    From the mother of an Isabella short-stay rehabilitation resident:

    “Sincerely, words cannot express the deep appreciation I feel for the care and attention directed to my son, Alfred, while he was under the care of your rehabilitation staff. I witnessed, day after day, concern, patience and skill of the staff in getting his trust to a level where he steeled himself to follow directions to take the first step, then the next and the next. One could actually see that their wholehearted pleasure in his efforts buoyed up his resolve to improve to the point where he could return home. It goes without saying that the staff was not only very competent, but their concern and solicitude were appropriately in evidence.”
