I feel very fortunate that we have Vashon Community Care as a skilled nursing facility for rehabilitation after surgery. It has a dedicated team of therapists, nurses and aids.
The physical therapists are amazing and know exactly how to create an individualized therapy regime to insure best results. When a family member ends up in the hospital with a serious health issue that impacts basic physical functionality, it is a very distressing situation.
Our island facility is very professional, caring and knowledgeable. Most recently my husband landed in the hospital and started his post-surgery rehabilitation at a major facility in Seattle. The service was so poor that I pulled him out of the facility within a week. We were fortunate that VCC could take him, and within a few weeks he was on the road to recovery. Lonnie and her team, Carrie, Kathy and Kristy, knew exactly what to do to help him build his strength. After weeks in bed, he is finally standing and walking. It feels like a miracle. This therapy team rocks.
The aids and nurses are hard- working professionals that care about giving quality service. You’re not just another patient; you’re part of the family. They understand your needs and work hard to give you excellent care.
Why am I telling you this? I want you to know how lucky we are to have Vashon Community Care on Vashon and how important it is that we support this facility so it’s around for many years. I’m very thankful to a great team at VCC.
