Therapy

“My wife has been at Woodridge Health and Rehabilitation for a year.  Since her stroke, you were able to get her speech and swallow back to near normal.  She is improving in many ways due to the ongoing socialization and care provided.  Patients are out in the dining areas, garden area, or the hallways.  Loneliness does not occur at Woodridge like so many other facilities where patients are mostly kept in their rooms.  The nursing care is first rate; I should know because my wife was an RN and I am a practicing physician.  Thanks for all you do”.
