Testimonials

The care our mom has received during her time at The Gardens has been exceptional. All of the staff that attend to her daily needs have been very friendly and professional. In the ten years she has been a resident every staff member we have had interaction with has been compassionate and understanding. I would recommend this facility to anyone needing a place for their loved one.

Elaine Howell

I’ve worked her 15 years…the best part about being employed at The Gardens at Tunkhannock is being part of my local community and providing rehab for individuals who guided me through my life.

Marcey Shrivastava

PT, Director of Rehabilitation
Thank everyone for being friendly and helpful during dad’s therapy and discharge planning. We are thankful for the home visit provided by therapy, their recommendations and training.

Family of Calvin Wilson

I am very pleased with the amount of time nursing is spending with my wife to make sure the wound vac is working correctly and in the right place for optimal healing.

Mr. Ervin, Husband of Joan Ervine

Happy 4th of July 🇺🇸 🎇

“Wild Bill” Wells came to us 12/3/2019. He was a success story in the past who had discharged home to his own apartment. We were glad to see him but wish he had just come to visit. Bill was admitted to the hospital with sepsis which really knocked him off his feet. He was now requiring a mechanical lift to get out of bed to a wheelchair. He required maximal assistance to dress his upper body and was dependent for dressing his lower body. He was unable to attempt walking. After 3 months of rehabilitation “Wild Bill” had done it, he had resumed ambulating up to 300 feet with his 4 wheel walker independently and had resumed independent transfers. He resumed dressing and bathing himself with adaptive equipment and was ready to go home.

Due to COVID -19 this discharge plan was delayed. The caregivers whom he had in the past were no longer available and it was difficult for the company to get new employees in for training. Finally on June 22, 2020 everything was set back up for a safe transition back to his apartment with assistance from caregivers for safe bathing, cooking, cleaning, and picking up medicine and groceries. Congratulations Bill, we are so happy you got back home. Remember, the next time we see you, we want you to just come and visit! Let us how well you are doing:
