Gloria's Fall Recovery Story at ManorCare Health Services - Elk Grove Village
"I was in my kitchen making cookies when I fell and landed on my back. My neighbor called 911 and I was taken to AMITA Health Alexian Brothers Medical Center Elk Grove Village. I was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with a T12 fracture. I had to have surgery on my back and after the surgery, my primary care physician, Dr. Ilya Fishman, recommended I go to a post-acute rehab center before returning home. While at the hospital, I was shown a list of facilities and I chose ManorCare Health Care Services - Elk Grove Village for my rehabilitation needs.
Joseph and Stacey were my therapists and they have been nothing but excellent. I have had a lot of therapy in the past, due to other falls and fractures. The therapy I received at ManorCare is by far the best. Both Joseph and Stacey used a variety of equipment. They would identify what would improve or meet my needs the best. They explained everything in detail with great patience and kindness. Both of them had wonderful personalities and helped me reach my goals. I’m walking around with my walker now and getting closer to my discharge day.
In the future, if I ever need rehabilitation, I will return to ManorCare - Elk Grove Village for the best physical and occupational therapy experience." - Gloria, ManorCare Patient
