What truly makes us unique is our people: our residents, their families and our staff. Below are written accounts from some of our own who help to make Lakeland a wonderful place to live.
"When I came to Lakeland I was very hesitant about being admitted to a nursing facility. Upon arrival my feelings quickly changed to relief. The staff was so helpful and friendly that I could not have asked for more. With the excellent physical and occupational therapy that I received at Lakeland I am now able to move my left arm and hand which I have not been able to do in six years since my stroke. Everyone here is so wonderful and understanding. I really feel that there is no better place to go."

"I desperately needed knee replacement surgery, but I knew that I would not be able to adequately care for myself at home and get enough physical therapy to fully recuperate. Lakeland Rehab. and Health Care Center is a Godsend to the community. The “Entire” wonderful staff makes a person feel grateful to be alive and the therapy allows you to heal and return home. The staff and therapy department is very knowledgeable and eager to encourage and reassure you with honesty. They are joyful and fun to be around and their special quality of caring compassion pulls you through a rough day with a smile on your face. They all give much more than 100% and you can feel how very much they care for you and want to help you reach your goal of returning home strong and able to continue your progress. Thank you so very much."
