COVID Booster Shots
Hard to believe we are already half way through the summer! In preparation for the fall COVID and Flu season and with the new COVID BA.5 variant circulating, we are recommending all nursing home and assisted living residents receive their COVID booster and Flu shots. Centers will provide access to Flu shots in September and boosters are available now.

"Your nursing personnel were very professional and proficient. Also, your occupational and physical therapists were competent and friendly."
"I was very impressed with the staff and the caring they showed to other people there. The OT and PT staff were great- making therapy a treat and not a treatment! I am improving well and would tell anyone who needs rehab to come to Franklin Woods."
"My stay here was very helpful: The staff here is very knowledgeable and professional. I was here once before and I knew when I needed rehab again I only would go to Franklin Woods."
