What our patients and their families are saying

“My stay has been good and the care has been great!”

— Annabell Zausner

It was impressive to witness so many hardworking therapists and helping people. Your center goal is health & rehabilitation and it is the first priority. It has been accomplished and met well. Most of your therapists were excellent professionals and hardworking people. I was quite impressed. During the rehabilitation period, I, myself, felt progress and improvement on my foot every day. We are all proud of the Sands Point Health and Rehabilitation Center in our community. The center utilizes available resources in the community such as churches, schools, Jewish centers, and other interested groups, organizations, etc. It has been a great experience for me and I'm proud of the center- a model center. I appreciation what the center did for me. Thank you very much. I'm on the way to a smooth recovery.

"My 89 year old mother has been at the Sands Point Center for the past two years and we couldn't be happier. She requires assistance with most day to day activities as well as skilled nursing care. The staff has done an outstanding job in all cases. They are some of the most loving, caring people I've ever met, as well as being consummate professionals. The food choices at the Center are excellent and the residents are offered numerous activities to keep them busy. We moved out of the NY area last year and stay in touch over the phone and with visits 2-3 times a month. No matter when we get there, and we often come unannounced, everything is as it should be. I would not hesitate to highly recommend the Sand Point Center to anyone in need of the services they provide."

"Based on my mother’s experience at Sands Point I would like to commend you for having caring staff. My mother found your faculty to be very accommodating and she enjoyed the meals. She does not eat fish or pork and they adjusted her menu to encourage her with what she enjoys like a burger or grilled cheese. Over all the staff are what made it a good experience here from the cleaning staff to the direct care staff. On behalf of my mother I would like to recognize both Vivian and Faye who cared for her on days and evenings. Wonderful and caring ladies!"

“The staff at Sands Point was very competent. They are very experienced and confident in what they do. They went beyond to ensure that I had a pleasant stay.”

— Chris Carrol

We were grateful to have found Sands Point and appreciate the care and support we received while Mom was there. Kelly, the social worker, was extremely kind and helpful. She was never too busy to listen to me and quickly found ways to help Mom be more comfortable. I have found solace knowing that she had visits from the hospice nurses, the aide, and the priest, Father Hyacinth. There were many people at Sands Points who helped us during the last year. We appreciate all that was done to make her final months as stress-free and comfortable as possible.
