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.

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.

Dorothy*, 91, arrived at The Gardens at Tunkhannock suffering from acute respiratory failure and acute intestinal obstruction. She had impaired cognition, trouble swallowing and generalized weakness. In addition, Dorothy was trouble keeping her balance which caused a decrease in her overall function and mobility.

Working with Dorothy, our physical, occupational and speech therapy teams developed a tailored rehabilitation plan with strategic objectives – our goal was to help Dorothy regain her independence so she could return home safely.

Dorothy’s can-do attitude amazed us all! Each day, she faced her challenges with fierce determination. In time, Dorothy’s impaired cognition showed significant improvement and she resumed her prior functional level of alertness and was now qualified to make her own decisions. Dorothy also achieved independence in swallowing regular consistency foods and thin liquids. Dorothy was taught to utilize external memory aids (such as logging upcoming appointments and having a notepad readily accessible to write things down) to recall detailed information accurately once she has returned home.

In addition, Dorothy achieved independence in performing activities of daily living (ADL), including, hygiene, grooming, bathing and toileting as well as cooking with adaptive devices. Upon discharge, she achieved the ability to walk up to 500 feet with a rolling walker independently, independent for all transfers, and up and down 10 steps with one handrail and supervision. She was able to retrieve items from high and low surfaces and was issued a home exercise program to preserve her strength upon leaving the facility.

Dorothy dreamed of returning home – together we made that dream a reality!

Please join us in congratulating Dorothy on her successful rehab journey!
