REHAB RESULTS

Friday, April 11, 2014

Rehabilitation Therapy can be some pain!  But, perhaps you've heard "no pain - no gain!" 

Recently I reviewed the surveys taken by many of our Rehab patients following the completion of their treatment and their return back home.  In every category of the survey, former Rehab guests (patients) ranked FUMC Rehab in the "EXCELLENT" category.

A few of the comments were:

                              I thoroughly enjoyed each visit/ tough but good!'

                I feel as if we became family through my experience here in therapy.

                             Therapists showed concern and compassion.

I highly recommend this facility to everyone!  My knee surgery went very well due to the              
           program here at FUMC.  I do truly hate to leave!  If I ever needed therapy again,
                                             I would certainly come back!!!

If you or a loved one reside in Central Indiana and you need a place for outstanding rehabilitation services (Medicare certified), whether planned for a surgery or due to an emergency, we hope you will consider allowing us the privilege of serving you.  We are open to all persons, regardless of their church affiliation, and would be happy to help you return to your former well-being and lifestyle.

Where the Middle Class Thrives

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

 Eight places were identified as a place where the middle class thrives and our own Johnson County has been ranked number one.  With Franklin as the County seat, the article noted that Johnson County is home to low unemployment, a good quality of life and decent incomes, according to government data compiled by CNN Money and nonprofits Opportunity Nation and Measure of America
 
"This is great exposure for the county; but more importantly, it demonstrates what we've been saying for a long time: Johnson County is a great place to live," said Johnson County Commissioner Ron West in the Daily Journal article. 
 
We agree!  Come visit the Franklin United Methodist Community and experience a fabulous college town environment, complete with full-service health care options for your retirement years.

Say Goodbye to January

Friday, January 31, 2014

I don't know about you, but we are glad to say "goodbye" to this month of January that has had snow, ice and below zero temperatures.  Many of our residents who are used to getting outside for walks on our campus or taking a joy ride on one of our buses to see the neighborhoods and towns have gotten "cabin fever" during this tough winter weather.

The good news is they didn't have to shovel snow, worry about frozen pipes, stand in line for bread and milk in the store before another winter storm hit, concern themselves with the propane shortage, their garage door wouldn't go up, or a host of other problems the rest of us Hoosiers encountered in the last 31 days!

I am proud to report that our staff made it in every day, our facilities held up to the challenges, and residents were transported to medical providers as needed.  Many mornings as we fought the elements to get here, it was reassuring to go pass one of our 15 dining rooms and see that our residents were enjoying a nice hot breakfast in the comfort of their home, right on time!!  Sound good?  So what are you waiting for?  Contact a member of our Sales Team at 317-736-7185 and learn about the options for your retirement living at Franklin United Methodist Community.

Transportation Keeps On Rolling

Monday, November 11, 2013

Franklin United Methodist Community offers our residents so much more than many senior living or long-term care facilities.  Oftentimes, at other places, if a resident needs to see the a doctor or go the the hospital, family are required to take their loved one.  At FUMC, we are proud that we have several vehicles and drivers that take our folks to medical appointments when needed.  We just added this "gently used" wheelchair van/bus which accommodates 12 persons in seats and two wheelchairs.  Some of our residents will tell you that they so enjoy our "Joy Rides" where we take them on an hour-long journey to a "mystery destination".  It is a nice change of pace for folks who seldom get to take a drive like they used to with their spouse or family.

So Why Would I Move Now?

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Oftentimes healthy and active persons, say 62 to 75 years old ask, why would I move to a retirement community campus now?  I don't need any help!"

Here's a letter I received today from one of our independent home residents who are "active" on our campus and throughout the community.

Yesterday . . . I parked across from our entrance . . . and my wife was getting out of the car when she slipped (on the wet) grass and fell.  Before I even knew what was happening one of our FUMC buses stopped and two of our staff rushed to the scene.  The ladies were seeing that she was getting the necessary help.  As I crossed the street a tractor stopped and there was a third employee to help as needed.

She was not seriously hurt and was able to go on about her business.  We both are grateful for the kind and prompt attention of our staff.

None of us know if or when we may need assistance.  Wouldn't it be great to be surrounded by neighbors (and staff) who watch out for one another and are quick to respond to our "surprises" in life. 

Why not call our Sales Team at 1-86-RETIRING or 317-736-7185 to learn more about the many options for a fun and secure place to live, all maintenance free!

Fun Things at Franklin United

Thursday, October 10, 2013

So often we talk about wellness and health care and forget that one of the best things we do at Franklin United Methodist Community is "have fun".  Fun with our neighbors and friends to make each day the best day possible!  Bring your lawn chair, bring your straw hat, but come . . . and enjoy the many activities that we provide for those who call our Community "home".

Celebrating Labor Day with a Twirl

Friday, August 30, 2013

We have the fun of celebrating nearly every holiday possible with our residents at the Franklin United Methodist Community.  The joy of socialization and interaction amongst our residents is what adds the spice to life for many in this chapter of their lives.


At our Labor Day Celebration and Corn Roast (sweet corn in Indiana at the end of August!) several of our ladies entertained us with their dance and ribbon routines.  Both the line dancers and the "Ribbonettes" meet regularly in our Group Exercise Room of our Wellness Center for exercise.  So, we invited them to show off their routines and enjoy the applause from a captive audience.

 
Does it look like fun?  Come, join our Community and find out why your best days are still ahead!
