Staff was very good to deal with, Physical premises were poor in many areas. I arrived to a broken bed, no TV and a room needing much work. Bedding was very old-sheet with hole, and stained. I wondered if the CEO would like to sleep on that for days!!! Food was good during the first week, but usually not so after for some reason.Fortunately for the Center they have very good nurses, therapists, ,CNAs and others employed. Heidi,the concierge, was very helpful in making my stay easier.The condition of the facility, other than the outdoor patio, is a definite distraction and reflection on your reputation! Patients and employees deserve better!!!

I had an accident and required time in rehab to get my strength back. 2 days before I left the hospital to go to rehab Simone from admissions came to see me. This gave me comfort before I went. While at Gardner Rehab the staff was outstanding. They were quick to take care of any needs I had. There are too many people to name but I want to thank the whole staff for their kindness. They all made a scary situation less scary. I highly recommend Gardner Rehab.

I am a retired nurse who spent most of my career working in nursing/rehab facilities. My friend was at gardner rehab after a hospitalization. I visited daily. Staff there were very attentive and kind. My only issue was the fact that the call lights were not working for the first couple of weeks she was there. The patients had bells they rang when nursing was needed and it would take awhile for the staff to find where it was coming from. I had no other concerns during her stay.

Efficient, Friendly and affable staff. The nursing staff and CNAs are quick to please. The rehabilitation personnel are insistent on doing it right. Staff such as Heidi The Concierge, is always there to assist. Please consider her, and others not named. For raises in salary. Promotions should such hierarchy exist. I am blessed by God Almighty to have chosen this facility to complete my physical therapy. With regards, I remain your humble servant. James Meagher

My mother has stayed at Gardner Rehab twice now after fracturing bones & falling ill, and they have done a phenomenal job of physically rehabbing her to return home. The staff are attentive & kind. I know that when my mother is unable to be safe in her own home, she is well cared for by the staff at Gardner Rehab. The food needs some improvement, but there are plenty of places nearby to order food from when the meals are lacking. As a nurse who has worked in many nursing homes over the past 25+ years, I definitely would recommend Gardner Rehab to anyone who requires skilled nursing care.

I cannot say enough regarding the care my husband received while at Gardner Rehab. When he arrived after being at another facility he had an open wound with an infection after having triple bypass. He was in very bad condition. The staff made sure he arrived at his appointments in Boston and Heywood Hospital wound care facility. He had a pump placed in the wound to pump out the infection and the staff made sure the wound was cleaned at specific times. I am very happy to say the PT and OT people were diligent in their task to getting my husband on his feet. We cannot say enough about all who cared for him and would not hesitate recommending Gardner, Mass Rehabilitation and Nursing.

Gardner Rebab & Nursing Center is a little slice of heaven here on earth! From the moment I walked in the door, I could sense a positive energy among the staff - from the administrator to the laundry person. The way that the nursing staff interact with each other was a beautiful thing to observe. The facility is pristine in its cleanliness and presentation. I was seen and heard and all of my concerns for my Mom were met. My Mom was only here for 5 days, but in that short time she was treated with dignity, respect and love like I've never experienced from people who didn't even know her. Jackie and Simone and all of the nursing staff (I don't remember all the names - I'm sorry) that I dealt with are at the top of their game in the way they do their job - I was treated with such love and compassion and there was always clear communication as to my Mom's situation. I would highly recommend this place for your loved ones!!

One would think going to a nuring home would be depressing and difficult but the entire staff was so warm and caring and responded to my mother's every need that it was actually enjoyable. Allowing dogs, which can be the greatest comfort, and having resident dog Jacques was a big plus. The activities department went above and beyond. I appreciate everyone of the staff who made my mother's last year a good one. The nurses and CNAs there are angles in disguise.

My Dad is currently at Gardner Rehab and it has been a great experience. All the staff has been extremely helpful and they really show that they care about the patients that are here. The services that they advertise are services that you actually receive and if your loved one has an appointment during the day off site, they still get their services, PT and OT for a couple of examples. My Dad isn’t the greatest with names, but always enjoys when Heidi, Luke, and Nicole are around! I know there are others, too!

First impressions are important, especially when a visitor is entering a nursing home, anxious about what to expect. Lisa, the receptionist at Gardner Rehab, sets that first impression, and she is warm, welcoming and very knowledgeable. Besides helping visitors, she greets residents by name as they pass her area and makes them feel truly at home. Lisa goes well beyond what one would expect in that position and helps coordinate transportation of residents' doctor and hospital visits. She is a much-welcoming presence to staff, residents and visitors. One of the best at Gardner Rehab!

My brother has been in the Gardener Rehab since March. The staff has consistently been responsive to his needs and their positivity has been a relief to our family. His nurse Jacklyn has been wonderful. She communicates effectively while giving feedback that supports his recovery going forward and has amazing patience!! That said, we know it takes a village so a wholehearted thank you also goes out to Julie, Anna, Patrick, “K”, and Santiago to name a few. Aside from the competence of care that is evident is the compassion of care … and that makes all the difference!

The Rehab. Unit is very well managed by Nurse Lee. Thank you to him, the nurses and the CNAs that provided very good nursing care to my mother. Joann PT, who manages the Therapy team goes above and beyond to ensure that the patients have what they need. The entire team is excellent. They were able to get my mother's pain under control and increase her mobility and ADLs.Thank you to Concierge Heidi who always has a friendly smile and greeting. She contributes to the family like culture of the facility.My mother now resides on South 1. Many thanks to all of the hard working nurses and CNAs, particularly Nurse Lisa and Nurse Stacy for their concern , communication skills, and caring.Thank you to the wonderful Activities Department: Evie, Collene, and Emily. My mother is now playing Bingo again! As well as attending the various other activities that are offered.Thank you to the culinary staff who provide the well rounded meals.

I honestly have nothing but good to say. Mary lee is the best! She is great at what she does and makes the process very easy and special. My Aunt Couldn’t ask for any better treatment then what she gets from her CNA Ms. Lee. I’m so grateful for the way she always cheers my aunt up when she walks in her room, nothing but smiles and laughter from the time she walks in till she leaves the room, she’s such a blessing!

I was more than happy with my recent visit to Gardner Rehab. All the staff I interacted with were pleasant. The receptionist helped me register as a visitor and gave me directions to the room that I was visiting. The nurses, CNA's, housekeeping and support staff were all knowledgeable. Also the facility inside and out were clean and well taken care of.

Aides,cna's, nurses do a great job even though they seem to be understaffed at times.The therapist ot's, pt's and st's are second to none they are excellent .I'd like to give a special shout out to concierge Heidi she visits every morning to address any concerns she's great.

Incompetent overnight staff and some obviously doped up. Understaffed all the time results in patients being ignored when needing help that is not acceptable in any case. No communication to family. Some great nurses during the day but just a handful. Not a good experience and lacking in sufficient P.T. just a walk down the hallway is all they are doing.

Staff was very welcoming. Any questions asked were promptly answered. Almost felt like I was checking my husband into a resort, but there were no paper umbrellas in his drink. Wonderful caring staff that could not do enough for him during the week, weekends the floor staff, butnot the specialists, were a bit more relaxed and I needed to go to the desk for assistance because the assistance needed buttons seemed to be ignored. When I went to the desk everyone was ready to help. Overall A very positive experience.

It was a very positive experience at this facility! I went to visit my children’s grandmother, my ex mother-in-law there. The staff were incredibly kind and friendly, and the facility itself is spotless. By far the best rehabilitation center I’ve been to.

So pleased with the nursing/rehabilitation staff. Very responsive to my mother's needs as well as my own as her advocate. Great scheduling and activities are a good balance and help Mom to stay active. Progress has been made very quickly and recovery is going very well for her.

Spent two weeks here recovering from bad accident and am so thankful this is we’re insurance sent me. Robin, the concierge is wonderful! Always there to answer a question and super friendly. And thank you for the wonderful blanket.Nursing staff was awesome (except for the overnight people). Cannot remember their name but image attached. Thank you for taking such thoughtful care of me.Food was good (I am diabetic and they made me a wonderful baked fish with green veggies and potato) all I had to do was ask.Physical therapy-big shout out to Suzanne who got me walking again! Cannot thank her enough. Room was comfortable, no complaints there either.Facility was clean and had a nice courtyard to enjoy warm days (and smoke).I moved to the area for a job and have no family here and they took such good care me. Alleviated all my fears and made me feel safe.If ever injured requiring rehab again this is where I hope they send me.

This was my first visit to a patient who was admitted the night before so I don't have a lot of feedback at this time. I will say that everyone I interacted with was very pleasant and helpful. I also found the facility to be very clean.I hope I will be able to give high marks for patient care during my family member's stay which of course is the most important thing for our loved one.

This is a beautiful and clean facility with spacious semi private rooms. All of the staff members that I encountered are very friendly starting with the receptionist and everyone along the way, including the Concierge Heidi who greeted me graciously and answered all of my questions. I also had the pleasure of meeting the Administrator Kim who is very caring and concerned about patients' needs. I would recommend this facility to anyone who is in need of short term rehab.

My grandfather has lived at Gardener Rehab & Nursing home for four years now, through the toughest part of Covid, and he has throughly enjoyed his time there. All of the staff is caring and supportive, the interior is kept clean and the exterior always looks nice. I would recommend this for both short term and long term care.
Just hired and had an interview, staff is very nice and caring. Willing to work with you and your schedule or whatever you may need, they'll make happen!! Very excited to start working tomorrow November 5th. The facility seems clean, staff seems helpful, compassionate and dedicated to teamwork making the dream work lol😁 which is very important! I believe I'll be here for years to come, it's just a place that's down to earth and I'm excited to be a part of it!!

Shout out to the staff on East 1 who cared for my mom while on Hospice up until her passing.Nurse Nicole her primary nurse was exceptional in overseeing her medications and making her comfortable up until the end.Sorry I can’t remember all the names of the staff but all were so kind. Most came in at the beginning of each shift to introduce themselves.As an RN and previous manager in an elder services program I know that customer service is of utmost importance. I have to commend ALL staff who did not leave the room without saying “Is there anything else I can do for you!” I loved that. Probably reflects the leader of the pack Kim!!KUDOS TO ALL!!👍🏻Kathy Gallant
