeks non-weight bearing. Having never broken a bone (and I am 66 years old) I became very depressed. However, thanks to the dedication of the rehab staff, LNAs, and nurses- my spirits were lifted. The physical and occupational therapists helped me learn to function on one leg. I learned hop on one leg for several feet at a time. I learned how to get dressed and in and out of bed by swiveling and hopping. Two weeks ago I was finally able to wear a walking boot. Since then the physical therapists and occupational therapists had me walking with the walker 400 feet at a time and preparing food in the rehab kitchen. I leave for home today, June 19, 2019. I am so grateful for the dedicated staff that assisted me in my recovery. I also need to do a big shout out to the other residents that became close friends and welcomed me as part of the Saint Albans Health and Rehab family. I have been blessed to know everyone and will never forget them. I highly recommend Saint Albans Health and Rehab to anyone recovering from an injury or illness.”
- James A. Pelkey
"I would highly recommend this place to anyone seeking Rehab Services. The whole team, from nurses to therapists and anyone in between were so easy to work with and to get along with. It was a joy to experience that. Also, there was always plenty to eat!"
This was my first visit. I was very pleased about the way I was taken care of. If I had my issues (and there were very few), they were taken care of promptly. PT saw that I was well taken care of. Because it was my first time here, at my age, I do have particular priorities, and they were all met.
-Flora P. (90 years old)
I am very appreciative of all the help the nursing and rehab staff provided to me.
