What truly makes us unique is our people: our residents, their families and our staff. Below are written accounts from some of our own who help to make Mattoon a great place to live.
“Everyone at Mattoon Rehabilitation & Health Care Center went above and beyond: from the lady who brought me the newspaper to the administrative staff, everyone was attentive to my needs. The nursing care I received was exceptional. I thought I would be in a nursing home for the rest of my life but the rehabilitation department changed that. I am now independent again – they changed my life!”
“I really enjoyed my stay at Mattoon Rehabilitation & Health Care Center. It was a pleasure getting to know the ladies at my table in the private dining room on the rehab unit. After just a couple of days the staff knew my eating preferences and did their best to accommodate. The staff was very thoughtful and kept my room very clean. It was a smart decision to come here for a short term rehab stay rather than going home from the hospital. I was able to participate in therapy two times a day, it was a nice routine, and I was a lot more confident about my abilities when I did return home. I would not hesitate to recommend Mattoon Rehabilitation & Health Care to a friend or acquaintance.”
“I enjoyed my stay at Mattoon Rehabilitation & Health Care Center. I met so many nice people and I had a ball. The staff was all very kind, helpful and sweet; we had a lot of laughs. I worked with therapy every day. My children were able to decorate and personalize my room. I liked having my own belongings. I was very pleased with my stay and would recommend them to family and friends.”
“My room at Mattoon Rehabilitation & Health Care Center was very comfortable. The CNA’s and nurses were the nicest people. They were all very good to me. Therapy was effective, they helped me a lot and I now have more range of motion in my arms. The meals were good and they always had something I liked. Housekeeping kept my room neat and clean, even my wife commented on how clean things were. If I need rehab in the future I would come back to Mattoon Rehabilitation.”
“We really enjoyed our experience at Mattoon Rehabilitation & Health Care Center. Everyone from the administrative staff to Dietary staff was wonderful and willing to help out in any way they could. We appreciated the therapy; they were all very kind and willing to go out of their way to help me regain my independence. We appreciated the parties that were thrown for us; our 60th anniversary party and graduation party from rehab. It was very clean and comfortable. We couldn’t ask for anything better.”
“I had a wonderful experience at Mattoon Rehabilitation & Health Care Center. I was treated with respect by all the aids and nurses. I was also treated well by the therapy staff and was able to regain my independence and move back home quickly. I enjoyed playing bingo as well as all the entertainment that came to perform for us. I was also grateful for the church services that were held at the facility. This was my second time coming here; and I would come back again if needed.”
