I went to The Gardens at Stroud after falling ill and I can’t thank the staff enough for all they have done for me. I was able to discharge back home and it’s all because of their hard work, encouraging kind words and affirmation with me. I will definitely recommend this facility and should I need rehab in the future I will definitely go back.
I am very grateful for the care my father received at The Gardens at Stroud for the duration of his stay there and also how comfortable the staff made me, my
sister and dad feel in his last days. we can never
repay the staff for their kindness and dedication.
