NEW YORK (Reuters) - Advancements in dentistry make it more likely that older adults will keep their teeth longer, which means ongoing oral health care is essential, a new study says. Unfortunately, it's not unusual for the frail and elderly to have poor oral hygiene.
The staff at Ludlowe Center is committed to providing the highest quality nursing and rehabilitative care to our patients and residents. This group of highly trained professionals strive to meet the patients' medical and short-term rehabilitation needs, all while providing the highest quality of care while maximizing the functional independence of each person we serve.
Our Dad was in your center for rehab on two occasions and we sent individual "thank you" notes to staff on the floors (1st and 4th) where he received care, as well as Debbie in Social Services. We wanted to send an overall "Thank You" to everyone at Ludlowe Center from our family to say we appreciate all of the kind, compassionate care he (and our entire family received) while he was there. Everyone treated him (and all of us) with dignity and exceptional care!
"There are times when a family cannot adequately care for a parent and must turn over the task to those who are more able. When my mom was admitted we felt confident that she would be able to return home after the usual 20 days of therapy. It became apparent that she could no longer live independently and we had to make a hard decision, but there was much relief when we learned of the good caregiving situation at Ludlowe. We are all so very grateful."
"My sincerest thanks to Ludlowe for your excellent care. My father entered the center after a grievous five weeks in the hospital. Faced with many health-related difficulties, it would take some sort of miracle to build back his strength. Fortunately, within a few short weeks, that miracle happened due to the wonderful staff at Ludlowe. The constant care made him better able to endure his situation and keep his focus on his recovery and he regained his ability to sit up, stand and eventually walk on his own again."
"I am writing this note to let everyone know how much I enjoyed being at Ludlowe Center for Health and Rehabilitation. Everyone was so nice and courteous. All I can say is thank you so much."
