Granger Nursing and Rehab employs experienced, specialized, and caring nursing professionals to assist in caring for loved ones. Our Team takes responsibility for determining and recognizing residents’ goals and partnering with individuals to help each person improve and strive toward goal completion. Below are a few examples of success stories residents have achieved while at our community.
Margaret has been a resident at Granger Nursing and Rehab for 2 and a half years. When asked about her time at the facility, Margaret had this to say: “The CNAs are so caring and helpful- they even water my plants and fill the bird feeder outside of my window without being asked. When I lost my old roommate, I asked if I could room with one of my new friends that I made in the dining hall. We ended up being best friends and really care about each other. I know I can’t be home right now, but this is the best place I could be.” We are so happy to have Margaret in our community. Her smiles, jokes, and friendliness helps make our building feel more like home!
Alice S. came to Granger Nursing and Rehab at an assist of 1 level for all transfers and gait. Alice was willing to work with therapy to get better and become independent. Alice worked hard and became independent in the facility with her front wheeled walker. Alice reached all her goals and had a smile on her face while doing so.
Connie received 4 meals on the go today in her group home after successfully discharging from Granger Nursing and Rehab! She was very excited and grateful! Her son, who I spoke to this morning, said that this is a very nice program that we have in place.
“Before coming to Granger Nursing Home, I was living in Perry. I had my own apartment. What convinced me to come was how wonderful and nice everyone was on my tour. Which has continued since.
My favorite nurse has been Brooke, she is fantastic, caring, and a good-hearted person. One time I was having a rough day and started crying. When she saw, she came over and consoled me, and made me feel better about the situation.
The best time in my opinion is the nighttime, after a day filled with physical therapy, and activities. Its nice to have some quite time to allow me to write some poetry.”
