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.
