Annie Mullarkey Sawa
I wanted to send a note to thank the entire staff of Healthsouth Harmarville for the amazing care that my mother, Ellen Mullarkey received. My mom is 83 years old and recently had a hip replacement at Forbes Regional. She was initially upset that she was not able to do her rehabilitation there, and was reluctantly transferred to Healthsouth.
Her reluctance was immediately replaced with gratefulness with how kind the nurses, doctors and therapists were. My mom is deaf and was concerned that she would not be able to communicate with staff, so we equipped her with a dry erase board. She noted that no one was too busy to write messages to her.
As a wife, mother of five and grandmother of nine, she has been caring for people most of her life. What a thrill for her to not only be cared for during the two weeks of her rehabilitation, but to be made to feel special and valued. Again, my mother and entire family thank you for the genuine care and concern that she was shown.
She is recovering beautifully and hopes to take her place as the lead chef in preparing Thanksgiving dinner for our family of 25, without the pain that she has endured previously. Congratulations on the wonderful staff at Healthsouth Harmarville!
