The staff at Epoch has been phenomenal. They have gone out of their way to be present every day in my mother's life, from physical care to encouraging her to engage in activities making a point of getting her out of her room. My family could not be happier!
Thank you so much for your kind comments. Each member of our team strives to provide all of our residents with the best care possible. Their health and happiness is our number one priority.
I recommend Epoch of Weston very, very highly. And I can’t say enough to thank the excellent folks in Rehab Unit. It has been 6 months since a traumatic fall resulted in 4 broken bones, surgery, and 10 weeks of Rehab in this wonderful facility. In retrospect, I realize how very well I was “cared for” and “cared about.”
Physically the facility is beautiful and clean. Cleaning products are odor free and there is a concerted effort to keep things clean and orderly. The carpeted dining room is lovely with table cloths and cloth napkins for lunch and dinner. We had wine glasses (filled with diet ginger ale or cranberry juice, mind you.) The menu was excellent and varied, repeating every 3 or 4 weeks, with sandwiches always available on request. They were able to accommodate my dietary needs with few errors. And fun trivia questions during Happy Hour…
The Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy services were excellent. Therapists were smart and skilled. I had both services 6 days a week! Although it was rigorous, I am sure the strength and awareness I gained made my return home much easier than it could have been. When questions or problems arose, the staff was quick to consult and come up with solutions.
The heart of any institution is the people. I was virtually helpless, and the wonderful people who helped me with my daily physical care made a big difference. By treating me with respect, they made the indignities of helplessness tolerable. From bed pans in the middle of the night to opening my cereal box on my breakfast tray, I am so very grateful.
Many of the staff have been at Epoch for many years and have a spiritual life. Experience counts and a life of service supported by spirituality couldn’t be stronger.
The nurses and supervisors were universally helpful and very skilled and even funny! I always felt that I could ask them for help and they would respond. And the Social Worker was quick, efficient and very kind when difficulty occurred.
I can’t discuss the other services at Epoch of Weston, but the staff often served on more than one floor. I’m sure the quality was equally strong in those areas. The one area of concern was a disagreeable smell when sitting on the patio in the summer. I understand that they are working on it.
This recommendation is my own opinion from having been in just one other rehab center following surgery. Epoch is head and shoulders above my previous experience. More importantly, other residents with years of accumulated rehab experience put Epoch of Weston at the very top.
I am very grateful for the care I received and the kindness of everyone I met. Thank you!
