Hi, my name is Michele Hopp, and I live in Merrimac, Wisconsin. And I broke my ankle at church, and so that brought me to Meriter, and from there I was given the option of going to a rehab center. The recommendation was one in Madison, but I wanted to be closer to home. So my husband has been in Maplewood several times, so I knew how good it was and I knew that it would be like home.
And that’s exactly what I found, that the staff are fantastic, your schedule is flexible. If you want to go to church, which is awesome that it’s even offered, then you can go to therapy at a later time. If you don’t feel like having your breakfast now, they’ll wait a little bit. So it has been incredibly flexible and very, very friendly. The staff are friendly, they’re loving. It feels like you are at home.
And we also have the opportunity to get to know the residents. So in our dining hall we put all of the tables together as one table, we eat as a family and get to know one another, and then we wanted to hang out with each other. So we’re exchanging phone numbers and addresses now that it’s time to go, and I think I created new friends, so I’d highly recommend coming to Maplewood.
After a liver transplant, the important process of rehabilitation happened at Maplewood of Sauk Prairie.
Hello, my name is Howard. I’m from North Freedom. I’m here in Maplewood because I’m here after a liver transplant. I’m 48 and I believe that Maplewood is a good place, very good people, very good; they know what they are doing.
Now, I understand that Maplewood to a lot of people is assisted living, but this is also a really, very good rehabilitation center. I’m here due to, like I said, a liver transplant. When I arrived here, I couldn’t do anything for myself. Because I’m single and I live alone, going home after the transplant was not an option. I found Maplewood to be closest to home so that if I needed anything or my friends needed to see me, I was close enough for them to not have to travel hours, which is what I would’ve had to done if I was staying in UW Madison.
Here, the facility is very modern, people are very friendly. They’re very cooperative, and they’ll push you a little bit but not beyond what they believe you can accomplish. In a lot of cases, sometimes you just feel like you just can’t go any farther, they’ll show you, you can go farther and you’ll grow from the experience.
A special testimonial from Carol E., who chose Maplewood of Sauk Prairie for her rehabilitation is Sauk Prairie Wisconsin
So when we fooled around for three years and the pain couldn’t handle anymore, my primary doctor finally got a special, what do you call it, contract so that I could go to a different hospital with my insurance that they would agree to pay for.
And Medicare. Okay. When she did that, I thought, well, maybe I could be selfish and ask if I could go to rehab at Maplewood because Mom was here a few years ago. They did a fine job with her. And I wanted it to be close for Roger so he didn’t have so far to drive, okay? It was everything I expected and more, besides. Not just staff, but the patients. I’ve made so many nice people…met them here, and had such a good time talking. It’s really eased my surgery.
And the cooperation here with me and how I’m feeling and concern for my wishes is unbelievable. I’ve never experienced it before anywhere else and it’s great. So basically, I was fortunate enough to be able to go home part of everyday for the last week and spend it with my husband. Then he’d bring me back. My curfew was 8:00. Been a lot of years since I’ve had a curfew but it was fine. And they’ve done a great job. Now, when this one’s healed completely and it’s onto the next one I’m definitely coming back here.
Here at Maplewood of Sauk Prairie, we want to provide exceptional care along with fantastic service for our residents.
Jo, from Baraboo Wisconsin, had a broken ankle and decided to work with a physical therapist in our rehabilitation department. She has continually improved and provided a video testimonial that you can watch.
Hello, my name is Josephine Z, I am from Baraboo and I have just spent a month at Maplewood of Sauk Prairie in rehabilitation for a broken ankle, and I am now residing at Maplewood Village. I want to talk about the rehabilitation center. In June, on June 17th, I was trying to do some outside painting on a two-step stool and I took a tumble and broke my ankle in a couple of places. Something that I have never done before in my life. So my last thought for this summer was that I would be in a rehabilitation center, but I want to tell you about Maplewood, it’s an amazing place. The staff is fantastic. They are always there, they are always present. They are helpful, they are cheerful, they are fun. I came to love them very much for their hope for me. and ah, there is never anything that you want that they cannot try to do for you with–with great cheerful spirits.
I am now at Maplewood Village, hoping that I can, as soon as my ankle is ready for rehab, I will be able to travel by wheelchair, back over there for rehabilitation in their therapy department, which is also wonderful. The girls there and the men there are just super, and working with the patients and with the greatest cheer. I don’t know how they do it, they are– all of them when deal with people that are much more disabled and injured than I. I feel like an imposter with just a broken ankle, but it is a great place and I cannot say enough for it. The food is wonderful. The help is great. The surroundings are very pretty and very tastefully kept, and I would recommend it to anyone who needs that kind of service.
Here is a testimonial about the fantastic physical therapy and occupational therapy that was received. Colleen had fractures of the pelvis and shoulder after a fall. In order to recover, she chose to receive care at Maplewood of Sauk Prairie.
