“This is my first time at Heritage Park.  Everybody treated me wonderfully.  The Nurses and Aides were wonderful.  I’ve come a long way since I’ve been here.  Heritage Park is a wonderful place to recover.  I would recommend it to anybody!”

Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures and acknowledging everything that you receive.  It means learning to live your life as if everything were a miracle and being aware on a continuous basis of how much you’ve been given.  Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present.  In addition, behavioral and psychological research has shown the surprising life improvements that can stem from the practice of gratitude.  Giving thanks makes people happier and more resilient, it strengthens relationships and improves health and it even reduces stress.

“I loved Heritage Park and I’m telling everybody that I’d go back there in a minute if I had to.  I had a fabulous experience…the staff, the room, the food.  I even gained three pounds!”

~Betty C., Rehab Resident (Rehab to Home in 18 Days)

 

“When I came in, I was flat on my back and had very little knowledge of where I was.  I just celebrated my 97th birthday at Heritage Park and I’m grateful for the development and progress that I’ve made here.  Now, I am doing four laps around the building before 8:00am!”

~J.M., Resident

“I have experienced both outpatient and inpatient therapy programs at several facilities over the past three years, including a hospital rehabilitation unit and I can honestly say that Heritage Park has a more congenial and upbeat setting.  The best thing about Heritage Park is that they were able to accomodate my outings and I was still able to maintain my independence.  I will continue my treatment at Heritage Park with Outpatient Therapy three days a week for continuity of care.  I look forward to working with my same Therapists, Karla Van Beek, M.S., OTR and Dr. Farha E. Parker, PT, DPT, CHC until I reach my goals set forth.”

On Tuesday, July 22nd, The Bradenton Herald featured our Resident, Mrs. Irene Lerner’s story on the front page of the Local/Business section.  It just goes to show that everybody loves a “Feel Good” story.  Heritage Park … Making Memories!

Bradenton Herald Story

On Sunday, July 6, 2014, Mr. and Mrs. Lerner’s daughter, Sandi, was married in Chicago. One week prior to the wedding, Sandi was visiting her parents in Bradenton when her mother unexpectedly fell ill.

During Mrs. Lerner’s hospitalization and rehabilitation at Heritage Park Care and Rehabilitation Center, it became clear that the Lerners would be unable to attend Sandi’s wedding.  Being tech savvy, Sandi and the staff at Heritage Park coordinated a FaceTime session so Mr. and Mrs. Lerner and three close friends in Bradenton, FL could be a part of the celebration in Chicago, IL.

“Never in my lifetime did I ever think something like this was possible,” Mr. Lerner said. “We had front row seats without even being there. Pretty amazing!”

About 180 attendees were at Sandi’s wedding, watching Mr. and Mrs. Lerner being broadcasted throughout the ceremony as the Lerners were watching them. There was not a dry eye in the house as the Lerners witnessed and participated in one of the most important days of their only daughter’s life.

Mrs. Lerner stated, “Without the Heritage Park folks, their abilities and most importantly their passion, this would have never happened.  For them, we are truly grateful.”
