“I am from South Africa and have cerebral palsy with spastic quadriplegia. I’ve been coming here since I was five years old. Today I’m 17 and thanks to the Brucker Biofeedback I’m more independent than I could have ever hoped for.” – Kimberly
“I’m confined to a wheelchair for the rest of my life. So I started the Brucker Biofeedback program in 2006. How has it helped me so far? I can ride a stationary bike for 30 minutes. I can walk with braces and a walker. I used to fall over and lose my balance in the car, but now my back muscles are strong enough to keep me from falling over. ” – Jennifer

“It is so comforting to me to have a facility like Miami Jewish Health Systems in which to place my mom, especially since I am so far away.

Low Income Housing for the Elderly
“We moved to Stanley Axlrod UTD Tower in May 1996 after waiting for several years for an apartment. For us, it has been great. I enjoy the grounds and the proximity of the bay. My husband loves to sit outside and I spend hours reading and enjoying the beauty of Miami. Improvements in the building have been very successful and we have everything we need within our reach: The beauty salon, library, small grocery store, exercise room, etc.” – Resident, Maria S. Lecours
“I am always treated with love and care. They work hard to make sure I am comfortable.” – PACE participant
“It is all encompassing, excellent care. If someone has an ingrown toenail or a lump in the breast, a doctor can see him or her right away. We have ready access to our doctors and nurses. Otherwise, it could take days, weeks even, to get it evaluated by a doctor.” – Ann K, PACE participant
“They spoil you here. Your medication is measured out so you don’t have to remember what to take when. If you have an appointment with the doctor, they just tell you when it is and they come and pick you up.” – PACE participant
“I was very hesitant of going to any Nursing Facility for Rehab because of the awful experience I had in February at another facility. At the other facility they were not only uncaring individuals who were being worked too hard, too many patients to care for, but the place was downright dirty. I have explained to my friends and co-workers that Miami Jewish Home is a 4-star resort with personal trainers and great room service. I am not joking. You have made my recovery a pleasant experience. The facilities are not only clean and beautiful, the staff is cheerful and well-trained, and the therapy is solid, strong, and caring.” – Former Skilled Unit Patient
“The service your staff provides is world class. You should feel very proud of the team that works with you. They live up to and beyond expectations.” – Former Skilled Unit Patient
“Words cannot express how we feel about each and every member of the hospital team. Their extraordinary professionalism and empathy are remarkable.” – Family member of former Douglas Gardens Hospital patient
“My mom asked that I write to acknowledge the exceptional care that she received during her stay. Visiting her every day I noticed that she was cared for with compassion and her every need was taken care of with a smile.” – Family member of former Douglas Gardens Hospital patient
