Harriet Bluming first came to Margaret Tietz Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in 2008 to recover from a fractured ankle. Now, at “90 years plus,” Harriet is back to rehab her injured hip.
"I came back this time because the therapists were so caring and encouraging last time,” explains Harriet. “I was so surprised, they all remembered me.”
While the warm welcome she received contributed to her positive outlook (a distinct advantage when undergoing rehab), Harriet marvels at the staff’s dedication and sensitivity.
“I don’t know how the therapists, nurses and CNAs do it day after day. They are so devoted to their patients. They laugh and cry with me, and in such a gentle and supportive way.”
For Harriet the good news is that her rehab is progressing quite well, and she plans to return to her home in a matter of weeks.
“But,” she smiles reassuredly, “Before I do, the therapists and I want to make sure that I’ll be able to resume my old lifestyle safely.”
