Patient at Brooklyn Center

I had a stroke, but after going to the hospital I thought I was ok to go back to my assisted living facility. I was wrong. I was there for just a day when I took a serious fall. I couldn’t stand on my own, and it became clear that I would have to go to a rehab facility. I was reluctant at first, but when I got there—Brooklyn Center—I was impressed. I expected a dark, depressing place, but this was like a five-star hotel. Bright spaces, great food, comfortable accommodations…not to mention the therapists. Today, I move more freely than I have for many years. The Brooklyn Center team—the whole experience—not only rehabilitated me, they made me feel ten years younger. Looking for the fountain of youth? It’s right in the middle of Brooklyn!

Derick Rawlins

Patient at Brooklyn Center

I took a bad fall and fractured my left hip. The pain was excruciating and I could hardly move. I had surgery to repair the hip, but that was just the beginning. It was going to take some time to recover and rehab, which meant I had to choose a facility with care. I couldn’t have made a better choice: Brooklyn Center. The staff here is wonderful—they treat me like family. The therapists were professional and compassionate; they got me moving within 24 hours of my admission. The kitchen did an amazing job personalizing my meals, and the activities were fun, lifting my spirits. I’m back on my feet, and I’ll be headed back home soon. But Brooklyn Center is an amazing place. The rooms and outdoor spaces are unbelievable. I call it Brooklyn Resorts Center!

Eliyahu Elkayam

Patient at Brooklyn Center

I was hit by a car, leaving me with fractures to my upper and lower extremities. I couldn’t lift my legs or arms; I couldn’t feed myself take care of any of my basic needs on my own. I began to heal at Jamaica Hospital, but it wasn’t until I transferred to Brooklyn Center that I began to feel whole again. As soon as I arrived, the staff made me feel welcome, and someone is always checking in on me, even when don’t call for assistance. The rooms and gyms are state-of-the-art, and the Glatt kosher food is very good.I want to thank the Brooklyn Center staff for the great experience I had here on the road to recovery. The Rehab staff, the nurse manager and assistant administrator all went above and beyond to make this challenging time as easy as it could possibly be. Thanks to all of them, I’ll be returning home, stronger than ever!

Leatrice Henriquez

Former Patient at Brooklyn Center

I had what the doctors at the hospital called comorbidities. In other words, multiple medical issues—open wounds, anemia, kidney failure and gastrointestinal bleeding. Needless to say, I was a complicated case, but the hospital said it was time to go to rehab. My husband did some research and chose Brooklyn Center. What a beautiful facility! All the rehab equipment is state-of-the-art, and everything is so contemporary and comfortable. But even more important, the staff was very caring and very professional. They went above and beyond to help me. My case might have been complicated, but their response was simple: do everything they could to make me better. I’m back home now, stronger than ever. I am forever grateful to my husband for choosing Brooklyn Center… and to the Brooklyn Center team for making me feel safe, secure and ultimately healthier and stronger.

Roger Shields

Resident at Brooklyn Center

I gave up. Life got the best of me. I’m not sure people understand what can happen to you when you suffer a serious stroke. I lost control of my muscles and bodily functions. I couldn’t talk, and parts of my memory were gone. Lying in the hospital bed, the first time I saw my own son, I didn’t recognize him. And when I finally did realize who he was, I thought: what good am I to him? I’m just going to be a burden on him his entire life. I came to Brooklyn Center convinced that I was on the road to nowhere. But the staff there knew better. They pushed all the right buttons. Don’t you want to run with your son again? Play catch with him? That hit home. They convinced me that I’d never know what I was capable of until I tried. It wasn’t easy—physical therapy six days a week, as well as speech therapy and occupational therapy—but it was working. It turned out that Brooklyn Center wasn’t the road to nowhere. It was the road to recovery. And it wasn’t the end of the line, it was the beginning of a new one. When I left the hospital, the doctors said I might walk in three to five years…maybe. I’ve spent a year at Brooklyn Center, and I’m being discharged—walking out of here. First thing I’m going to do is put on a glove and play catch with my son.
