I am Nadine Foster. My Mom Marilyn Bailey is a patient here at Great Barrington Healthcare. Quite some time ago, I was checking out places for her to rehab in as I noticed she was getting weaker. She didn’t want to come of course, then her incident happened with her seizure and I knew right where I wanted her to come. The greeting I had when I came to first check the place out was so warm, so inviting, the staff was great. I took one walk down the hallway and noticed how clean it was, how friendly the staff was, the rooms and hallways were bright. I was in this building a few years ago, and I walked out. The improvements, and the new management was a big deal to me. I don’t worry about my Mom here like I worried about her at home. I know that she is safe and people are wonderful to her. She is getting the care she needs. It is an adjustment for all of us. I sometimes think it is more of an adjustment for the families than it is the patient, at first you get those guilty feelings and you wonder if you are doing the right thing. It didn’t take me very long to realize that I do not feel guilty, and I did the right thing. I am very grateful for Great Barrington Healthcare and the staff, and I think I want to volunteer here. I am very happy for my Mom here, and I think she likes it too.
