2 and a half months ago, I was given the daunting task of finding my younger brother a skilled nursing and rehab facility in the area after he was injured in a fall at home. I was overwhelmed with trying to find the right place for him. Our family had suffered a horrible ordeal when we had to place our dad in a facility (supposedly 5 star rated) and his and our experience there was as I said, horrible! All I could think about was, what if this happens again? What if I put him in a place that doesn't care for him and were uncaring to family as they were? I had no idea how the insurance worked, I had no idea about how any of this worked. At that point, I started calling facilities that were in his insurance network and the first call I made was to Friendswood Healthcare and Rehab. And thank goodness for that!!! My first contact on the phone was Amy, the Head nurse at the facility. She helped me thru so much, even a few tearful moments and she made me feel so good! Next, I talked to Cindy and set up an appointment for a tour and to meet the staff. I never looked at another facility! I saw the sincere way I was treated, so I felt in my heart that my brother would be treated the same way, and he was! Lauren and her rehab staff worked so diligently with my brother who came in unable to sit up, stand, much less walk in any! We thought that when he first came in there was no way he could possibly go back to his apartment where he lived alone. I thought we would be looking for an assisted living facility for him, and he was only 57 years old. He also could not swallow. He had to have a feeding tube while in the hospital and he transferred to Friendswood with the tube. But after the speech therapy, he graduated to soft foods, and before he left, he was and still is eating a regular diet!! I am telling you honestly that our family had so little hope for his future, and now we all have nothing but hope for his continuing success. After a couple of months of rehab and care at Friendswood Health Care and Rehab, he is back in his apartment (with daily care for some of his needs such as cleaning, bathing, etc) but he is living on his own, something we thought would never be possible again!! When my mom and I visited him, they not only cared about him genuinely, but we got hugs as well from staff!! Cindy, Lauren, Amy, Marilyn, and all the rehab and nursing staff...thank you from the bottom of our hearts! He has a second chance at life and you all helped to make that happen and for that, he and the family will be forever grateful! And thank you for always supporting me in learning the process and helping me sleep at night knowing he was so well taken care of! Yes, I would certainly recommend Friendswood Healthcare Center!!!
