“I had a great experience at Ann Arbor. All employees went above and beyond for the patients. They all really work as a team, and that makes all the difference in the world. And believe it or not, the food was really good – Chef Mohammed was very accommodating to all of my dietary needs. The team was encouraging! I loved recreational activities! I loved bingo, group meditation, and all of the puzzles and games! Rehab was very encouraging and lovely!”
