NEW YORK (Reuters) - Advancements in dentistry make it more likely that older adults will keep their teeth longer, which means ongoing oral health care is essential, a new study says. Unfortunately, it's not unusual for the frail and elderly to have poor oral hygiene.
The staff at The Pines at Bristol is committed to providing the highest quality nursing and rehabilitative care to our patients and residents. This group of highly-trained professionals strive to meet the patients' medical and short-term rehabilitation needs, all while providing the highest quality of care while maximizing the functional independence of each person we serve.
My grandma, Dorothy Gagne', Room 209, was a patient at The Pines from June 2013 until Sept 10, 2013 when she passed away. I wanted to take a moment to thank the staff on the second floor for everything they did for her while she was there especially during her final hours. From the care they provided to her to the compassion they showed our family when she quietly passed away is something that I will never forget. So, to the nurses, aides and all those from the hospice staff, I say thank you from the bottom of my heart. My grandma meant the world to me and I take great comfort in knowing that she was in your caring hands during the last few months of her life.
"Words cannot explain how lovely my stay has been. The staff is so friendly and professional and I would recommend The Pines at Bristol Center for Health and Rehabilitation to anyone wanting to get back on their feet and home. The highly skilled team met my individual needs with all the amenities and services that made me comfortable."
"I was told by family that The Pines at Bristol Center for Health and Rehabilitation was the best rehabilitation facility in Bristol and they were right. Everyone is always so pleasant and has a smile or just a ‘good morning’ for you. Whenever I needed assistance, I put the nurse call light on and the response was quick."
"I came to The Pines at Bristol before, as part of their Passport Rehabilitation Program. I pre-booked my stay with them - and now I am here again on my second "pre-book." I take notes every day on what I do and who helps me. After looking over my notes, I see how many wonderful thoughts I had during my stay and how many great folks partook in caring for me and my needs. There are too many people to even mention here, but thanks to the CNAs, nurses and therapy team, especially! I will tell my friends this is the place to come if they ever need help. I will come back too. You have a super team. God Bless all of them.
