The therapist is kind and gentle with my leg and thorough with my treatments. Couldn't ask for anything more. He actually cares about me. I was so excited today when we tried a new therapy to help me stand (I did!). He is so gentle and patient. I'm glad he's my therapist. I stood for 7 minutes today! He has taken me all this way! I know I can make it now! Thank you! -LH

The therapist suggested the car door handle adapter for my car door entry to transfer easier. It works great! ALL of my therapists have been very helpful to my recovery and strength. I am grateful for their care. -BG

Although I was only in Menorah Manor 2 days and 2 nights after my shoulder surgery, I told my friend how impressed I was with the facilities and how I was treated. Everyone I came in contact with was friendly, kind, compassionate, efficient, very competent at their jobs, always attentive and "on the ball" about everything. I saw the sunsets in the dining room and was given a Mickey Mouse sticker my first breakfast. It is definitely the place I will go to when or if I need a nursing home. Please tell all the nice people who took care of me how much I thank them for all they did. -NR

His normal, everyday life was becoming more challenging. Speaking in public had been such a joy for him and was becoming a dreaded task.

A High Holiday Message from Rabbi Herz, Menorah Manor’s Director of Spiritual Care

It is almost impossible to believe that in just a few short weeks, Jews throughout the world will once again begin observing the High Holy Days. The first of these holidays, Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on September 13th and the cycle concludes at sundown on October 6th. For many Jews, this three and a half week period of time is akin to running the Iron Man Triathalon and the Boston Marathon back to back.
