Letter from a patient: 
A successful move back home with Transitions


We would like to share our satisfaction with services provided by the Transitions At Home therapy team, Heather (Physical Therapist, Therapy Services Director) and Lisa (Occupational Therapist). The move from a skilled nursing facility to home for our loved one required what seemed like some pretty significant adjustments in family life and changes in routine as a result of

alterations in physical and cognitive abilities; however, both

Heather and Lisa made every effort to ease the transition for everyone including family members. Heather and Lisa demonstrated a remarkable level of commitment to their work, and the level of genuine caring was beyond what any of us had hoped for.  Heather and Lisa were compassionate and sensitive to the dynamics of our family and showed awareness and regard for interconnected factors such as learning needs and stresses that each of us was feeling on a personal level.  We truly could not have asked for a more understanding and helpful team. We would also like to recognize Tara who visited only twice but demonstrated the same high level of skill and compassion. We hope this letter acknowledges the therapy team’s exemplary qualities as care professionals and reflects our sincerest gratitude and appreciation of the services they provided.     - Letter from patient's family

Joan works with Transitions At Home therapists

Joan: Strength, determination and quality care get results


Joan lived an active life, participating in Silver Sneakers and in multiple knitting groups around town. She cooked and cleaned for herself and her family. One day she took a horrible fall down eight cement steps. After two helicopter rides to different hospitals, and a month-long stay at a hospital in Milwaukee, Joan and her family were told that she wouldn’t walk again after her doctor gave her only a 10% chance. To help recover and regain as much range of motion as possible, she went to East Troy Manor for inpatient physical therapy. Click here to continue reading Joan's story.

Ed: Medical care in the comfort of home


Ed is 25 years and has battled Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for four years. After a recent hospitalization, he sought out inpatient rehabilitation at Holton Manor in Elkhorn, WI. When he was well enough to go home but still required care, he contacted Transitions At Home and was paired with licensed RNs and the same physical therapists he’d been working with for the past two years during outpatient therapy at Core Rehabilitation. Notably, he also became one of Core Rehab’s first aquatic therapy patients following the installation of a new therapy pool in 2015. Click here to continue reading Ed's story.

Marian: Inpatient, outpatient therapy plus home health brings healing

Marian is 87 years old and lives with her daughter and her family. After two falls which resulted in a broken femur, knee cap, and pelvis, and a bad case Vertigo, she and her family chose Holton Manor to begin her healing. The CNAs, nurses, volunteers, and staff became so in-tune with her condition and needs, that when Marian used the call button, they could often anticipate her needs and respond quickly. Click here to continue reading Marian's story.
