My mom was a patient at your facility after a bad fall at home.

She was in bad shape – not eating, very weak, in horrible pain. She just laid in bed and screamed every time she had to move.

Your staff was so good with her. I would especially like to recognize Sean, an orderly, and Tanya, RN.

When she left there, she was walking with a walker and eating better, and a lot stronger. She has said to me many times that she would not hesitate to go back to St. Francis if she ever needed subacute rehab again.

Thank you and your staff for getting my mom moving again. Her progress at home has been slow but steady.
