My father had wonderful care at Merry Heart. I work in an ER and I am always recommending Merry Heart whenever I can.


I thought the staff was phenomenal. My father was very well cared for, dressed every day and enjoyed the activities.

It is a week that I returned home from Merry Heart rehabilitation. I would like to tell you that my stay was pleasant under the circumstances.


I have no complaints about anything during the many weeks I was there. There are a few people that took care of me that I would like to mention that gave me aside from the excellent service, gave a little of their heart too. They are nurses Jennifer and Wil, CNA Isabel, and Floor Coordinator Aerika.


At the rehab center I was in the very capable hands of Scott, Alicia, and Shari.


I congratulate you on the excellent way you run Merry Heart, and both my husband and I are wishing you good luck with the expansions.

I look for professionalism, courtesy and kindness. When you are going through this it is new and you feel alone.  You want to be directed and treated with respect. The staff, social services, the front desk, everyone is so kind. I absolutely would recommend Merry Heart to a friend.

I was discharged from Merry Heart on Feb 14th, I want to say that everyone was extremely pleasant, happy and accommodating to helping me and getting me snacks and coffee. I greatly appreciated them and will be ever thankful to them for their kindness.


My nurse’s aide Doreen was a God send, always cheerful, helpful, kind and considerate. At 7:30 in the morning she was bright light that started my day. Thank you, Doreen.


My nurses Leidy and Ann were always cheerful and happy. They gave me my meds and took exceptional care of me. They kept asking me if I needed my meds for pain or some aspirin. Thank you, ladies, for taking such good care of me. I will always think kindly of you.

Now, to the most important two people who helped me during my stay at Merry Heart, Matthew and Ashley my two PTs. They were relentless in their quest to get me up and about. They were pushing me to do what needed to be done. I thank God that they were my guardian angels. I will never forget either of them and when I have and when I have achieved my goal of walking unaided. I will be back to show them how their hard work and determination paid off and got me back to normal. Thank you, Matthew and Ashley, I will always remember you and I will always be thankful for you being there for me.

Merry Heart didn’t stop there. Everyday we went down stairs and had lunch in the luncheon room. You had drinks, salad and a meal and dessert. It was pleasant change of scenery and meeting other patients and talking. Then of course, for another diversion there were games. Andrea from Activities did a great job. You had bingo, the word game, dominoes and other games. What fun it was and very interesting. Again, you got to meet and talk to your friends. Thank you, Andrea.

Last but not the least, let me give Merry Heart and all the employees the biggest and best Thank You very much for making my stay there one of the nicest working vacations a girl could want. Don’t ever change.

My Dad was at MerryHeart for short term rehab and they were fabulous. The physical therapy team were great getting my Dad to push himself and helping him to get stronger and to return to normal activities of daily living! The staff all were very nice and respectful of him. The food was pretty good too and eating lunch in the dinning room was really nice. I loved that Andrea got my Dad involved in activities during the day! I couldn't have been happier with the care the staff gave my father! Thanks again to everyone.

I was at Merry Heart almost the whole month of March of 2015 after suffering from a massive heart attack. The staff was exceptional and got me walking again after 2 months in the hospital. I enjoyed the conversations with Sarah, one of the employees, and Katherine, the night nurse.The people in rehab were also great. I have recommended this place to many people and those that have sent parents there have thanked me for the recommendation.
