Kudos! I wish to thank the staff and management of Beechtree Center for the fabulous Thanksgiving dinner on 11/18/17. I truly enjoyed it and from what I have heard the other residents and their families did as well. It was obvious that a lot of very hard work went into it and the staff looked like were enjoying also. It was quite an accomplishment in view of the fewer numbers of staff and it is wonderful to be able to comment on such a positive thing. To all involved, a big thank you from the heart!
The people at Beechtree are so friendly and the Activities Department do such a great job with the residents. They provide games, musical performances and church services. What I really like is that in the spring/summer the residents are taken outdoors to have BBQ’s and get to enjoy the nice weather.

“Good things happened in the rehab, very wonderful people. I learned so much from them. I can’t say enough about them. Manny is the absolute best! The entire PT and OT team-Beechtree is lucky to have them.
Overall, the care I received was good. The first bed I was in was uncomfortable but they switched it out for another one and it was much better and I was able to sleep well. They accommodated my needs and provided me with alternate meals per my request and I appreciated that.
If circumstances required me to have to stay anywhere again, I would choose to go back to Beechtree again!”

“My cousin stayed at the Beechtree in Ithaca for about a month and a half in early 2019 before being transferred to a Hospice facility. While there she received very good care from a hard working dedicated staff. Our family was extremely impressed with the personal attention and consideration she received from the facility’s administrator and his team. They went way out of their way to accommodate all her requests and concerns – even working with the family to arrange a special “cooking” event which my cousin really wanted to happen just one more time. The director, Mr. Williams, personally visited my cousin often to make sure she was getting everything she needed – both in terms of her health needs (medications, etc) and her general well-being and satisfaction with her stay at the Beechtree. They also were great at working with the family regarding financial arrangements and payments – which helped to alleviate a great deal of stress for us. I have high regard for the Beechtree and recommend them to others.”
