You are each and all members of a most caring, smooth-functioning, professional and personally invested organization. I have every reason to be thankful that you were there for me then and even now. Indeed, I am thankful and will pay it forward for the rest of my life.
I was transferred from Citrus Memorial Hospital Cardiac & Vascular Care Center to your facility late in the day on November 6, 2016. I was a little surprised and a lot pleased by my welcoming party. Your crew is like a large family, extending and contracting as necessary to cover the ever changing needs of people with needs similar to mine. I continued to receive care in the same measure I had come to expect while at the hospital.
Personal hygiene is most important to me, and I was truly blessed to have Alee attend to my needs each morning for all but one or two days. I had come from the hospital with more vitality than I’ve had in 30 or 35 years, and so I wanted to run up and down the halls. I’m a rule follower, though, and did my best to contain my enthusiasm to match my own. It’s amazing how closely attached one becomes to caregivers who truly care. I felt confident with my meds and other needs taken care of by Jenn. Betty could have been a drill sergeant, but she is good, and I really appreciated her manner. Terrie and Mira were always professional but good humored. Tracie was a thoughtful, truly caring lady both my wife and I were pleased to have with us. Lorna was a tireless helpmate and much appreciated. Ken Hirst had a significant impact on my sense of well-being and my improving health. He really knows his stuff and was kind and gracious in sharing it. Lucy and Bryant made big impressions with me, and I appreciated their knowledge, skills, and abilities. There were many others who contributed to my welfare, and I offer my thanks to all and hope to be forgiven for a failing memory. Those who attended me already know the depth of my thankfulness. Truly, the staff and members of the Diamond Ridge team work as a caring unit, and for that you all should be proud and know the tremendous difference it makes to your rehab patients!
