There are several good physicians at Riverbend in Agawam but the one I like best is Dr Cote. She is personable, compassionate and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend her and her staff .
I attended The Elms college for a couple of semesters as a part time student working on my BSN. I took a class entitled, "women of the Bible" in which the biblical account of Ruth and her mother in law Naomi was described as probably the "first account of a lesbian relationship documented" and I quote the nun teaching the class. I considered it almost a crime for a nun to be filling young minds with such audacious rubbish.
I am pleased to be the first to review, and brag on, Dr. Tami Nelson of Feeding Hills. I first visited Tami years ago after a car accident. I would never go anywhere else. She is likethe mouse that roars where chiropractic care goes-- I don't mean she;s loud at all, I mean she is tiny in stature but don't let that fool you. She can adjust anybody. She really got my neck and back into good shape again. Later, my daughter was also treated there with good results as well. The office is pleasantly serene and you're treated like an important person while there. Dr. Tami seems genuinely interested in her patients as people.
My cousin was suffering with headaches and backaches for quite some time when a work mate recommended the Schlaffers. She was very happy with the results and has not ever changed chiropractors.
These people have done amazing things with sports injuries. If your insurance will allow it (some don't ) and you are dealing with a sports injury, I recommend you give them a call.
This is just another name for Heritage Hall and I will reiterate that I do not feel that patients in the East building get good care. The staff is insensitive and unresponsive to the physical needs of the patients. The program director works hard to provide mental stimulation, though.
Can you say "decubiti"? If you're a nurse you can and if you've ever cared for a patient who came from The Governors Center you've most likely had to treat several of them, too. Enough said.
A dear friend stayed for rehab at Country Estates recently. Although the facility appears very nice, they seemed forever short on help. Call bells went unanswered for so long that it was downright irritating to other residents and visitors in the hall. If anyone ever really needed help in there--they'd better call 911 because the staff is not coming soon. My friend's diet was consistently incorrectly delivered and noone seemed to care much. Not a great spot.
I interviewed for a nursing job here at one time and might have taken it but something a bit closer to home came up. I was impressed by the interviewer and the facility and the whole place seemed to be very well run. They pay pretty well so they keep good staff that way. Smart.
The Arbors really is a lovely spot if you must consider elderly placement. I recently cared for a patient in a hospital nearby and her biggest concern was that she not be in the hospital long enough to lose her room at the Arbors. She loved it there and I have heard that from other elderly patients as well. Also-when patients are admitted to us from Arbors, you can see they have been well cared for.
