BURIEN TESTIMONIALS

To Burien Nursing and Rehab Center,

I want to comment on the excellent staff that took care of my wife Eileen B. while she was a patient at your facility.

From the moment we got here, your care and concern was apparent. and it grew as time progressed. Eileen, I, and our daughters always felt free to talk and “kid” with the nurses, and with all the other staff. The helpfulness and interaction of all your folks, even if Eileen wasn’t their patient, was excellent. You all put a strong effort into getting Eileen back on her feet, but it was not to be. We have taken Eileen home to her familiar surroundings. But I am not sure that she will get the same great care and understanding which she got from you.

I wanted to say a special thank you to your kitchen/food staff. The food you served was always at a good temperature and very, very tasteful. Even Eileen, who tends to be somewhat picky, liked almost all of it and always wanted me to share it.

Also a great thank you to your physical therapy staff. Every one of their members befriended Eileen even to the point that she remembered some of their names.

How can I possibly express to all of you, each and everyone, who cared for Eileen, how much you mean to me. Thank you for your care, your concern and your patience!!! Thank you not only for your concern for Eileen but also for the many kindnesses you’ve shown to me and our daughters. I will miss my cup of mocha at lunch and dinner and the many other times I got it.

I will forever be grateful and will remember you always

With love and appreciation,

Heinz Gehlhaar

Thank you so much for being so kind and attentive to my husband during his stay in your facility. Everyone in your facility seems to revere the elderly people they care for. He can be very ornery and not follow instructions very well but the staff seemed to know how to get him to participate. The nursing staff and physicians were wonderful. Even the employees who cleaned the rooms and fixed things were so pleasant. He looked forward to having cocoa every morning and at lunch time too.

He made friends while he was there with other patients everyone wanted to sit at their lunch table because I usually had a special dessert for them. Your dining room is especially nice being so large and light.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you very much for the wonderful care of our dear father and husband. You are a top-notch facility with a very caring staff. We especially want to thank all the rehab staff. They made his day, every day. You are the best! We were very taken with the way you handled things and caring for us the day of his passing. We are missing him terribly but thank you for helping him and us through a very difficult time.

We would like to thank all of you at Burien Nursing and Rehab Center and those who directly helped our dad. Jennifer, Manjinder, Maria, Gonzalo, Sabrina, and the admission staff, the BINGO ladies and all who contribute to his care. You have made a great difference in his life. He is happy, healthier, grateful and optimistic all because of you. This is the stage in his life where we have seen him more content and entertained. BINGO and other games are his favorite activities and he talks about his many friends he has made here. We are so grateful to have found the most caring and professional place for my father. Jennifer thank you for the great words about our dad. Blessings to all and thank you for a great job.

Daughter of Patient

Burien Nursing and Rehabilitation Center cared for a long time friend of mine recently. She had a knee replacement and needed rehab. I visited her often throughout her stay and was there when she discharged to her home. Each time I went into see her, the staff was friendly – from the receptionist to the licensed nurses to the NACs. My friend loved her nurse and her main physical therapist. Her therapist gave her the encouragement she needed to do the hard work that it takes to get better. What I thought was particularly nice to see was the interaction between staff. They really care about each other and support each other. After my friend discharged home, the care manager called to make sure she had everything she needed. My friend did not always love the food but for the record she is very picky! They seemed to try to get her what she likes. There is always a certain amount of fear when choosing a nursing home. I’ve visited several good ones; this one just feels different. Clean, bright, and the staff are just so friendly!

My stay here has been most helpful and pleasurable. The staff have been very helpful and friendly. In particular, the therapy has been very personalized to my pre-existing needs and the ones I arrived with.

Recently, I was a patient at Burien Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. When I first arrived from Highline Hospital to your facility, I was confused and very much afraid not knowing where I was and why I was there. After a few days, I pretty much got my bearings and I was made comfortable by your staff. It impressed me that every department head, from the laundry to the Admin. Office, came to me and introduced themselves and asked if there was anything they could do for me. I am not used to such a positive attitude (this being the third time I had to be taught to walk again coming out of a coma.) I have been in more than one rehabilitation program, as well as extended stays in five different hospitals. Many of these places, I would not go back to. Never in my life have I ever been treated and cared for with such consideration and dedication to my recovery and personal goal achievements. One of the most impressive things about Burien Nursing and Rehab, is that my self-respect and dignity were very important to people that work there. By the end of my stay, I felt like I was a member of a large family.
