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.”

– Kim Becker, Director of Business Development

“The Nursing Staff and Therapy Department at Heritage Park was excellent and very helpful.  They made my recovery process much easier and my return to home much quicker.”

Trish I., Rehab Resident

“My Mother had a quality experience at Heritage Park.  Every nice compliment we had heard about Heritage Park was absolutely warranted and more.  Ya’ll did good!”

Mrs. Norma Dyer arrived at Heritage Park Care & Rehabilitation Center on June 4, 2014.  Her projected discharge date was planned for July 4th.  Due to the exceptional care she received while in the ExceleratedCARE Unit, she was able to return home on June 23rd…12 days early! Mr. Dyer accompanied his Wife during her therapy sessions approximately 90% of the time.  He stated that her Therapists, Lorelei Helgeson, PT and Joel Gelongo, PTA always listened attentively, exuded empathy towards Norma and always projected a smile.  Mr. and Mrs. Dyer both agreed it was evident that Lorelei and Joel have a true passion for helping others. Mr. Dyer stated that the staff at Heritage Park, including the Nurses far exceeded their expectations.  “Keep up the good work.  A smile goes a long way.”

Bogart 2“After my knee replacement surgery, I was fearful about my next step.  I could barely walk and I knew that I needed more help.  My Physician, Dr. Diego Ramos, M.D. from Intercoastal Medical Group, referred me to Heritage Park Care & Rehab.  It was close to home and convenient for my Wife to visit.  Not being educated on rehabilitation centers, I trusted his recommendation.
