I have worked at East Side Nursing for 4 years as an Activities Leader. I have a music background, which I incorporate into our programs. Music is a shinning light that brings a big smile for all. The residents will even teach me a song I’ve never heard of and I’ll make sure I learn it by the next time we meet. I love them and I love what I do.
I have worked at East Side for 37 years. It is my home away from home! I have never wanted to work anywhere else. I truly love coming to work and spending my time with the residents.
Therapists Karen and Shannon both helped me a great deal. They made therapy something to look forward to! -Jesse K. (Previous Short-Term Rehab. Resident)

East Side is a very comfortable nursing home. The employees are polite and cheerful and willing to help at any time. The meals were not too bad and the personal care was excellent. -Mary W. (Previous Short-Term Rehab. Resident)

When I came to East Side right out of the hospital I didn't know what to expect. I was very weak and fearful about what was going to happen. Then the staff stepped in and everything turned around. I had the two best therapists anyone could ask for. The compassion and kindness they showed me was so appreciated. The nursing staff is great for the most part, there's not enough room or time to mention specific names but if it wasn't for Nancy I don't think I would have come this far, and I wish I could take Allison and Alyssa and Andrew home with me! This truly is a family setting! -Jackie A. (Previous Short-Term Rehab. Resident)
Hello, my name is Tom M., I was a patient at East Side from Nov. 2018-Feb. 2019. I was very sick and recovering from septic shock, I was sent to East Side from Millard Fillmore Hospital. When I arrive here I wasn't sure what to expect. The staff made me feel very comfortable and checked in on me throughout the night, every one of them had a pleasant smile and welcomed me with open arms. My thought was: God has offered me a great place to recoup, get my strength and really get my life back. The Therapy dept. was so great right from the start. The whole dept. worked vigorously to get me up and moving again and to gain back my independence. What a great group of employees that work here and I mean right down to the buildings and grounds people. The Activity dept. has something going all the time, if you're bored it's nobody's fault but your own. If you know of anyone, even yourself, who needs a gentle hand or exercise to help those stiff joints please give East Side the chance to get you up and moving, make you stronger, feel better, and put a smile on your face. I think you'll love the great people, activities, and yes even the meals are all good! THANK YOU EAST SIDE for all that you do for all us older folks!
"Therapy was GREAT! Staff was very caring. Activities were good. Overall, I enjoyed my stay, even if things were limited due to Covid-19." -Connie C. (Previous Short-Term Rehab. Resident)
It's been very good here, very helpful. Of course I'd rather be home, but I was very comfortable here. Robert, one of the CNA's , was very helpful in getting me ready for the day. Everyone here was very nice. -Dorothy M. (Previous Short-Term Rehab. Resident)
During my stay at East Side everyone has been very helpful and pleasant. They have gone out of their way to make it a bearable situation. They make sure you have what you need whatever that may be. -Laura G. (Previous Short-Term Rehab. Resident)
