“I had the pleasure of enjoying Orchard Hill for the second time recently and I must say, it was just as good as the first time. The activities offered were enjoyable and engaging, and the admissions department was extremely helpful throughout the process. The staff, rehab, and nursing were all very kind and accommodating, making me feel right at home. One of the things I love about this facility is the fact that residents are free to roam and have visitors 24/7, which really adds to the sense of community and connectedness. Overall, I highly recommend this facility to anyone looking for a supportive, friendly, and welcoming environment.”

– EIrving Garrett Jr.

“Our nearly 86-year old father was taken to Orchard Hill Rehab Center after suffering a stroke on New Year’s Day. Although my father suffered no physical impairment due to the stroke, at the time of his admittance, he was not able to speak more than 2-3 words at a time nor able to write. The Orchard Hill therapists did an amazing job working with our father. In no time at all, he was able to communicate with us using nearly complete sentences and was able to write his name and address. This was a huge relief to us. We were also impressed with the way every single staff member interacted with us. Each one was very welcoming and greeted us very warmly. We could tell that Orchard Hill Rehab Center is managed very well. Our dad’s social worker (Sherry) took great care of him. She made dad feel comfortable during his stay. Sherry saw to it that our very quiet father was moved to another room due to his non-stop screaming roommate. Dad was paired with a very nice quiet gentleman with a similar personality. He was much happier after this move. My sisters and I were very happy that we chose Orchard Hill Rehab Center for our father. This was a new experience for him (and us) and we couldn’t have done any better with our choice. Keep up the great work at Orchard Hill!”

I Am Grateful For The Friendly Atmosphere!
“My stay at Orchard Hill was such a great experience! Sandy in PT and Nurse Camille were my absolute favorites! The staff here treats you like a close friend and I was grateful for the friendly atmosphere they have. Ellen, the Admissions Director, was amazing! She was always checking in on me every day and even though she was always extremely busy she would stop to help me with the smallest of things such as ordering from my favorite takeout place. It’s those small details that make Orchard Hill better than the rest!”

– Gregory Hart

I truly will miss the staff.

– Herman Lawson

“My stay has been a GREAT experience. Everyone takes care of me and always comes to check on me – when I ring the bell, someone always comes in running. Everyone makes me feel like family and it is a very friendly atmosphere. Since I don’t have my family coming to see me, I feel very welcomed here and like a member of a family. Orchard Hill is an amazing facility. Even as busy as they are, the nurses or GNAs come into my room and attend to me like I am the only patient they have. That’s what makes this facility so spectacular! The renovations here are amazing and everyone helps each other and that’s very important. PT and RT are amazing! They push me just enough because they want me to get better and understand how my body works better. RT Emeka, PTs Mary, Grace, and Nate always tell me the goal of what they want me to accomplish. They also help me with things I can do when I go home. I am always encouraged and never forced to do activities which makes me want to push myself even harder. If I will ever be in this situation again, I would love to come back to this facility to get the help I need because everyone has my back.”

– Frankie Johnson

“My stay in the facility has been great. My nurses and GNA/CNAs have been very helpful to me and assisted me with my needs. I really like the GNAs and CNAs and how hard they work – they are always on top of their game. OT is great because I get to play games every morning for half an hour and it is the highlight of my day. PT is great, I love the exercises that they come up with for me and after exercising, I get a prize for doing a great job!
Thank you for everything!”

– Elaine Cockroft

“The therapy team at Orchard Hill has been absolutely amazing and I cannot begin to thank them enough. The therapists Mary-Grace, Mona, Tiffany, Miriam and Steve are astounding! My abilities with my legs and upper body have improved 500% since my stay here. Not only can I walk long distances but I can also feed myself which I could not do before I came to Orchard Hill.”

– Robert Ahlfeldt

“This is my second time at Orchard Hill and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. The facility is always clean and the renovations are stunning! Not only is the building charming, but so is the staff. The therapists work with you and make sure that the patient comes first. The nurses take the time to come and talk to you, and it shows that they truly care. Their kindness and concern for my progress has been very heartwarming.”

– Joyce Seawright

The nurses are exceptionally good and all of the therapists we have worked with are very knowledgeable. I would come back to Orchard Hill in a second. I can’t expect we could get better treatment at any other facility. We are glad to go home but we will definitely miss all of the people we’ve come in contact with while here.”

To Everyone at Orchard Hill,
Thank you for all of your kindness, patience, and professionalism. From the moment Joy greeted us to the goodbye hug from Camille, we were treated with gracious respect.

“I am pleased to give this testimonial on behalf of Orchard Hill. I want everyone to know how wonderful this facility is. From the nurses and their quick response time, to the rehab staff that keeps me motivated on my toughest days, I am so grateful to be here. The dining room sta members are always friendly and accommodating to my wants and needs. The food is good and I always appreciate the fact that they have snacks available for when I am hungry outside of mealtimes. Rehab, even though it is hard, keeps me motivated. I appreciate them and feel that they are always rooting for me.
I would come back to Orchard Hill, again and again, it really is a wonderful place.

– Wanda Raymond

“When I picked Orchard Hill I knew it was going to be a good place. I had several places to choose from and I am so glad I came here. The location is convenient, the food is delicious, the rehab services are great and the staff members are attentive and responsive. Therapy got me to where I needed to be to go home and I am very thankful for everything this facility has been able to do for me. I am excited to go home but I will miss the residents and staff members very much. If I ever need therapy services again, I will definitely be coming back here. I strongly recommend Orchard Hill to all of my family and friends!”


Shirley Bonkowski Testimonial“When I first came to Orchard Hill I didn’t know what to expect. I couldn’t walk and I had very little expectations. After my first day at Orchard Hill, Jason, the administrator, found out it was my birthday and surprised me with a party consisting of balloons and cupcakes. I have formed a lot of good relationships with the staff here especially Cindy, Tiffany, and Amanda from therapy. The food is good, I’ve managed to gain back the weight that I lost, the facility is clean and the employees go above and beyond to help me.”

Joy Goldberger Testimonial“I am on my way out of Orchard Hill rehab and I am so happy to be going home. There are treasures here at Orchard Hill. I don’t think there is a place that tries harder than this place did to accommodate me. Even in my states of frustration of wanting to get the most out of my body, they tried with me as much as anybody could’ve. They also went above and beyond to accommodate my Kosher diet needs. I am leaving here sorry that there are people I won’t be seeing anymore. This is a good place.”

– Joy Goldberger

Thomas Brunson Testimonial“The staff members at Orchard Hill are nice and attentive. Since being at Orchard Hill I am able to stand, walk long distances and have been building up my endurance. Amanda, Tiffany and Miriam from therapy were all especially helpful. They’ve take care of everything for me while I’ve been here. I am glad everything has worked out and I am able to go back home. Orchard Hill is a good place to be . . . I can’t say anything bad about it.”

– Thomas Brunson

Spann Testimonial“I came to Orchard Hill about two months ago. I was in really bad shape, unable to sit, stand or walk. I needed therapy and 24-hour care to do just about everything. The staff at Orchard Hill is very caring. The therapists have made my recovery enjoyable and I felt very cared for during my stay. I worked really hard in therapy and now I am able to go home with my family.”

– Keith Spann

Gibson Testimonial“The staff members at Orchard Hill aren’t just here to do a job, they’re here because they really care about their patients. One day I was sick, the staff came in one at a time just to listen and make sure I was okay. Mary Grace, Amanda, Cindy, and Trisha made me feel so good and lifted my spirit, even though I was feeling so bad. They didn’t have to take the time out of their day to check on me, but they did, and it made me feel special. If I didn’t love them before, I really loved them then! The next day I was right back in therapy knowing they were there to support me. It was amazing. The minute they walk into my room, they bring the sunshine with them. I love Orchard Hill because the people who work here are human and they really care about me.”

– Michele Gibson

“My first and only experience at a rehab center has exceeded my expectations! The staff at Orchard Hill has been warm and inviting since I arrived. As a first-time rehab patient, I wasn’t sure what to expect upon admission, but from the housekeeping staff, Nurses, GNAs, and all the therapists I always felt welcome, and that the staff really wanted to get to know me. They always remembered my love for chocolate! Working with the therapists throughout my stay has made me feel strong enough to go home without any fears. They made working on simple tasks that were hard for me in the beginning easy, by working with me and getting to know me! The encouragement from the PT/OT staff really meant a lot to me, they were able to help me realize I could do a lot more than I thought! If I had to go somewhere for rehab, this is the place to be!

– Sandra Thillman

“I like the way I am being treated by the nursing staff. I find the PT/OT staff to be very good at what they do & they are helping me reach my goals. I will recommend that the VA send more veterans to this facility as the center is in a great location with a variety of activities to keep veterans engaged in great socialization opportunities. Also, the ability to have leave to visit family if they are well enough to do so is an added benefit.”
