Being here at Saugus has helped me in many ways. I've learned a lot. When I first came here I wasn’t in that great of Shape. With my determination and that of the awesome angels in the pulmonary program, I have come back to the point we feel I should be at. It's nice to know you're all here.
I enjoyed working with Pam. She is very nice. Pam made sure that all the nurses gave me my treatments. Also made sure that the nurses put me on my c-pat medicine every night. If I needed anything she made sure I was taken care of.

I wanted to write and let you know how happy I was during my stay at Saugus. I felt as if this was my second home and I wish that I didn't have to leave. I hope nothing happens again, but if it does, I will definitely come back. The staff has been great. They have been there to help with anything I needed. Rehab was great too. I haven't felt this good in years. Thought I hope I never have to come back, I certainly will recommend Saugus.

I came here with a fracture in my right leg after a hit and run incident that left me unable to provide adequate care for myself. The physical therapy and occupational therapy I received, and the extra support from their rehab department, helped me make strides in the healing process. Social services worked extensively with agencies in the community to secure safe and more appropriate housing for me. After a short stay with Saugus I was able to give up my previously unsafe apartment and secure a new independent apartment.

I came here suffering from a fractured right hip and right shoulder. Because I lived independently in the community I was unable to return to my apartment. Upon admission, I had limited mobility and required a higher level of support. While I was at Saugus I received physical therapy and occupational therapy from the therapy department and they helped me excel in my recovery. Social services assisted me in paying bills and maintaining my apartment in the community, which upon completion of my successful therapy, I returned home to. I was set up with home health to assisted me with adjusting to my home in the community which allowed me to have a successful reintegration. With Deep Gratitude.

I came here after having had a stroke and was completely dependent on care. I had my own apartment in the community which I was unable to return to at the time due to my poor mobility and limited speech. While at Saugus I received physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy and improved drastically. I communicated clearly with staff, encouraged others and stayed positive about my own condition. Eventually I was able to use a wheelchair and move independently within the facility. Working with the social service team, I was able to return home with the assistance of home health, rent assistance, meals on wheels and the support of my family members.

Prior to my admission to RegalCare, I had just experienced a stroke and was in a wheelchair. I had impaired cognition and had limited use of my right upper extremity. I was unable to ambulate independently, as I had an extremely unsteady gait. I began working with the therapy department shortly after my arrival receiving physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Shortly after I began making leaps and bounds in my goals and before long I was ambulating with a cane. Social services worked with me regarding my relationships with others and reintegrating with the community and I currently volunteer at a local church, which I enjoy very much. I Enjoy the encouragement from staff and I am looking to return to the community in an assisted living capacity and begin a day program. I continue to reside at RegalCare and make exceptional strikes in my recovery. I am an active participant with my discharge planning and look forward to a discharge back to my community.
