"The nurses responded quickly to my needs and always with a positive attitude. The Activities Director and her assistants made my stay interesting by providing programs that created stimulation and interaction with other residents. At Village Crest I was truly treated as a human being and not just a 'number.' I would wholeheartedly and highly recommend to anyone in need of care to go to Village Crest Rehab Center"

The entire staff, including management, nursing, therapy and housekeeping was not only professional, but courteous and helpful. It was wonderful to have a rehabiliation/nursing facility with such high standards in our community. Thank you Village Crest."
