What our patients and their families are saying

“I have been to Village Crest five times now, and every time I’m there it is truly a great experience. This facility makes you feel welcomed and taken care of. I can’t say enough good things about this center.”

— Geraldine Stokes

"The nurses responded quickly to my needs and always with a positive attitude. The Activities Director and her assistants made my stay interesting by providing programs that created stimulation and interaction with other residents. At Village Crest I was truly treated as a human being and not just a 'number.' I would wholeheartedly and highly recommend to anyone in need of care to go to Village Crest Rehab Center"

— Fran L. Smith

"I have been to Village Crest in the past. I enjoyed my last stay and wanted to come back. The nursing staff has been awesome. PT and OT are good. They are very accommodating. They do not push too hard. I would rather do physical therapy at VC than anywhere else. I would recommend VC to everyone."

— Kimberley Hall

My husband had previously been a rehab patient at Village Crest after hip replacement. Nurses, CNA’s and aides are all kind and compassionate. Always pleasant when needed and presented with a happy, smiling face. Always willing to help me. My 'ambassador' always asked if everything was fine and listened to me. Carolyn checked on housekeeping regularly. Physical and Occupational Therapy staff always happy and cheery. Village Crest is a great place to visit and stay when help is needed. A great, pleasant experience while I recuperated from knee surgery.

I was here once before and treated well. My wife has been here several times. All the aides are tremendously helpful. Everyone is very pleasant. Roni, Chris, Megan, and Stephanie are all great. The whole therapy team are really great people. Nursing has really helped with the swelling of my feet. I would like to have met everyone on different circumstances, but if it has to be this way, I choose Village Crest.

Village Crest was recommended by my doctor, Demitri Ghecas, for my rehabilitation after a hospital stay. I'd like to especially thank Thessa (one of the aides) – she is so special. She gave me hope when I lost mine. Village Crest has wonderful people that care about the patients and their well-being. It's a clean, comfortable, friendly, open – a good place to be for progressive care.

— Susan Carrato

"After a recent hospitalization, I was fortunate to spend time rehabilitating at Village Crest. The entire staff, including management, nursing, therapy and housekeeping was not only professional, but courteous and helpful. It was wonderful to have a rehabiliation/nursing facility with such high standards in our community. Thank you Village Crest."

— Richard F. DePalma

I praise the whole team and infrastructure. CNA’s are wonderful, provided excellent care, always friendly and patient. Rehab personnel helped me from not being able to stand to now I can dance on my toes! Janice from housekeeping passes every day and says Hello Brenda! Every department made my stay.
