My mother had open-heart surgery November of this year, at 83 years old. After her surgery she came to Lakeland for rehab. I cannot say enough about how great the rehab services were. Mindy, the director of the department, was especially kind to my mom. My mother says she met so many nice people, and wishes she could remember all of their names. She made it home for New Years, which means that she had to get back up on her feet in a relatively short period of time. The nursing staff helped my mom feel more like a family member than a “patient.” Nurse Tessa and nurses aide Barbara were just two of the many who took especially good care of my mom. Thank you all, and God bless you and your families. — Susan R.
