You’re simply the BEST!!
To Wakefield Center:
Lawrence S. is my brother and has been a resident at Wakefield Center for almost 3 years. I live in Holland and can only visit once a year but am in contact with him weekly. This is what I have to say about this facility... You’re simply the BEST!! No doubt our family has been through a lot trying to get my brother settled. It is so reassuring to see how happy he is in his home there. I am so impressed with your wonderful team of nurses. You have touched my brother’s heart. When I see how happy he is, it puts a smile on my face. Hugs to all of you! All you nurses to be admired, Top Team!
Strong and walking!
When Sam first came to Wakefield in May he was very weak and was a fall risk. Now after working with Therapy he is strong, walking all over the unit. Great job Sam!
