This place is amazing and it is because of the people here. It begins with the staff. Through their patience caring and understanding, the transition for my aunt was possible. Change is hard for the elderly and for us, we need someone we can really trust with the care of our loved ones.
You will understand once in you get the pleasure of meeting the warm staff, including the resident dog, Prince.
An old friend of mine recommended Shuksan because of the experience he and his mother had. In a few words, the nurses are like family. They treated us like their own family.
From the front desk to the food servers I see caring for the residents here. I don't think I could have made a better decision for the care of my aunt. This is not a place to park someone, this is an opportunity to stay involved and be in a special healing environment with your loved one. You will want to visit. Pets are welcome. Private rehabilitation rooms were hard to find, but here the rehab rooms are all private.
There is a garden and fresh flowers seem to be all over.
I've been told that it's also a very special thing that they keep the therapy team on staff rather than subcontracting through agencies. It was clearly a benefit to getting her constant one on one attention with the same team.
You really are not supposed to enjoy being in a rehab facility/ nursing home.... but honestly, we did. Thank you Shuksan Staff... you are family to us now!
I had fallen at home and ended up at St Joseph Hospital. The physician told me that I needed some rehabilitation prior to going home. At the time, I was relieved and happy to go to rehab so I could regain my strength and get back to my normal self. I ended up choosing Shuksan Healthcare because it was close to my family and I had heard good things. I am so glad that I did! The nurses were excellent during my stay.
They were all knowledgeable and helpful which I was expecting. I was not expecting how kind and genuinely friendly they were. They would walk into my room and would absolutely light up my day. I felt that the therapy was top notch. They took the time to explain what was going on inside my body and how I was building strength. The whole team never let me get off easy but also knew my limits so I always felt safe. They believed in me which made me believe in myself. I had an overall feeling of being comfortable and cared for during my stay at Shuksan. It sincerely felt good to be there.
I would recommend Shuksan to anyone in the community looking for a place for rehabilitation after being in the hospital.
Hi! I’m Barbara Anderson and this is my husband Bob. We have both been to Shuksan Healthcare at different times after recovering from surgery at St Joseph Hospital. I had surgery on both of my knees and Bob has had back surgery and knee surgery as well. As you can imagine, Bob and I both were not excited at the prospect of going to a nursing home for rehabilitation after being in the hospital.
Naturally, we wanted to return home but it was evident that was not going to be an option. We ended up choosing Shuksan Healthcare and we are so happy that we did. We both love the animals at Shuksan. It really makes the place feel like a home. I know that our great grandchildren especially appreciated it when they would come to visit. Bob and I both have really grown to love the therapy team at Shuksan.
We always felt very comfortable and like we were with the right professionals who knew what exercises we needed to meet our goal of returning home. Bob also loved the food, maybe even more than my own cooking! He says even the oatmeal is good. We both looked forward to getting our fresh baked bread delivered daily by Nancy in activities. Bob and I are very active at Christ the Servant Lutheran Church and we have recommended Shuksan to everyone there, but we want recommend Shuksan Healthcare to anyone in the community in need of rehabilitation after a surgery or hospitalization.
