I was truly blessed to witness the loving care and concern he received from the wonderful people of Platinum Ridge Center. The love shown to him means more to me than words can explain.

    Cortlandt Healthcare

    “For nursing home residents, winter is three months spent inside because the weather outside is frightful. Thanks to the staff at Cortlandt Healthcare, we’re not bored. In addition to bingo, bowling and wheelchair yoga, we recently had two fantastic parties. On January 23rd, we had our Snow Ball, which is an ‘informal formal.’ Those residents that had fancy clothes had a chance to get dressed up. Activity leaders looked wonderful in their best outfits as they served us hot hors d’oeuvres and ginger ale in ‘champagne glasses.’ The Snow Ball always adds a touch of glamour. The Super Bowl party was super fun. The main lobby had football themed decorations. The kitchen staff did an outstanding job. We had three types of dip, chips, carrot and celery sticks, two types of chicken wings and two types of sandwiches. I sat between a Patriots fan and a Seahawks fan. When asked what team l was rooting for l truthfully said “The commercials and the half-time show.” We all had a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone. We appreciate your hard work.”

    “I enjoy being at the Riverside for the care and love the nurses and CNAs give me. The feeling of care is so wonderful. The CNAs and nurses help me to get a more independent feeling, from the caring that they show. The dietician is wonderful too… she arranges very good meals for me. I’m a diabetic.”

I just wanted to say I love it here.

  • The Willows at Ramapo Rehabilitation and Nursing Center

    “For the last three weeks I have been involved in the Ramapo Manor Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program. Prior to being a participant in this program, I was getting oxygen three times a day. Since entering this program, each day my breathing has gotten stronger. I am now walking without any oxygen. This has truly been a miracle and I am so thankful that Ramapo Manor now has a Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program. I would recommend this program to anyone that needs help with their breathing.”

    -B. Minisman

    “This whole place is so wonderful. I can’t pinpoint one department, because they are all so nice and kind. If someone has anxiety about what is going on, they talk to them softly and put their hand on their shoulder and tell them everything will be alright. Just such nice good people you have here.”

    Willows at Ramapo Rehabilitation and Nursing Center

    “This program was very helpful to me. My breathing has gotten so much stronger. When I started this program, I wasn’t even able to walk and I was getting 4 liters of oxygen around the clock. When I finished the program, I was only getting 2 liters of oxygen daily and I am now walking on my own! This program is the reason I am able to head back to Peru to see my friends and family. The therapists showed me a lot of different breathing exercises and techniques that I can use while I am at home. I would 100% recommend this program to anyone who has trouble breathing.”
