When Integrity Healthcare Communities rolled out new branding for ZOOM Revved Up Rehab, we knew every facility would have wonderful success stories to tell. IHC of Herrin is well known for providing excellent care, and the facility has now become well known for providing excellent short-term stays for accelerated rehab. Just read these two stories and you’ll know why families have grown to depend upon IHC of Herrin when their loved ones need rehabilitation after an accident, after surgery or after a stroke.
“Tears of joy were shed today as we said goodbye to this wonderful couple. In December 2016, they were involved in a horrible car crash. Their lives, and their dog’s life, were spared but they were left unable to walk or do anything for themselves. They were totally dependent on our staff for care. Mrs. Conaway states that it was a bit rough here in the beginning but not for very long. The staff was there for each and every need they had and they did it with a smile on their face! After a few months of our “Zoom” therapy program, they are able to walk and return home with family. We are able to hold on to the great memories the staff and the Conaway’s share, and it pleases us to know we did our part in helping this wonderful couple return to the community. Now that’s Integrity!! That’s the way we do things at Integrity Healthcare of Herrin!”
“Mr. Ervin is the perfect example of success! He has been in and out of nursing homes for 5+ years. When he transferred to us almost two years ago, he was in a Geri-chair and dependent on staff for everything except eating. He thought that being a double amputee, this (nursing home) was as good as it gets. I am pleased to say that with motivation from the staff and therapy, Mr. Ervin is able to do so much more for himself that he is able to move into his own apartment at the lovely Prairie Living Assisted Living. It was a bitter sweet event as he felt it was “unreal” and would soon wake up from a dream. After getting situated in his new home he stated, “There is a difference between existing and living. Now, with the help of you all, I’m going to LIVE!” Best of luck and good wishes to Mr. Ervin and his new life.”
