Kudos to RMH

RUSHVILLE — Dear Editor:

Recently I had knee replacement surgery. After spending three days in the hospital, I went to Millers Merry Manor in Rushville for eight days for physical therapy. I didn't like the reason for which I had to be there, but I am glad now for the experience I had.

My eyes were opened on how a terrific nursing home and rehab department operates. The attention from all the nurses was terrific. They were right there every time I had to hit the light for help or I had questions.

Millers Merry Manor is decorated in a manor that makes one feel more comfortable and not feel like you are in an institution or a hospital. My room was clean and decorated nicely. It was very comfortable to be in. When I did my three or four times a day walk around the manor all of the staff said, "Hello" and "How are you?" Everyone smiles. It was great to see how all the nurses talked to and treated all the patients in the nursing home. They had so much compassion for everyone.

Best of all were the therapists. They were GREAT! All of them were there to help you and keep up your spirits. It was very hard at first, but they keep encouraging me and helping terrifically to get better able to get around and use my left leg. I would gladly recommend Millers Merry Manor for anyone who needs therapy as a great place to stay.
