“To whom it may concern, I would like to bring to your attention a CNA on your staff, Aminata. I have been a patient here for 3 weeks and have complex needs. Aminata has been caring for me since my admission. She is caring, empathetic and passionate about her work. Her skills are excellent, and she follows through on everything. On days I felt sad and cried, she encouraged me to go on. I have never felt so well taken care of and trusted someone to help me as I do with Aminata. I would like her to be recognized somehow for the wonderful person she is and the exemplary job she does. Sincerely,”

“I came to Briarwood for the second time, needing short-term rehab, and would love to extend my deepest gratitude to your nursing staff and therapy team. From the quality of care to the kindness and compassion I received from your clinical staff, I will always choose you! My family and I could not be more thankful for the care that was beautifully provided!”

“I would like to extend my appreciation to Briarwood – the nurses, aides and therapists. They were all so wonderful, attentive and supportive. The staff’s upbeat attitudes and humor made my stay at Briarwood more enjoyable. The care has been excellent! Nurses are always very helpful and friendly. I very much like them all and would choose Briarwood every time. The whole place is great, workers and everyone. Thanks for your love. I would recommend you to everybody.”

“Having elderly parents and in-laws, I certainly have learned my way between ER, rehabs, skilled nursing and assisted living. The staff (here) is absolutely amazing. Particularly Nilton, who is my mother-in-law’s aide. They all greet you with a smile and couldn’t be more helpful in assisting you with whatever you need. She’s clean and seems content. Typically, at rehab they have a family meeting with OT and PT to let you know the plan, and then weekly meetings to keep you updated on her progress. Overall, it’s been a surprisingly good experience.”

“Everyone was wonderful here, especially the nursing staff, and the respiratory therapist, with her constant check-ins throughout my stay. Now I am able to go back home safely, and she also helped me set up my oxygen equipment and made sure it’ll be all set and ready by the time I get discharged to my house. Would definitely recommend the pulmonary program here.”
