“I spent a little over three weeks receiving skilled therapy services. The time went fast and I got to know several people there. If I needed anything there was always someone to help me find the answer. The therapist make you work hard, but this gets you home and it is worth it. The private room with big-screen TV was a nice touch and I loved the BINGO!”
