“Rated 10/10. The care and the professionalism exhibited by the staff, was the best that I ever encountered, and I had spent 18 months at Yale New Haven Hospital. Given my status, and the status of this facility I would highly recommend it as a 5 star facility for individuals looking to pursue getting their health back to the point it was before the catastrophic event that put them in this place.”

“I just wanted to let you know what a great team of staff you have at 60 West! Your staff have been amazing, going above & beyond to help my brother and to be supportive of me as well. Your social worker Emily has been a tremendous support to [resident]. Anytime I reach out to her she always follows up and gets back to me. She has also helped me navigate some rough patches with him which I found very helpful. Your nursing staff is always updating me as needed. They have been professional and willing to listen to my input which I so appreciate. I know that in the day in and day out of working in a nursing home it can be very challenging. The staff can struggle with making a difference, especially this year! Please know that you and your wonderful team have made a difference in my brother’s quality of life! I can not thank them enough for all that they do! You are all heroes and May God Bless you!”

“In July 2017 I toured 60 West with our daughter and was immediately impressed with the facility and the compassion and care I observed in all the staff I met. I knew this was the place for Ken. My husband was transferred to 60 West later that July in 2017. I was happy that Ken would have a chance to rehabilitate and receive the care he needed. From the beginning of his stay all of the staff, from mental health to dietary, made us feel like family. Kyle was there for me 24/7 with any questions or just to listen when I needed someone to vent too. With hard work, patience, and a caring team, my husband started being himself again. Ken was ready for discharge. Emily (social worker) set all the appointments for doctors and home care services. It was a very organized process and I was very grateful for that. On January 13, 2020 Ken came home. Thank you ALL for your support and care for Kens stay to be a success!!!!”
~ Kim Sabatino (March 2020)
“I like the individualized aspect of my time here. Staff worked with me on the areas I struggled in. My memory was very poor and the staff here worked with me to improve that. This place helped me in so many ways and gave me a new perspective on life. I appreciate everything 60 West did for me.”
~ Resident JA (December 2018)

~ Resident RF (March 2018)
“I have a great roommate and all the nurses, aides, and volunteers are helpful. They help me pursue my goals. When I was in other programs I bounced around, it was uncomfortable, dirty, and devastating. Here, I have an awesome clean bed. It is awesome, perfect, and clean.”
~ Resident FG (March 2018)
“I am a far cry from where I was this time last year. I am feeling extremely blessed and cared for. I currently reside at a nursing home in Rocky Hill where the care is phenomenal. Even though my family is scattered about, I felt like part of something tonight. Amongst residents and their family and friends we we’re treated to a five course meal. They really went out of their way and went above and beyond, making us feel special. I thank them for choosing me to come here and making me feel like part of something really great. I am thankful and grateful for all of the staff here and the amazing job they do.”

“I love morning walks because I get to be out in nature. I love Bingo, Cardo, and the many activities they put on. I love it because I am good at them. I enjoy the music group on the evening because it is fun, it means friendship, laughter, and camaraderie.”
