“I began my stay at Cortlandt Healthcare on October 24, 2011. I was recovering from knee surgery and my doctor said that I’d like the facility. Soon after that I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Since I needed long-term care, I chose to stay at Cortlandt Healthcare. I have never regretted my decision. The therapists in the rehab department are dedicated to restoring their patients in body and spirit. I see the look of pride in both patient and therapist when someone who entered in a stretcher, walk out either unassisted or with a walking aid. The long-term care staff are just as dedicated to helping their resident live a life of care and dignity. In fact, most residents and staff have bonded like a family. So Happy Anniversary Cortlandt Healthcare. I’m probably not going to get flowers and candy, but I will get another day surrounded loving, caring friends.”
-V. Pombo

“Every month Cortlandt Healthcare has a birthday party for residents born in that month. The main dining room is decorated with brightly colored posters sending out birthday wishes. Usually the musician we have playing for us starts off with a sing-along. There’s a brief pause during which the birthday people are announced. Then it’s back to music birthday cards and cake! As the party continues the music gets livelier and more people dance. I don’t like to brag but we have some great dancers among our residents. One of my friends from my old job complained to me that at forty her dancing days would soon be behind her. I invited her to be my guest at the next Cortland Healthcare birthday party. When she meets my new friends she’ll have a better outlook on aging.”
– Virginia Pombo, President of Resident Council


“For nursing home residents, winter is three months spent inside because the weather outside is frightful. Thanks to the staff at Cortlandt Healthcare, we’re not bored. In addition to bingo, bowling and wheelchair yoga, we recently had two fantastic parties. On January 23rd, we had our Snow Ball, which is an ‘informal formal.’ Those residents that had fancy clothes had a chance to get dressed up. Activity leaders looked wonderful in their best outfits as they served us hot hors d’oeuvres and ginger ale in ‘champagne glasses.’ The Snow Ball always adds a touch of glamour. The Super Bowl party was super fun. The main lobby had football themed decorations. The kitchen staff did an outstanding job. We had three types of dip, chips, carrot and celery sticks, two types of chicken wings and two types of sandwiches. I sat between a Patriots fan and a Seahawks fan. When asked what team l was rooting for l truthfully said “The commercials and the half-time show.” We all had a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone. We appreciate your hard work.”
– Virginia Pombo


“Cortlandt Healthcare treats me like a king. The staff here bends over backwards to fulfill the every need of the residents!”
– T. Thomson


“My husband, Pasquale Scalfaro, was a patient at your facility from 8/29 to 11/24/14. We would like to express our appreciation to the third floor staff for all they did to aid in his recovery. Rather than filling out individual Sunshine Cards we would like to thank Joan, Laura, Peggy, Eric, Jenn, Millie, Eunice, Lavina, Joanna, Maria, Jellisa (and any other of the nursing staff that I may have left out). They were all caring and responsive to his needs. They also showed patience with his limited speech and were quick to smile and share a laugh with him. I can’t give enough praise to Maryann and Sean of the therapy staff. They were very professional in working with him but treating him like a family member. Both Sean and Maryann always took time to answer my many questions and keep me updated on his progress.

Moishe and Renata listened to my concerns and did their best to try to resolve issues that I raised, weather it was about paperwork, quality of food, staffing or fixing the leaking toilet in his room.

Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to all.”
-Geraldine S.
