Margaret Dimond's mother, Irene, came to MedBridge at Heartland Health Care Center - Oakland after a stroke. Irene was unable to walk and had difficulty feeding herself, but after working with our therapy and nursing teams, she was able to walk with a walker and feed herself independently. The best moment Margaret experience at Heartland - Oakland was seeing her mother walk down the hallway with her therapist.
"The therapists were so positive and patient with my mother's progression in therapy. They also educated family members on expectations, timelines and other key information that assisted with adjustment to illness and rehabilitation potential. The staff was outstanding in service, caring, quality of interpersonal skills and empathy. My mother was cared fro in a comprehensive and proactive manner. Given that she was a stroke patient, she gave staff many challenging moments that they handled with courtesy and grace. Pain management and overall care was superlative. Heartland - Oakland is an excellent healing environment, and I would recommend the facility to any patient or family who is in need of post-acute rehabilitation." - Margaret Dimond, President of Karmanos Cancer Hospital for her mother, Irene - MedBridge patient.
