Short-term Therapy Success Spotlight: Meet Evelyn

Short-term Therapy Success Spotlight: Meet Evelyn

“My Husband called Cedar Haven and there was a spot for me. I had the very best of everything there. I would highly recommend Cedar Haven to anyone.”

-Evelyn, Cedar Haven Short-term Therapy Graduate

Today we would like to introduce you to one of the successful “graduates” of our short-term therapy services at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center. Evelyn was admitted to Cedar Haven last November after having major surgery and spending a month at a local hospital. Once she was ready to leave the hospital, she needed rehabilitation. When asked about her admission to Cedar Haven, Evelyn explained the following: “My Husband called Cedar Haven and there was a spot for me. I had the very best of everything there. I would highly recommend Cedar Haven to anyone.”

Cedar Haven’s Therapy Department: Therapeutic Success After Surgery

Evelyn shared that though she missed home after her surgery, she really needed assistance getting back her strength. “I couldn’t even lift my arm up over my head when I left the hospital,” Evelyn recalled. “They started small in Physical Therapy with me and now I’m able to do so much more. Cedar Haven has the best Physical Therapy department that I can imagine.”

Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy

Like many of our residents, Evelyn received both Physical and Occupational Therapy services during her stay at Cedar Haven. Speech Therapy is also offered at Cedar Haven.

“Trace, Laurie, Bruce, and everybody else in the physical therapy department were all fantastic,” Evelyn shared. “My Occupational Therapists were wonderful, too. Nothing but the best. I couldn’t be more grateful for everything they’ve done for me.”

 

Choose a facility with a low rehospitalization rate

In March and April of 2017, Cedar Haven’s rehospitalization rate (the rate at which our residents go back to the hospital within their first 30 days at our facility) was under 6%, which is dramatically lower than the 18% national average. Call our Admissions department at (717) 274-0421 to learn more about our short-term therapy department and to make plans for your admission to Cedar Haven following an upcoming hospital stay.

Happy Valentine’s Day – Meet Earl and Josie

Happy Valentine’s Day – Meet Earl and Josie

“We met in the main dining room at Cedar Haven… I took a liking to her right away and offered to buy her a cup of coffee.” The rest was history!

This is the second post in a new resident spotlight series. 

Our residents have lots of opportunities to make new memories and enjoy life with friends at Cedar Haven. While fun events take place within our walls every day, it’s hard to beat a wedding. There are several couples who have met and married at Cedar Haven over the last fifty years. What better time is there than Valentine’s day to share the story of Earl and Josie, who met and married at Cedar Haven!

How They Met

Earl and Josie met in the main dining room at Cedar Haven. Earl noted that, “I had been here a little over a year and Josie had been here 3 weeks. I took a liking to her right away and offered to buy her a cup of coffee.” The dining room was a great location for them to continue spending time together over food and coffee as they got to know one another.

A Cedar Haven Wedding

Earl and Josie were in the Cedar Haven chapel. Describing the wedding, Earl said that “It was very nice. There were 77 attendees.”

“We had two ministers officiating, one representing each of our religions,” noted Josie.

After the wedding, they enjoyed a reception in the Cedar Haven Recreation Room. Over 200 well-wishers joined in the celebration. “We had cake, finger foods, and spent time with our guests,” remembers Josie.

Josie and Earl are pictured above in front of a tree decorated for Valentine’s Day at Cedar Haven. Earl and Josie continue to enjoy spending every day with one another at their side. “We like watching TV in the room we share together and we still get coffee together on a daily basis,” said Earl. “We go to church and mass together and visit with mutual friends in the main dining room,” shared Josie.

Here’s to many more Valentine’s Day celebrations for this sweet couple! From all of your friends at Cedar Haven: We’re so happy that you found each other.
