Nursing Homes in Houston Residents Discuss Why Treemont Nursing and Rehab?
Treemont has a full range of services all on one campus: Nursing & Rehab, Assisted and Independent Living. Residents who have a health setback, a hip or femur fracture, a heart attack or UTI, often go to the Treemont Health Care Center (HCC) for care. What sets Treemont HCC apart is its top notch therapy team that helps resident recovery, helping them get healthy, independent and return home. Residents who work hard and achieve their rehab goals are acknowledged in a Certificate of Rehab Achievement Ceremony. Here’s what nursing homes in Houston residents say about their rehab experience.
Vivian: I went to Treemont Healthcare after I had a total knee put in. The physical therapy staff is unbelievable. They make PT fun. When I came back home to Treemont my transition was easy.
Dorsie: They were very thoughtful and really nice. They helped me bathe every day and saw to it that I got my medications. My food was served; I could eat anything I wanted. My transition back was really easy. I like going back to the Healthcare Center because they treat me like family.
Tommi: I fell and broke my hip, so I went to the hospital and they glued me back together. I was treated well in the Healthcare Center. I’ve been in therapy learning to walk again and successfully returned to Treemont Independent Living.
Marjorie: I got my rehab at Treemont. The staff that help you there at Treemont are very well educated and have patience, love and kindness. It’s like Jesus comes down from the mountain and he says walk and I feel like that’s what happens in Treemont rehab.
Shirley: I was in the Treemont Health Center, and it was superb. I went there because I had a stroke. The doctors were wonderful; the nurses were very sympathetic and well-trained. It was a wonderful stay over there.. I highly recommend it to anyone that needs medical care.
Chuck: Our experience has been outstanding. And beyond just the day-to-day care is the availability of rehab center. There is the physical exercise part of it and there's a psychology aspect to it, too, that I think is probably the more personal part of the job. To sum the whole thing up, my experience has been that this is a people place, both the independent living and the healthcare center, and I've never known a director to be so personally involved in the healthcare center.

Gene: We found the staff to be very accommodating to my wife Patricia who had dementia. There were activities.There were church services, sing-alongs, bingo, They just did all they could to make life pleasant for her. The staff just adored her. Our experience would not have been the same had the staff not been as helpful.
Residents often come to Treemont with hip and femur fractures, without the capability to bear weight or stand on their own. The primarily goal of the nursing Therapy Team, which includes physical, occupational and speech therapists, is to strengthen the resident so they can return to walking on their own and even return home. “The only way our residents will get better is if we make therapy fun and encourage residents to complete their daily regimen,” says Jobert Macas, head of Treemont’s therapy group. “Often our residents don’t realize what they’re doing is actually therapy. We use our creativity to make sure they complete their exercises so they can get better.
