I know many people in the community and was referred here by some of them. I came in for therapy services and was really surprised at the level of care that I received. Being a younger man for this type of facility, I didn't really know what to expect but I was quickly shown that people here go out of their way to help you. The activity department provided me with various things during my time here to help keep me occupied and that definitely helped pass the time. Many of the nurses were also pleasant and helpful. Being on a bunch of new meds they were more than happy to take time out of their schedule to tell me what everything was and I appreciated that extra bit of attention in my care.

Overall, this is a wonderful place. The staff is wonderful and have so much information regarding any questions that you might have. Therapy worked around the clock with me (and everyone else I saw) to get me stable again. I am confident with the progress that I made and am excited that I get to go home in the shape that I currently am. I also want to mention how much I enjoyed the dining room. They have a new in-house chef that just started a couple months back and I really enjoyed some of his home cooked meals; it made me feel closer to home. The only suggestion that I would like to offer is that I would have preferred to see the doctor more during my time here. I understand that they are busy and have other people to accommodate but I still would have appreciated if nothing else, a friendly 'hello' any time they popped into the building.

Everything at this facility exceeded the expectations that I had coming in. Most often people think of nursing home and skilled facilities in a negative way but thankfully, my experience was nothing but pleasant. The care and compassion that the staff gives is outstanding. Dining services is wonderful and I am told that they had just added an in-house chef before I came in. I enjoyed many of the home cooked meals, not to mention the variety of courses. CNAs here are bubbly and energetic and I really feel that they helped to facilitate my wellbeing while I was here. Therapy worked hard with me and found a way to make it fun. I often found myself waking up in the morning excited to go to the gym. This facility helped support my whole family, not just myself as a resident.

I’m familiar with Bowling Green Health and Rehabilitation, toured it, and was very pleased with it. But then my husband went there for a short rehab and I don’t know whether he was having more difficulty or giving them more difficulty. They were a lovely facility and were supposed to be adequately staffed for rehab but they had just reconverted it and had a state-of-the-art physical therapy department, but my husband didn’t last two weeks. They said that they were not equipped to handle him because he was being not very cooperative and that’s the only time it’s ever happened. He kept trying to get up out of the bed, which he couldn’t, and he couldn’t walk steady on his own. They’d put him in a wheel chair, and he'd try and get to a door. He’s never been that way ever before. I only had a few meals there with him, but they were quite good. The staff, the ones that helped or tended to him personally, was very good. We were contacted and told they didn’t have the staffing and weren’t equipped to handle him and his constant efforts to get out. He basically got expelled from Bowling Green. They gave us six days of notice and said we're going to have to find another place or take him home. I was very disappointed and wouldn’t consider them a very nice facility for long-term care. Maybe, they’d be great for long-term care, but they weren’t great for helping him through the rehab. And maybe it was his fault; he just wasn’t cooperating.

I have been to a couple other facilities for therapy and this place is it! After having been here for the short time that I have, I wouldn't go anywhere else. Therapy does a great job of letting you know where you stand and what needs to be done to get you going again. The staff here are great. They are lively and energetic and go out of their way to help you. The food is phenomenal and I can't believe all the different things that activities has to offer. Pizza and movie nights are my favorite. I feel like I have made some great friends here but I'm anxious to get home and see what the future holds.

I have been to Bowling Green for therapy a couple of times now and after knowing how well they take care of you, I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. I always know what to expect coming in but someone always goes above and beyond when I'm here and helps make me feel right at home. I appreciate all the help that I'm always given; everyone is always nice. They started a new dining program since I was here last time too and I really liked that. It makes you feel like you're eating in a restaurant with the way they serve and wait on you.

I have been to this facility for respite care a couple of times. Anytime that I need a little getaway, I come here and it feels just about like home. Everyone here goes above and beyond and are always really nice. I enjoy meeting new people in the activities that the facility provides and have fun eating 'restaurant style' in their dining room. I have made some good friends in the times that I've been here and really appreciate the time that everyone took to spend with me.

Bowling Green is the one that I like best. The people are very friendly. They have activities for the residents. They have a courtyard that is really nice and they can go out there. They have screens on the wall that they can touch and see what is going on. They also have a computer available for them if they want to go online. My mother plays the piano and they have a piano in the activity room so she can go down there and play the piano.

They tried to fix the dining room so it is not just a dining room. They can go down and they have a buffet where they can choose food, then they can sit down and the staff plates them like in the restaurant, so it has that restaurant feel. They can have three meals day if they want or they can stay in their room. The other thing that I love about them, they let us bring my mom and dad’s own bed into the nursing home.

My mother was a patient in Woodmont and in Bowling green back in 2012- 2013 and wow the team that they have running the place now is top notch. I'm a retired Colonel in the Marine Corp and I have high expectations. I thought my mother was in the Hampton Inn. They have a dining area for just rehab patients and they have someone there serving you like you were in a restaurant "and the food was better than my mothers cooking". I went in the dining room last weeks and they were actually serving ribs! Can you believe it..... Her room was renovated- TV's on the wall, ceramic tile in the bathroom, freshly painted, new curtains and shiny floors and you cant beat that southern hospitality!!! Tara in Admissions was great and she told me to go see the other buildings closer to me in Fredericksburg and come see here last and I'm glad I did "save the best for last"! I loved watching HGTV and the history channel when I visited my moms room. I can't say enough about the team there- they got momma back home walking. Josh, Beth, lucielle and Steve in rehab was great. I trust them with my mom after visiting Carriage Hill and Woodmont... I wasn't impressed with them at all... I asked the Discharge planner in the hospital where would she send her mom and she said Bowling Green 1st and it was worth the 25 minute drive from my home.

Amazing nurses kept me well informed of my care. Everyone showed genuine care and concern for me. Even the cooks came down to see how I liked my food. All my medicine carried over from the hospital without a problem. All that is southern hospitality with health care competence at its best!

My sister was admitted a month ago. During that month she was not given thyroid meds she has been on for years. Anyone with medical back ground knows how critical a problem this is. She got sick and layed in bed for nearly 24 hours vomiting and running a fever of 102. None of the staff ever called to let us know she was ill. Upon "insisting" she be taken to the hospital, we were told there has to be a Dr order in place first. Now she is at Mary Washing with a blood clot in her lung and Pneumonia. Since this, the rehab center has informed us that in order to hold my sister's bed, we have to pay an additional $263.00 per day in addition to the insurance payment. Seems to me they are more concerned about the income than the well being of the patients. I wish we had other alternatives. Further more the med list Bowling Green Rehab sent to Mary Washington , listed medications she is highly allergic to, as being "not allergic". If you care about your loved one, don't put them in this facility.

Great place to have loved ones to stay in if you can visit daily. Very clean, offer 24 hour staff (CNA and head Nurse). Very nice look and feel, may be do to being a small place. Offer single and double rooms. Very nice game room and lunch room. Clients seemed well groomed. Just a little concern about shortage of CNA staff.

My mother lived at this facility for several months after being released from the Mary Washington Hospital. It's tucked away in the tiny town of Bowling Green.

The facility was clean and well kept, the staff was friendly and helpful. I didn't worry about my mother's care while she was there.

The rooms are rather small, and my mom had to share her room with another patient. I'm unsure if single rooms are available.

The facility didn't have any "extras." The room didn't have a TV, however we were allowed to bring in a small one from home. The rooms had a very basic "institutional look" similar to a dorm room very plain but clean and sufficient.

Resident laundry is done by staff onsite, we were pleased with the service, no missing items. There is also a dining facility onsite, my mother enjoyed this amenity.
