When Harry Meyers fell in his home while preparing for a beach vacation, he didn’t expect to lose his ability to walk. It was the furthest thing from his mind.
After being transported to a local hospital, he found he had a crushed tibia and serious infection in his knee cap. Knowing Harry would temporarily lose his ability to care for himself, doctors advised him to seek intense rehabilitation.
He immediately thought of Masonic Village at Elizabethtown and decided to recover in the Transitional Care Unit, where he was put on a personalized regiment of therapies. Throughout his stay, Harry, an oral and maxillofacial facial surgeon, had high standards.
“I understand what quality medical care is,” he said. “I was pleasantly surprised and ecstatic with everything. I would recommend Masonic Village’s Transitional Care Unit without hesitation.”
Before his return home, staff visited Harry’s house to ensure he would have the proper environment to succeed: to move about, dress, cook and function on his own. In addition, they made sure Harry’s wife, who was impressed with his amazing improvement, was content.
“Staff were extremely present, helpful, warm and professional as I learned to walk again,” he said. “I have visited many patients in nursing care facilities, and I have never seen one as nice as Masonic Village.”
Originally estimating a two-month stay, Harry regained his mobility in a little over two weeks.
“I thank the Lord and I thank Masonic Village’s care,” he said.
