100 Percent Satisfaction

At Paul Oliver Living and Rehabilitation Center, your satisfaction is our top priority. Based on resident feedback, we think we’re doing a pretty good job:

  • 100% feel as though their loved one's needs are being met: “Having my mom join this loving community is one of the best decisions I have ever made. They always have time to give each person individual care – a kiss on the forehead, a rub to the back, a hand to hold, or just a listening ear.”

  • 100 percent are very satisfied with the friendliness and compassionate nature of our staff:  "Emotionally and physically they did exactly what I needed,” one patient said. In a note to Paul Oliver’s staff she added, “It is obvious that you do not just show up for a job. You take an active interest, heart and soul, in the people you care for every day. Your dedication to those who are completely dependent on you is evident in all you do. I had a few very rough days before coming to them, but the people, the management, there is not a one of them that was not amazing.”

  • 100 percent of skilled nursing residents were very satisfied with the rehabilitation center: “After extensive hip revision surgery in Grand Rapids, I spent eight days in long-term care at POMH, where I was dearly cared for by its staff. Hopefully I have turned another corner improving my health. So much is a mystery, but without the diligence and professionalism of your staff, I don’t know where I would be tomorrow. Great care has been given to me from entry to exit. I’m a lucky guy to be here.”
