I don’t know why anybody would choose another facility for rehabilitation and recovery! My husband and I have both been here in the past! The people that always stand out to me are Angel, Lenny, Corinne, and Tasha the therapist. They are always kind and caring and have an outgoing attitude which makes recovery a lot better. Everyone was always good about keeping me informed about what was going on. I appreciate the care provided by Milford and would absolutely come back again in the future.
A Health Care Professional from Yale New Haven Hospital gave me the name of Milford Health and Rehabilitation Center and had mentioned that the facility provided exceptional therapy. His recommendation could not have been more accurate. The therapy provided by Milford was wonderful. It was by far the best therapy and care that I have ever received. I was tremendously impressed with Brian and his care for me. Not only Brian, but Julie, Allison, Lindsey, and Jen were all wonderful and phenomenal when it came to assisting me. People like Mercy, Paulette, Francine, and Diane were so good to me. I could not have asked for a better place to be for recovery. Thank you Milford Health and Rehabilitation Center!
I chose to come to Milford Health and Rehabilitation Center base on a previous experience here. The first time that I came to Milford was after my ‘Total Knee Replacement’ on my right knee. I enjoyed my time here for that, the care I received was phenomenal, and the results were good so I decided to come back here for a second time. The most memorable people during my time at Milford were Michael, Vanessa, Diane, and Doug. They were all friendly, kind, and caring towards me. The student was also very helpful and helped me out in any way that they could. I enjoyed the care that I received from Milford Health and Rehabilitation Center and if I ever needed to come back for a third time, I would choose Milford without a doubt.
One of my loved ones had checked me into Milford Health and Rehabilitation Center for the simple reason that everybody there is wonderful. Everyone there is friendly and caring and does a fantastic job in taking care of their patients. If I could recognize anyone, I would like to mention that Vanessa, Dami, and Juli were all wonderful people in helping me with my time at Milford Center. Overall, the facility was extremely nice and there was a very friendly atmosphere throughout my whole stay. I would absolutely recommend Milford Health and Rehabilitation Center!
I checked myself into Milford Health and Rehab and chose this facility because I have been here before from a past surgery. I decided to come back here because the first time around I received nothing but excellent care. I loved it here and all of the staff is wonderful! :) It was a nice stay and I would recommend it to anyone!
I chose to go to the Milford Health and Rehab center because my doctor’s nurse was the one to recommend it. On top of that, I also have a neighbor who has gone here before and he said that the care was wonderful while he was a patient. I would like to recognize everyone from the rehabilitation center. PT, OT, doctors, nurses, and CNA’s all went above and beyond for their care. Everyone was helpful, patient, and kind.
I came to Milford Health and Rehabilitation Center for rehab. Everyone here was great and they all worked as a team to get the job done.
I chose Milford Health and Rehab for my mother because it came highly recommended and we were fortunate that it was in close proximity to where my family lives. The staff was wonderful and made a great effort to ensure my mother's comfort and that all her needs were being met. We were also very happy with the cleanliness of the center and would return if the need ever arises.
I’d like to say how grateful my sisters and I are for the attention, love and devotion of the staff at the Milford Health and Rehabilitation Center. We were very fortunate to have had the opportunity and good fortune to place here in your facility. We always hear nightmare stories about nursing homes …and that was not the case in Milford Health. The nurses, the aides, the social workers, the recreation ladies, the hairdresser.. ALL went out of their way every day, 24/7, to provide the best care possible. Even when my mother had a bad day and would last out at them, they never wavered in their mission to provide loving care. We’ll be forever grateful for all they did for our family and continue to do for their patients.
Dear Dave, My mom lived at Milford Health and Rehabilitation for almost 4 years, and I wanted you to know I am so very grateful for the care she received there. I have to single out a few of your employees, because without their dedication my mom would never have been able to have been taken of as she was. The nurse in charge of floor #2, Jennifer, was always available to take the extra time to answer my questions and put me at ease. She never made me feel as if I was disturbing her-in fact just the opposite-she always followed up on mom’s progress and was happy to report back to me. She was competent, caring and wonderful. Debbie was also most helpful. When I was diagnosed with a brain tumor and unable for me to visit my mom, my son took over the visits for me and Jennifer and Debbie went out of their way to speak to me whenever I called and offered help to our son. Thank you from our entire family,
On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you and the wonderful staff at Milford Health and Rehabilitation for the compassionate care given to my mother during her stay of 2 ½ years. There was rarely a day even until the time of her passing that we didn’t arrive to find a smile on her face. While she couldn’t always tell us about her day with “words”, her disposition, along with communication by the staff and calendars filled in the blanks. We are so grateful to your entire team for their support and kindness. Sincerely,
"Thanks to the wonderful care I received from your physical and occupational therapists, I was able to move around my home and navigate the 16 stairs to the second floor successfully. The nurses and aides were helpful, cheerful, and prompt to take care of my needs. Thank you again for a positive rehabilitation experience."
To all my nurses and aids on Section C, I want to thank each and every one of you for the care I got at Milford Health. I do not want to begin writing names because I am afraid I will forget somebody and that would break my heart. You are all special people for what you do and I will not forget you.
My Family and I would like to express our thanks to everyone at Milford Health and Rehab. My mom’s nurses were devoted and compassionate. Thank you for taking such wonderful care during my mother’s stay. Sincerely
