Rehabilitation

When mother arrived at Seven acres she was a rehab patient that was scheduled to go back to her home in a few months. When it was time for her to leave, she wanted to stay at Seven Acres and when it was suggested that she move to another unit, she refused because she loved the unit she was in. Naturally your personnel in that unit had a great deal to do with her happiness (and ours).
