A good place, if you have to go
I'm not wishing any medical bad luck on anyone reading this but it is nevertheless worthwhile mentioning that our area is blessed with a physical rehab facility, not in Edmonds but a very few minutes driving distance from us.
The place is ManorCare on 188th near to and overlooking Alderwood Mall.
I can't recommend it highly enough. The spotlessly clean rooms, hallways, dining rooms and related areas are constantly being attended to by housekeeping personnel.
The medical staff, with an International flavor, including Registered Nurses and assistants, seem fully committed to the comfort of patients sent there by area hospitals.
Clicking your "help needed" light will bring a smiling and helpful person in a fairly short time depending only upon possible short delays during the busiest times of the day.
The dining rooms provide menus attempting to suit the tastes of just about everyone and cater to specific dietary needs while offering delightful tastes. Varieties change with just about every meal.
I found their offerings tasty, filling and, with one exception, thoroughly satisfying. Only the pickiest of eaters could find anything not to their liking.
The exception? Like many local area restaurants, their scrambled eggs are not only overcooked but might be considered to vulcanize medium sized holes in the Goodyear blimp.
If you like your scrambled eggs soft, I wish you luck wherever you dine in the Edmonds/Lynnwood area.
Thanks John D.
And when your visit is over, a specialist such as Lily who heads up the Social Services department, is willing and anxious to follow up on your progress or needs even after you have returned home.
Once again, I don't wish any medical problems on anyone, and in fact hope you can avoid such a need but should that unfortunate happenstance occur with a follow-up need for therapy or rehab, ask if a bed might be available at ManorCare.
Ask any friend or acquaintance who has been treated at ManorCare and I am confident that you will hear the same praise. My special friend and neighbor spent a few days there and had nothing but good things to say about them.
When my need arose, I requested that facility and was fortunate enough to be admitted.
