Dove Healthcare - Wissota Health & Regional Vent Center

"I was admitted to Dove Healthcare - Wissota Health & Regional Vent Center after breaking my hip. I was scared at first because I had never been in a nursing facility before. When I arrived, I was relieved. I could not believe how the place had changed from many years prior. They have made a lot of great improvements with the building and the staff. I was so proud of myself and the therapists when I started walking right away. All of the staff went above and beyond my expectations - it feels like home."

"I have been to Dove Healthcare - Wissota Health & Regional Vent Center three times for rehabilitation and every time has been great. My personal motto is "we only have one life; treat people the way you want to be treated". I think that Dove Healthcare lives up to this motto with their care and compassion. It truly feels like home and that's why I return each time I need rehabilitation services. I would have to say that I am a great supporter of Dove Healthcare and would recommend it to anyone."

Mike Olson

Dove Healthcare - Wissota Health & Regional Vent Center

"The highest point of my stay here at Dove Healthcare - Wissota Health was getting strapped into the ceiling lift for the first time and then taking my first step. I was walking again! It was really tough and really hard, because I hadn't walked in five months. But it was really neat to take my first step again. The one thing that really stood out in helping me most toward recuperation is how all staff  have a great sense of humor. Between the nursing staff and therapists- who were always playfully teasing and giving me a lot of "guff" helped me to maintain an upbeat, optimistic frame of mind, even on my bad days. The care here on the vent unit and down in Transitions Rehabilitation is just unbelievable. The people who work here are fantastic. I would recommend Dove Healthcare to anyone."

"I was referred to Dove Healthcare after my knee replacement and I was told they have an incredible therapy staff. Since my time at Dove Healthcare, I have told many people about my experience and would recommend anyone to continue therapy there after surgery. After I was discharged home, I also received out-patient therapy at Dove Healthcare. I have fully recovered from my surgery and I am able to do all the activities that I did before, such as volunteering at Scared Heart Hospital. My time at Dove Healthcare was an experience that I will never forget. The staff made it feel like home and I think that is what you need when caring for others. Dove Healthcare is wonderful!"

"Dove Healthcare's reputation in the community is outstanding and that is one reason I decided to go to Dove Healthcare after having my first knee replacement. I plan to come back for my second knee replacement. They had me in therapy the day that I arrived and I was so pleased with their customer service skills. They also were very informative of what I had to do in order to go home. The staff were very kind to my family and friends that came to see me. I have also had many friends and relatives that have been at Dove Healthcare and they were pleased with their stay. I have returned many times to see how everyone is doing. It takes a special person to do a job in the healthcare profession."

Arlan Erickson

Dove Healthcare - West Eau Claire

"The first time I was at Dove Healthcare was for a knee replacement. So I thought that since I had a great time the first time, I should come back for therapy for my hip. I really enjoyed the stay there and the patient care I received. The staff that works at Dove Healthcare are the best and it takes a special person to do that work. Dove Healthcare also made my stay easier, because they always kept me in a positive attitude that made my recovery a joyful experience. My motto is 'Enjoy life, it passes by fast! You need to have fun and laughter is the best medicine!'"

Jimmy Vance

Dove Healthcare - West Eau Claire

"What an Experience! I have to say that Dove Healthcare is an outstanding place to go for therapy. The first time I came to Dove Healthcare, I had a below the knee amputation. They helped me become independent so that I could go home. So, I decided to come back a year later while I was waiting for my prosthesis. My goal was to walk out of Dove Healthcare on my own. So far I think that is going to happen. I have been walking with the therapist every day so that I can achieve my goal. I would recommend Dove Healthcare to anyone that I know!"

"I attended rehab at Dove Healthcare after knee replacement. Recovery went faster than expected due to the excellent care I received from the nursing staff and physical therapist. The warm, pleasant surroundings all contributed to healing."

Deb Mayer

Dove Healthcare - West and South

"In December of 2005, I was in a life threatening car accident. I was hit by a drunk driver and my whole left side was broken. After four years, I still struggle. When Dove Healthcare - South was open in the fall of 2009, I was very interested in the new aquatic pool and therapy. After working for nearly three months with Ben, my physical therapist at Dove Healthcare, I feel that I have become stronger. Learning new walking techniques, working with the water jets in the pool for my scar tissue and the continuation of exercise techniques for my special needs since the accident, have helped me tremendously. Today, I continue to work in the aquatic pool with Jeff Sauter, Aquatics Director. My hope is to become whole again, one step at a time. Dove Healthcare helped me at the beginning of my recovery process and still helps me today."

Henrietta Dickerson

Dove Healthcare - South Eau Claire

"I was prescribed therapy to build up strength in my right leg prior to scheduled knee replacement. My treatment was 45 minutes in water therapy and up to 20 minutes on the Nu-Step machine. After 10 sessions paid by Medicare, I opted to privately pay for 10 additional session of water therapy with Jeff Sauter. The additional sessions strengthened my legs, my core muscles and improved my balance. The amazing results was that it improved my back so much that I no longer have pain requiring medication. My back pain has required injections by the Pain Clinic for the past two years to control severe back pain. I have highly praised the results to everyone I know who has severe back pain."

Howard Bullock

Dove Healthcare - South Eau Claire

"The pool is GREAT!!! What else can I say. I heard so many good things about the aquatics program at Dove Healthcare - South. I had a total hip done prior to coming to Dove Healthcare - South. I couldn't believe how much easier it was to walk in the pool than on land. I was so impressed with the staff and the pool. The pool is my favorite! I feel better today than I felt before I broke my hip. I think that after all the therapy I will be able to do more than I did before."

Francis Heike

Dove Healthcare - West Eau Claire

"I cannot say enough good things about the care and treatment that I received at Dove Healthcare. I first came to Dove Healthcare - West Eau Claire from the result of a broken hip. I had been to Dove Healthcare before so I knew what to expect… the best! The therapist I was seeing decided to leave and go to the new facility, Dove Healthcare - South Eau Claire, so I decided to follow and try the aquatic program as an out-patient. The pool was a great experience! I now can walk short distances without a walker or a cane. I was very impressed with the cheerful staff at Dove Healthcare. So I would like to say, Thank You!"

Patricia Russell

Dove Healthcare - South Eau Claire

"I began the aquatic therapy program following a knee replacement in October 2009; I have also suffered from rheumatoid arthritis for more than six years. Following surgery, I received conventional physical therapy. However, I've since discovered that 30-minute sessions in the heated pool at Dove Healthcare leave me more relaxed and generally free from the discomfort of physical stress. In just a few sessions, I'm already experiencing improved muscle strength and extension, better balance, and some reduction in secondary joint pain. And the staff at Dove Healthcare is really friendly and accommodating. I recommend the aquatic therapy pool to anyone who is recovering from surgery or has arthritis."

Carl Bahnson

Dove Healthcare - South Eau Claire

"I have used the pool at Dove Healthcare for rehabilitation after a lower leg amputation and in an attempt to assist and improve my mobility, balance and endurance. I've had approximately seven sessions in the last month and have noticed a substantial improvement in balance and flexibility. I am able to stand without discomfort and without aides or support. The water workouts have provided natural support without stress on joints so that I have increased flexibility in my limbs and trunk. It is exercise without exercising! I highly recommend aquatic therapy for someone who is interested in improving their health without the discomfort of aerobic exercise."
