My Mother was a patient for 6 weeks. The staff worked very closely with her cardiologist to ensure that she received the very best care. She also had physical and occupational services which helped her get stronger and back home. We are so thankful to have a facility like this in our hometown, Appomattox. Being close to home helped make it easy for my father and siblings to visit. Thanks again for everything.

When looking for a facility to recover from my knee surgery I selected Appomattox Health and Rehab Center. The therapy staff was excellent and the care and concern shown to me and my family by the Nurses was great! I am now back at home doing everything that I want to do. If I need surgery in the future I will go back for sure.

Shocking. Patients neglected, no amenities/services, understaffed, poor heating/cooling system, everything in other negative reviews absolute truth, have seen it with my own eyes. If you are compelled to send a loved one to this hole, you will have to be extremely proactive in their care. Someone will HAVE to sit and stay with the patient 24/7 because the staff literally will let them die. Staff is friendly and tries to help, but in many cases simply do not have the training for the job. Our family was appalled and sickened by our experience.

For a room to cost over $200 there are no TV's and phones. Patients have to provide their own. Equipment did not work right. Patient pushed call bell and nurses sat at station not answering for 15 minutes. Employees complained to patients about things other patients did. Every menu that was ordered came back everytime with something wrong on it. They have a whirlpool tub for patients but none of the employees know how to operate it. I would not recommend this facility to anyone.

Employees stole from residents. Lack of professionalism from CNA. Employees took advantage of families and patients, accepting large expensive gifts and family heirlooms. Communication was good most of the time. Patients receive wrong medications or are unsupervised when needed to be. Clothing was lost in laundry.

I was a patient at AHRC for 2 weeks in March for PT/OT after I suffered a broken leg and surgery. I couldn't have asked for a better place to recup. and receive treatment. I have already referred people to this facility.
