We are happy to bring you information and photos from all of our locations. We hope you will also enjoy the personal video from our CEO, Grant ThayerWe are grateful for each one of you who make up the Care & Rehab Family. Some patients come here for only a short time, while others stay much longer. Each patient, resident, family member, friend, volunteer, and employee become part of the Care & Rehab family. This newsletter has been in our planning stage for some time. Due to the COVID-19 lock down, we decided it was best to launch it now. We hope you enjoy it!

Grant, Andrea & Arthur traveled on a beautiful sunny day to distribute the gowns. We started at Care & Rehab-Ladysmith, where all of the boxes were delivered to Ann Novak, our Ladysmith Administrator. Grant was able to take off and land 8 times due to great weather.

Hello from Care & Rehab-Ostrander ( located 24 mi South of Rochester, MN) This location in Ostrander was the birth place of Care & Rehab. It is our smallest community. Suites and Rooms are very large and made private for each resident. Assisted Living apartments were built recently and are attached to Skilled Nursing/Rehab Wings.

An interior Decorating Update was completed recently, with new looks in both Dining Rooms and a New Short-Term Rehab Wing. The pictures below show a recent music event we were able have. The performance was outside on the sidewalk and allowed Patients, Residents, and Staff to hear the beautiful rhythms and sounds from their opened windows. This was enjoyed by all!

Hello from Care & Rehab-Barron (Barron is the County Seat for Barron County and the city itself is full of outdoor activities). This is Care & Rehab’s busiest location. Between Barron, Rice Lake and Eau Claire Hospitals, our Rehabilitation Therapists and nurses are very busy working with all of those who come for short term rehab stays. We have seen numerous success stories from this great short-term rehab program.

Hello from Care & Rehab-Ladysmith (located on the 2nd floor of the Hospital) This location was built years ago by the Servants of Saint Mary Sisters. All rooms are private suites that overlook the Flambeau River. The proximity of the Hospital, ER, Doctors Clinic, Rehabilitation, and a magnificent view of the River makes this location #1 for Rusk County residents.

Hello from Care & Rehab-Neillsville (Attached to Hospital) This location is a 1 hr drive from Eau Claire and 25 min from Marshfield, WI. This year we completed redecorating of the New Short-Term Rehab Wing. We were so happy with the new look that we decided to start more painting/decorating and freshening up for our dining room, hallways, and some private suites. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 lockdown, the painting was put on pause.
