Dear Patients, Residents and Families
COVID-19 Second Booster Dose
The CDC recently released a recommendation for a second COVID-19 booster dose for certain persons. Specifically, a second mRNA booster dose could benefit people ages 50 years and older, as they are at increased risk for severe COVID-19. People ages 50 years and older may choose to receive a second booster dose, if it has been at least 4 months after the first booster. We recommend that appropriate residents receive their second booster dose. The COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) are available. Please let your physician or nurse know right away if you or your loved one would like to receive the second booster.

Feedback from our patients:
"Was here for rehab from 9/21/2020 to 9/29/2020. I fell trying to get out of my chair and was brought to Danbury Hospital. I ended up having a humerus fracture. After getting rehab at Glen Hill Center I am fully ready to go home. Also, family was able to visit me outside Monday-Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. So happy I came here."

"The nursing staff are angels sent from heaven at Glen Hill Center."
- Jim C.
"Very good short stay. Alexa was very sweet, I hope she never loses her heart because its gold. I took her card, she works in admissions, and if I need anything I know who to call. Happy my husband got better and could come home for his birthday. My husband will miss the staff. Thank you Glen Hill!"

"Came to Glen Hill in May, great facility. Alexa was very nice and helpful, came to see me on my first day in and checked in on me after that. It was nice to have someone to talk to. I wasn't there for long, therapy was great and got me to where I needed to be quickly to get me back home. Steve, Erin and was great to work with in therapy. Place was clean and bright, some facility's are so dark and depressing this was nice. Would recommend to anyone who needs help for rehab and would come back again if I needed!"
- Ted S.
"I have lived at Genesis Healthcare Glen Hill Center since 1/28/2016. During the COVID19 pandemic this facility has taken great precautions to keep us, the residents, safe at home. Even with the necessary restrictions in place, I do not feel as though I have lost my freedom in any way, and the same Genesis Glen Hill Center standards are being upheld. Staff is capable, smart and caring. It is so clean, if I drop something I have to pick it back up right away. The food is surprisingly very good, I love to cook and for me to say I like the food is a high praise. Glen Hill Center has an amazing reputation in the community for being an amazing nursing facility and that was not something they achieved on accident. They earned their name and reputation. I was in the hospital for pneumonia my 3 daughters and I knew I had to go to a rehab facility to get stronger and possibly stay long term and we couldn't be happier with our choice of Glen Hill."
- Frank T.
"I have been a resident at Glen Hill Center since 7/1/2015 and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Its a beautiful place with a recreation staff that is second to none. All my needs are met and in a timely fashion. I wouldn't want to call any other building home. No complaints since 2015-2020+"

Tears of joy
"I came to Glen Hill Center in August of 2020 and am finally ready to go home today (November 2020). My tears are from joy, not sadness, I will miss all the staff here that took such good care of me. To my aide Yazery, I could tell from the start that you would be the best caregiver, I will never forget your kindness!"
