A little over a year ago was my first time here and at that time the care was wonderful. I knew when I was going in for my procedure I wanted to go to Care One at Teaneck after my release from the hospital. There was no doubt about it. The care here is very good. The staff are all very compassionate and caring and want to please the residents in any way possible. The nursing staff are all very good and the aids are wonderful. They keep you clean and take good care of your body. The physical therapy is very good and accommodating. They push me to my limits so I can accomplish my goals. I would recommend this facility to anybody and if I had to do it again I would come back. I wouldn’t even think about it twice.

The therapists at CareOne at Wayne are excellent. I think of rehabilitation as 80% medicine and 20% compassion. The CareOne therapists are fantastic! They have a smile on their faces everyday I recommend the therapy department to anyone who needs rehab.

When I first got here and I put my feet on the ground, I didn’t think I would ever stand on my own. With all of the help I received from Eric and Hazel, I feel like a real person again
- Ida Ponte
Thanks so much to Carolyn and Julius for all you did to get me back on my feet and for taking such good care of me. I appreciate all of your thoughtfulness and kindness. I will miss you!

I feel very confident in CareOne at Wellington. I came here shaking and undernourished and now I’m dancing and smiling. I am comfortable, well-fed, and happier than ever. Every time I have a visitor or speak to an old friend, I have nothing but nice things to say about this wonderful place. Before CareOne at Wellington, I was very lethargic, and now I am vivacious. The staff here are all kind, sweet, and gentle. Not only do I love the people, but I also love the fact that I can have my hair done weekly, go to mass, and even brush up on my dance moves. I want to spend the rest of my life at CareOne at Wellington.
My Stay at CareOne has been above and beyond my expectations. The entire staff goes above and beyond to care for the needs of the residents. I cannot say enough about the therapy staff and the patience they exhibit, along with their expertise. The nurses and aides also goes above and beyond!
Having said all that I would be remise if I didn’t give special mention to Courtney who has been my nurse most of the time. She seems to always be there working hard and is very diligent. I will miss her and CareOne every day. Thank you!
- Carolann Kraeuter
I’ve been here for about three weeks. It’s hard to remember all the names of everyone that has taken care of me. I love the therapists and I know some of them by name. One of them is named Anthony. I haven’t had a chance to do therapy with him but I see him with other patients and I notice he’s very caring. I always see him working hard with the other patients. The other therapists I know are Erin, Joanne, and Michelle and they are wonderful. I like them because they’re always concerned about me and I know that they care about me getting better. They always ask me, “Are you okay? How are you feeling?” every time they work with me. When I see them with other patients, they do the same. I love my nursing aide Rocksann. She’s always helping me. There are activities for us everyday. My favorite activity is arts and crafts. I was able to make a drawing for my great grandson and my favorite nursing aide was with me!
- Rita Galvez
I am writing to express my feelings about my husband Carmine’s stay at CareOne. He was a patient there for eight weeks. During that time he was taken care of by the most compassionate, capable, considerate nurses, aids, therapists and staff.
I was there daily and saw foe myself the attention he was given during a trying and difficult time. Also, the rooms were very clean and the atmosphere was pleasant and cheerful.
I would to thank you and all who made my husband’s stay a positive experience.
- Lillian Sarno
Our family would like to extend our sincerest appreciation for the excellent care and support you have given to our Mom and our family. Your team has worked hard to comfort all of us at this difficult time.
Our heartfelt thanks,

My father is a resident and has been at CareOne Hamilton for approximately 2 months. Our family was faced with a difficult decision and all of the staff at CareOne made our decision less stressful. Everyone is friendly and provides a high level of care that allows us to be at peace knowing our father/husband is cared for.
- John A.
For the first time in a few years I have found the perfect home. The staff is always extremely friendly and helpful. The activities are fun and keep you busy. The food is delicious and the admissions/marketing staff is helpful and caring. This is now my home, I love it here!
- Pat McCready
Thank you so much to the wonderful staff of CareOne at Teaneck. The nurses, nurses aides, physical therapist and more for your undivided attention, care, hard work, and dedication given to my mom Rachel during the last 3 months. I appreciate your help in attending my mom’s needs on a daily basis. While at work, I knew my mom was given the best service so I’d never worry! Thank you for making her stay comfortable and giving back her strength!
- Rachel Novofastovsky
On Saturday, June 24th the first time I have ever been to CareOne at Teaneck, due to my first knee replacement was quite an experience and a wonderful one at that. I must say the nurse’s aides were very very helpful, understanding and concerned, always with a smile when you call for them. One nurse’s aide named Joyce is one I think everyone could never forget! She was really that medicine of laughter that took away my pain. Joyce I thank you because you are you and I couldn’t ask for more. Then there is Tracey Ann who is always with a smile too. She was there for you to do whatever in her power to see to your needs. They also have Kaitlyn and Jesus who were amazing. They make sure that everyone is doing and getting what they need. Nurses are just as good! Jenny, Rachel and Ronnie are great nurses, they couldn’t ask for more.
- Thelma Gary
At CareOne at Teaneck the nurses are very professional. The nurse’s aides all work together and nobody is short tempered, always with a smile. Everything runs smoothly. The last place I was in was not like this at all. The physical therapy is excellent and they have everything I need. All of the staff is very nice and they answer all my questions. The place is kosher and I have to say food is also excellent and they have a lot of variety. I enjoyed my stay at CareOne at Teaneck very much!
- Sandra Macphedran
My dad is a stroke patient and needed therapy as he was in the hospital for 2 weeks and was very weak. The nurses and the nursing assistants were very attentive and caring. I would love to thank Anthony, Daisa, Rachel and Joyce for being so wonderful.
His therapists were excellent too. They worked with him to get him strong and on his feet right away. I would love to thank Farina, Dana and Christina for all that they do.
I’m so happy that he came to CareOne at Teaneck, I would recommend them to anyone. The food is very very good too!

Bill has been a dedicated participant in the Forever Fit program since April of 2017. When Bill first started with the Forever Fit program, he was unable to ambulate due to a combination of muscular atrophy and tightness, and neurological impairment. During his initial evaluation, he made it clear that he wanted to walk again and said he would do whatever it takes to reach his goal. Bill’s determination in combination with his individualized Forever Fit exercise program resulted in him finding the strength and confidence to ambulate once again.
After 3 months of training, twice a week, utilizing Forever Fit’s “wonderful” exercise machines, Bill began to find his steps during his ambulation tests. On July 6, 2017, for the first time in 6 months, Bill was able to experience the sensation of walking again by traveling a total distance of twenty feet twice with his walker. Throughout the course of his program, he has improved his muscular strength in his chest press by 50% and leg press by 117%. Bill has also improved his stand time from 30 seconds to 2 minutes while also noting that his osteoarthritic pain in his right knee has been less bothersome during activities.
The Forever Fit program has boosted Bill’s confidence to ambulate again and thus far he proudly states that walking is his “biggest physical accomplishment.” Even though he has accomplished the goal of ambulating again, he acknowledges that there is much more to gain through the Forever Fit program and looks forward to conquering his exercise program to maximize his independence.

Donna has been participating in the Forever Fit program for over a month. In April 2016, Donna unfortunately suffered a stroke that left her with severe left-sided hemiparesis. Initially, she worked with the therapy team to rehabilitate her motor function and then graduated to an exercise maintenance program. It wasn’t until Donna began strength training with the Forever Fit team that she began to see greater improvements in her daily life.
After completing four weeks of strength training at the Forever Fit gym, Donna began to notice that her stance had become stronger, helping her when transfering. She had also improved her walking distance and felt her stamina had increased. In this past month, she had improved her muscular strength bilaterally, most notably in her sit-to-stands, knee extension, chest press, and seated rows with increases in resistance of 200%, 140%, 400%, and 233%, respectively. Donna’s dedication to overcome her hemiparesis by committing to her strength training program is exemplified in her improvements on her left side as well.
Forever Fit not only provided the optimal tools to maximize Donna’s function, but it allowed her to continuously challenge herself and provided a sense of self-satisfaction. As she stated, “[the training] is difficult but [I] feel accomplished… [and] motivated to get better.” Donna continues to work hard in the Forever Fit program as she aims to reach her ultimate goal of being able to walk.

Shirley Pal has been working with the Forever Fit program for one month now. Her journey began when she first fractured her femur and was told she would never walk again. However, Shirley remained positive and determined, working hard with CareOne’s therapy team. She miraculously began walking again.
Following her therapy program, Shirley participated in the Wellness program to maintain her goal of walking. Unfortunately, she had a few setbacks that resulted in significant lower extremity weakness that caused her to become more dependent on her wheelchair. It was apparent that she felt like she took a big step backwards.
It wasn’t until Shirley joined the Forever Fit program that she found hope to walk again. The mission was clear and simple for her, to condition her legs through strength training to get her back to walking. After working with her trainer, “Saint Nick,” for one month utilizing Forever Fit’s exercise machines and personalized training approach, Shirley began walking again. Not only was she walking but she demonstrated enhanced strength through her walking gait that hadn’t been seen in months! Shirley’s positive attitude and determination demonstrates to all to never give up. As Shirley once stated, “If they say I can do it, I’m going to try and do it.”

Joe suffered from a stroke about a year ago and as a result his activity and health had started to decline. When Joe’s son had learned about the Forever Fit program at the Cupola, he without hesitation signed him up to improve his independence. He told Joe “You have an appointment in the gym at 2pm tomorrow afternoon.” Joe, not knowing what he was getting involved in, was pleasantly surprised with the vision of the program to enhance strength which would help improve his independence. He has now established himself as one of Forever Fit’s top performers.
After completing 5 weeks on the Forever Fit program, Joe noticed that his stamina had increased along with improved sleeping patterns. This allows him to attend more activities throughout the day without feeling the need to nap. Overall, Joe’s goal is to remain active during the day in order to enhance his awareness and better his sleep without heavily relying on medications. Joe’s enhanced stamina along with increases in his strength have also translated into better performance of his ADLs “such as dressing, standing…, [and oral hygiene].” They all have been done a lot faster since joining Forever Fit with Chelsea and Nick,” Joe stated. During his time on program, he has demonstrated improvement in his major functional exercises as his sit-to stand for reps requiring assistance now requires no assistance, increased his chest press and seated row by 143%, and leg press by 138%.
Not only has Forever Fit had a positive impact on Joe’s physical function, he has also noticed that his mood has enhanced too. He states, “Exercise releases endorphins, which makes you feel good. And I can say I have definitely been a lot happier!” Joe continues to work hard with his trainers at Forever Fit and is happy to be part of a family that pushes him to better himself.
- Joseph Cagna
The Staff is fine! They are very careful, very generous, very patient. I cant stay anything else, they are good. There’s nothing else they can improve on because they are good. There is no expectations. They have their different methods but they are all good. And if you don’t feel good, the come do things differently in your room. They come prepared because they know you and what you are capable of. Rachel is good. She works with you very hard, and I appreciate it! She is very encouraging. Ana has her way of doing it and it works too. She is Good! Nobody is grumpy. They are smile. You can tell they like their jobs.

Care One at Morris -Parsippany/Troy Hills is an excellent facility for Assisted Living. Our Mom moved in after a bad cold, and was just not herself. At age 88 she could no longer live independently and did not do well with in home care. Once fully recovered, she not only adjusted to the environment, she THRIVED for the first time in years! Mom went from being a shut-in to an active member of a lovely community.
The nursing care is excellent, the facility beautiful, and the food services are just what she needs. We are so lucky that she chose, and chose to stay, in Care One at Morris. Thank you for taking such good care of her.
- Mrs. Harkins' Five Daughters
I cannot stress enough how much I trust the staff here. I trust the rehab department implicitly. Matt and Joe from rehab gave me the best treatment possible. I truly believe there is no rehab better anywhere. The nursing staff always did their best to be friendly, patient, and responsive. Both nursing and rehab department here are second to none. No one wants to be in a facility, but if you need to- there's no other place you would want to be.
- Scott Maier
I am very happy here at CareOne. The best part is the rehab department, I like to call it the gym- and I love Joe, he's just so great. I've made a lot of friends with the other residents and their families. I enjoy sitting in the front and talking with them. The food has been very good and I really like the cook, Anthony. He always comes to check on me. The other day I had the most delicious pie I have ever tasted, and Anthony brought me a second piece when I told him how much I loved it. The nursing staff is good too, I have a few aides who are my favorites, but don't have any issues with any of them. I also really love Michael and his activities- he's one of the nicest people. I really can't complain about anything- I am happy with my care and the progress I have made- again I cannot say enough how great the rehab is here.

I was extremely, extremely ill and I am now strong due to the fabulous rehab and nursing department. I will be discharged on June 1st and intend to come back as a volunteer because I am so impressed with the staff and level of care at this facility. I have been in multiple facilities in my life and experienced places that nobody should go to, but CareOne at Hanover is the top of the line in New Jersey. The people that touched my life the most were Nicole from Admissions and Michael from Recreation- I consider them my new friends and cannot thank them enough. Thank you for taking such great care of me in my time of need.
- Elizabeth Miller

Well, I was so fortunate to settle into CareOne at Hanover. I thought I just was in need of PT, but was provided so much more through the wonderful rehab department, but even more than that it's the entire staff that is just exceptional. All my needs have always been met here and there is not one person who isn't willing to go above and beyond for you. As a long term resident, there is no other facility I would rather reside at because Hanover is far superior to the rest.
- Ronnie Fischler
After having a bad experience at another facility, I was very nervous coming to CareOne Hanover, especially because I am much younger than the majority of the residents. Despite the age difference, I have had a great experience and learned so much from the residents- which I did not expect at all. The first person to take time to greet me and spend time actually getting to know me was Nicole from Admissions. She was so welcoming and compassionate, she showed me around, and really helped calm my nerves. My first morning, the administrator, Margaret, also stopped by my room and had a heart to heart with me and assured me I would be ok. As the days went on, I became more and more comfortable here. The facility is clean, I enjoyed the food and cookouts, and I really feel like they personalized my stay. The nurses and aides are all very caring and attentive in making sure needs are always met. I have to say, Michael from activities, made a huge impact in my stay- his activities and the time he took to spend with me really meant a lot, and I now consider him a life long friend. I am being discharged tomorrow and feel completely at ease. All my doctor appointments, medications, and general aftercare is already in place for me and I am excited to return home and make the best of this new beginning I have been given.

My stay at CareOne of Wayne was excellent, thanks to my therapists, nurses and aides. Everyone had a smile on their face and assisted me in my recovery. I wouldn’t be where I am today without everyone’s love and support. Many thanks!
- Dorothy “Eileen” Doviak
Before coming to CareOne at Wayne we knew of several people who had exceptional care here and we received the same as well. Our therapists were fantastic and professional. Everyone cared about us 100% of the time. We would recommend CareOne at Wayne to all of our family and friends.
-Paul and Dorothy Wollerman
My wife’s recovery was truly a miracle. I cannot thank the nurses and staff, especially Ann and Maria for taking such great care of my wife. Everyone was so caring. Thank you to Rehab for getting my wife back walking. I am so happy to have her back in my life at home.
- Gino Battaglia
Denise was admitted to CareOne at Wayne April 10th. She and her family were unsure if she would be able to return home.
Denise worked hard everyday to meet her goals and the team is happy to discharge her home with her husband! Denise commented, “I love all the people that I worked with in rehab and nursing. Deb, Jas and Alexa in therapy are my girls! I am so happy I came here and I recommended CareOne at Wayne to all.

My family with my mom, Lois Duffy would like to take the time to thank all of you for the care she has been given in the time she has stayed at your facility. My mom had a stroke on 5/12/17. As her family we realize it could have been much worse, but still it left her limited with the use of her right side. Entering into CareOne she was unable to write or hold things in her right hand, she was wheeled down for therapy in a wheelchair. This was hard for her and her family considering she was always independent caring for herself. Then she met her therapist Julius, OT and Marilen, PT and spent and hour with each everyday. Lois with her family could not thank them enough! Their caring, hard work and dedication towards my mom will never be forgotten. Each day with the help and teaching of Marlien and Julius, we saw her progress unfold. My mom can walk, write her name and now her confidence is back! Not only your educated assistance, but your hearts wanting her to succeed, and do well will ALWAYS be remembered. Thank you!
-Lois Duffy and Family
Care One at Wayne is the best rehabilitation I know. I have advised one of my doctors of how wonderful you are and she will make sure to use you and spread the word.
My morning therapists are Amy and April who I wouldn’t trade for the world. Amy is my physical therapist and she works me hard to regain my everyday activities. With Amy’s help, (mainly with the walker) I am improving each and every day.
April is my occupational therapist, who also works me hard. She even takes time in the afternoon to help me practice with my walker.
I will highly recommend Care One at Wayne whenever I can.
I came to Care One for rehab after having double pneumonia. I was extremely weak when I was admitted to Care One. The therapists were excellent. They got me back on my feet. Their demeanors were always professional and caring. They always looked our for my best interest. I feel I owe my progress to them. The therapists work together as a team and I thank them very, very much. I will never forget them, as well as the rest of the staff at Care One. It's a nice feeling to have this gratitude towards the staff. Its grace from God.

Care One at Teaneck
is like the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. Expect elegance and grace. Everything is done to make the patient feel important and special. The environment itself helps with the physical and emotional healing process. At Care One at Teaneck, you will get better with the help of the incredible nurses and physical therapists, who provide an opportunity for healing of the mind, body and spirit.
- Delores Harris Harrison
This is my second visit to Oradell Health Care Center for therapy. The therapy is great and it is better than going home alone and not doing the proper exercises.
All of the staff members are excellent and very friendly. The nurses are phenomenal. All of the therapists are excellent as well. They helped me progress and push myself so that I could use my knee again.
- Dennis J.
All of my needs are met at Oradell Health Care Center. If I have any problems or if I don’t feel well, I receive immediate attention. Whether I am being taken care of by a doctor, nurse, nurse’s aid, or a physical therapist, they listen to what I have to say and do everything humanly possible to remedy me. After just a few days of being in Oradell Health Care Center, I realized I was getting more help than I ever had in the past. If G-d forbid I ever need rehab again, I would definitely choose to come back to Oradell Health Care Center. The people that work here are compassionate. They speak to you like you’re a human being and they all wish to help you in any way possible. They always speak to you with kind words and everyone here has the patience of a saint. In all honesty, when discharged from Oradell Health Care Center, I will miss all of the staff, especially the great therapists, as well as all of the residents I have come to know. But, no matter what, I will always come back and visit.
- Jeanne D.
I love Oradell Health Care Center. This is a great facility to be in and everyone that works here is great. From the nurses, to the aides, to the therapists and the administration, everyone is very helpful and compassionate. All of the staff members are caring and always make sure the residents are comfortable. The facility is clean, the food is good and the activities are excellent. I especially enjoy Breakfast Club, which is a great social event. Everyone here goes above and beyond to make residents feel comfortable and appreciated.
- Joseph N.
I have been a patient at Oradell Healthcare Center on 3 separate occasions for different medical reasons and would recommend this facility to everyone. The nurses, therapists and administrative staff are all great individuals. The facility is very clean, the food is good, the grounds and the gardens are gorgeous and there are a lot of activities to enjoy. The breakfast club is excellent you are offered anything that you want by the friendly staff and it’s a great way to make friends with other residents.
I am writing this letter so everyone will know how satisfied I am with the care I received at CareOne at Teaneck. This is the fourth time I used their rehabilitation services and I highly recommend it. It’s the best one in Bergen County.
The physical therapy department is composed of nearly 30 professional staff. They have occupational, physical and speech therapists. All of them do an excellent job in a happy, friendly and peaceful atmosphere. They all go above and beyond to help residents. Nurses, recreation, clerical and dietary staff are also very pleasant people, always ready to help when you need them.
Congratulations CareOne at Teaneck for jobs well done and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
- Mariola Pulido
I would rate Care One at Teaneck a 5 Star Facility! The entire staff gives their patients quality rehabilitation, nursing, recreation and medical services.
Thank you CareOne at Teaneck for making my stay a pleasant experience!
- Dolores Butler
I want to thank everyone at CareOne at Teaneck for treating me so wonderfully. I feel that they really all care about me. I came to CareOne at Teaneck with broken bones and I was not allowed to put any pressure on my foot. Today, I have enough strength in my foot to pick myself up and move around. I have strength in my hands now to pick myself up and do every day tasks. All of this is because of the dedication of the people that work at CareOne at Teaneck.
They treat every patient as if they are family and the care is outstanding. Between the rehabilitation therapy and nursing care, I was able to become a stronger person. I really can’t say enough about this place. The Kosher food is spectacular, I keep Kosher myself and it’s like nothing I ever tasted before. The kitchen staff is just amazing; they are very sweet and attentive. I would recommend the dinning room to anyone. I was constantly at the recreational programs, which are amazing! You can learn, socialize, join parties, musical events, or just have quiet time to read the daily newspaper. And I have to mention how clean the facility is, it’s not like any other place for sure.
Thank you to your staff for helping me get through the hardest and most difficult part of my recovery. Without them I would not be where I am now. I am still working hard to get stronger with everything they have taught me. I recommend CareOne at Teaneck with all of my heart.
- Rina Erlich
When I was transferred here from Englewood Hospital via ambulance, the driver told me that I made a good choice. My husband made the choice for me to go to CareOne at Teaneck because he visited a friend here and a neighbor was being rehabilitated here.
When I arrived, the head nurse greeted me with a beautiful smile and immediately I knew I was in good hands. The nurses are very good and the nurse’s aides are very caring toward the patients. They treat each patient like they would treat their grandmothers. The love and care is beyond the duty of work. It is personal. The rehabilitation services are excellent and make me feel comfortable to live outside the center. I am leaving well prepared.
All of the staff members love their jobs. That is why CareOne has a good reputation.
- Pauline Harmon
I have been here twice and I just really wanted to say thank you to the staff. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done. I love my nurses, they made my home away from home a most pleasurable experience. I can’t thank the CareOne at Teaneck team enough.
- Libbey Fusco
I had a total knee replacement surgery and recuperated at CareOne at Hanover Township. I am writing this letter to express my thanks to those that made my long stay a most positive and pleasant experience.
I was very much impressed with my Physical Therapist. She is knowledgeable, confident in what she has to offer and her attention to detail is remarkable. She made me feel confident that I could achieve my range of motion goal before my discharge date. With her help and support I was able to accomplish this goal and it has made my adjustment back to home much easier.
Next, I would like to acknowledge my Occupational Therapist. She is great! She is so knowledgeable and really took good care of me. She deserves a lot of credit and is a tremendous asset to CareOne as well.
I would also like to acknowledge the kitchen staff. I am a vegetarian and they went out of their way to make very delicious vegetarian dishes for me. If I requested something that they did not have in the kitchen, they promised to get it for me when they went food shopping and they stayed true to their promise. I am truly grateful for their extra effort.
Thanks to these individuals, I had a very pleasant stay at CareOne at Hanover Township. I wanted to be sure that their efforts are recognized and appreciated.
- Madhukanta (Marsha) Kamdar
I really enjoyed my stay at CareOne at Wayne. All the nurses took such good care of me and were nice to me. I almost didn't want to leave! I tell everyone I know to come here. Thank you, again, for everything.

My recovery started at CareOne at Wayne. The staff provided the enthusiasm and expertise that enabled me to progress from being bed-ridden to walking with a walker.
- Bob Capozzi
My therapists were incredible. They helped me recover from a broken ankle and two knee replacements. I love CareOne at Wayne. From the help they provide to the nurses and the food - everything is great.
- Janelle Supplee
For the past five years, I have been suffering from poor balance and dizziness. Recently, it became increasingly difficult for me to pursue my normal activities. My doctor recommended CareOne at Teaneck. I didn’t know what to expect, but from the very beginning, I was grateful to be here. I have both physical and occupational therapy every day to help me overcome my challenges. It’s hard work, but the therapists here make it fun.
Food has always been important to me and the meals at CareOne at Teaneck are exceptionally good. Games, movies, musical evenings and other forms of entertainment are available to fill the time not spent in therapy or in the dining room. While these activities are not mandatory, they are enjoyable and provide an opportunity to socialize with members of the staff and other patients.
The staff at all levels – therapists, nurses, nurses aides, those in charge of social activities, social workers, the dining room personnel, everyone I have had dealings with in my short stay here, are, without exception, agreeable and helpful.
The time I have been here has been like a mini-vacation, but vacation with a practical purpose. I am confident that my CareOne at Teaneck experience will be of great benefit to my health and well-being and to my life in general.

To the Staff of CareOne at Valley
As you know, I was recently injured and needed extensive surgery. As an independent and active woman, I was initially overwhelmed at the thought of trying to manage on my own. When I learned about your facility as an option, the decision of rehabilitating at CareOne was easy.
From the moment I arrived to the day I went home, your professional and knowledgeable staff turned a difficult time into a positive one. My physical therapists were patient and taught me how to manage my injury safely. All the nurses and aides were great; dietary and environmental services were also quick to respond and maintained a clean place to heal.
I would like to especially thank my nursing assistant. Not only did she check on me often, responded to the call bell quickly, but she assisted me with my bathroom and showering needs with respect and dignity.
Once again, thank you to all the Nursing directors and floor nurses, Social Services, Admissions and the many knowledgeable friendly faces that came to my room to make certain all my needs were met. I am home recuperating and feel confident because I was prepared by the CareOne family.

Between the nurses and the physical therapy, I’ve come a long way. And I couldn’t have done it without them.

Thanks to CareOne, now I get to enjoy retirement again.
- J.A., former CareOne patient

- T.M., son of a former CareOne patient
If it wasn’t for the people at CareOne, I really don’t know if I would be able to [race] again; they gave me the confidence I needed to recover. I was just another patient, but I was treated like a king.
- R.S., former CareOne patient
I love it here. You need anything, [the nurses] are right here to help you. I love them all.
