Following a hospital stay at Holy Family Hospital for wounds and complications from diabetes, I was transferred to The Grove of Evanston for further care.

Since being at The Grove, I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my condition. The wounds on my foot, especially the heel, have almost completely healed. I’m still receiving care for a wound on the side of my foot, but I’m confident it’s getting better each day. I must say that the wound care team, especially Ami and Liam, has been outstanding. Their skill and dedication have played a crucial part in my recovery.

Beyond the excellent medical care, what surprised me most about The Grove was how it exceeded my expectations. Initially, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the quality of care and the warmth of the staff have been fantastic. Everyone makes you feel comfortable and genuinely cared for, which is so important in a recovery environment.

Another aspect of The Grove that I’ve particularly enjoyed is the range of activities. The activity group offers a lot of engaging things to do, which is vital for someone like me, spending a lot of time in recovery. And, of course, the little treats like ice cream on Fridays and other snacks are delightful perks that not only make life here more enjoyable but also contribute to a positive recovery experience.

If someone were to ask me why I’d recommend The Grove of Evanston to friends or family, I’d say it’s because of the people here. The staff’s kindness and the overall pleasant atmosphere make it a great place to be, especially when you’re dealing with health issues. It’s not just a facility; it’s a close-knit community that supports you through your healing journey, and it’s about your overall well-being.
