"My stay was great!"
My stay was great! Everything was good! It couldn't have been better! Everyone was so nice and sweet!
"The care was absolutely divine!"
I couldn't have asked for better care while I was there, it was absolutely divine!
"I would recommend this place to all people!"
When asked about her stay in our TCU, Ms. Martin said "Everything was excellent, and the therapy was great! I would recommend this place to all people!" This is Ms. Martin's second time to stay in our Transitional Care Unit. We are so thankful that she was pleased with her stay last time that she chose to come back when she needed a place to recover after her most recent hospital stay.
"Everything was good! When you need a place to go, this is the place to come!"
This is Mr. Fortenberry's third time to stay in our Transitional Care Unit. When asked how everything was this time she said "Everything was good! When you need a place to go, this is the place to come! Everyone know everybody and they treat you like family!" We are always pleased to hear these comments and to see return residents. It lets us know we are doing things right.
"I have nothing but praise for this facility and the employees!"
Mr. Roscoe Simons was discharged from our facility December 2019. Mr. Roscoe did not know about our TCU until his recent stay in the hospital from a fall. Mr. Roscoe said he was glad he found out though because he doesn’t know what he would have done without it! He said that there was a fine group of people in therapy, they made it fun! Food was good! If you must go to a place to get better that this is the place to go! I don’t know of anywhere you’ll could make improvements! I have nothing but praise for this facility and the employees!
"The nurses and therapist were great!"
Mr. Lloyd and his wife have known about our facility for a long time. He said they often came to visit friends of theirs that were in the short and long term side. Mr. Lloyd said, “Everything during my stay was good! The nurses and therapist were great! I could see improvements happening daily when I did my therapy.” Mr. Lloyd returned home with his wife and we wish him continued strength and healing.
"I Knew I Would Receive the Best Care Possible at MSCC"
Mr. Jerry Jones and his wife Cleo have resided in the Leesburg community since 1969. Mr. Jones wore a badge for 47 years and was dedicated to keeping our state of MS safe. He is a retired MS Highway Patrol, former Pelahatchie Chief of Police, and retired Rankin County SO. At MSCC we strive to always ensure that our patients have an excellent experience during their stay here. Nothing makes us happier than to hear that we have achieved our goal while they were here. We were overjoyed to have Mr. Jones enjoy his stay.
As a result of a fall, Mr. Jones had to have a partial hip replacement. Upon hospital discharge, he was not physically stable enough to go home so he chose to come to MSCC for rehab and therapy. “My wife and I knew you (MSCC of Morton) had an excellent reputation for having a good rehab department and giving good care. It was also close to home so that would make it easier for my wife to come visit me. That is why we originally chose MSCC. I knew I would receive the best care possible but it was better than I ever expected it to be! I couldn’t have asked for it to be any better! The therapist and nursing staff are #1 in my book! Everyone is so nice. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing! No regrets whatsoever! I would recommend this unit to anyone that needs a little help getting back on their feet after being in the hospital!”
Thank you Mr. Jones for choosing us to serve you!
Great Experience With the Transitional Care Unit
Mrs. McLemore knew about our Transitional Care Unit because she has stayed here before and her mother is a resident on our long term side. She said her stay before was excellent and that is why she chose to come back when she needed some additional help with her recovery after a recent surgery. She said she enjoyed it here and had a lot of fun! She made new friends that she would never forget! She loved visiting with the people here, the therapy team and nurses were fabulous and the food was great too! She said her husband really liked the facility because of how convenient and close it was to their home. It made coming to visit her a lot easier on him. We are so glad Mrs. McLemore had a great experience during her stay in our TCU and we wish continued healing for her as she returns home.
Excellent Therapy Staff
Mrs. Gibson said “The staff was patient, gentle, caring and attentive to my every need. The therapy staff was excellent!”
Nice Facility and Good People
Mr. Bradshaw said “we had a nice facility and good people working here. I’m very thankful for this TCU. I couldn’t have left the hospital, went home and lived alone but with the therapy I received from this facility I am confident to go home and live alone.”
Therapy Has Helped So Much
When we ask Ms. Martin about her stay in our TCU she said “It was fine! I loved the nursing and therapy staff! When I came here I was walking really wobble and my hands were shaking very badly. Therapy has helped me so much! My walking is much better than it was before I came here.”
My Room Was Perfect
When we ask Mrs. Linnie about her stay in our TCU she said “It was great! There was not a thing I would change about my room. I had a private room and it was perfect! I loved all the nurses and the therapy staff! They helped me a lot!”
I Wish I Could Spend More Time Here
Mrs. Webb happened upon our facility while she was in Morton one day. She said when she saw the facility back then she never thought she would need to come. But due to a recent surgery, she did. She said she was glad she came! Everything was wonderful! She said everyone was so good to me. The therapy staff, nurses, and nurses aids were great! I can’t say enough how nice they were here! She said the only thing she would change was to be able to spend more time here!
Made Major Improvements in TCU
Mr. Gray said he thought he had made major improvements while he was in our TCU. He said the nursing and therapy staff was great! He said he enjoyed his time here and there was not a thing he would change to make it any better.
Could Not Have Asked For a Better Staff
Mr. Joseph Mitcham and his wife were both very pleased with our TCU and the care he received while he was here. They both bragged on therapy and how well they were able to manage his rehab. They said that you couldn’t have ask for a better staff from therapy, nurses to CNA’s they were all really wonderful!
Not a Thing I Would Change About My Stay
My stay has been very good. Everyone was so kind and would do anything in the world you ask them too and that means a lot! There was not a thing I would change about my stay. It was as perfect as it could get!
Huge Improvements During Stay
My stay in the TCU was good! The nurses were great and the therapy staff were great too! I absolutely made huge improvements during my stay. One of the things I enjoyed most was visiting with other residents here. It was one of the best parts of my stay!
I Loved the Nursing Staff
When asked about the nursing staff in our TCU, Ms. Charlotte said, "Oh, I loved them! Especially Carolyn Keeton! She was so sweet and a great nurse to me! Now, the therapy was hard work but, I have made some big improvements while I was here. I am thankful for how far I have come and my hard work because it has allowed me to be able to return home with my family."
Beauty Shop an Unexpected Plus
My stay at here was really nice! Everyone treated me well and has been very helpful. I enjoyed being able to go to the beauty shop while I was here. That was a plus that I didn't expect.
The Nursing Staff is Exceptional
I had been at another facility for 2 1/2 months and I had not seen any improvements. I am a lot better now and have only been here 3 to 4 weeks. The nursing staff went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. I was very impressed with the team work they showed! I didn't have to wait on my nurse if I needed anything! Whoever was available would help me and it was never a problem with anything I needed. No matter how big or small it was. My stay here was great! I would highly recommend it! I had no problems.
I Haven't Found a Place Like This
They treat you like they have known you their whole life! Everything was great!
When I came here I couldn't use my right hand at all. After the therapy I got while I was here, I am able to grab and pick things up now. The therapy staff was just precious and
so were the nurses! I'm going to miss them all when I go home.
The first thing that comes to mind when I think about my stay at the TCU at MSCC of Morton is that it is really homey and that I wish I could stay! The staff is very friendly and quick to meet any need I had. When I came here I couldn’t walk two feet, now I can walk one hundred. The therapist really helped me to get a lot better.
The Next Best Thing to Home
I would like to start out by saying that the City of Morton is very fortunate to have a facility such as Mississippi Care Center. It is run by caring, loving, and capable nurses, nurse’s aids, and all of the other wonderful employees. My mother became ill and was unable to continue living alone in March of 2015. Her home was at ‘White Oak, MS’ in Smith County. She, like most, was a little apprehensive about leaving her home of 60 years, but I live within walking distance of Mississippi Care Center, so we decided that it would be a ‘good fit’ for the both of us. We were right! It wasn’t home to her, but it was the next best thing. She was very content there until her death. She received quality care, made lots of friends, and participated in many of the different activities provided, as long as she was able. She and her roommate were inseparable. They were such a sight to behold! In just a few short months, they became the closest of friends, looking after each other and telling each other ‘life long secrets’ (things that NO one else knew). I miss my Mom so very much but I am satisfied in the fact that we made the right decision with Mississippi Care Center. I recommend it highly to families with loved ones who need ‘around the clock’ care.
MSCC Was His ‘Favorite Place to Be’
I cannot praise Mississippi Care Center in Morton enough. My husband was there at least four times for therapy and then on hospice. Every person from the top to bottom and bottom to top was wonderful to him and to us in his family. They were all kind, friendly, supportive, and loving. They felt like family and treated us like we were theirs. The facilities were immaculate and well maintained. MSCC was his ‘favorite place to be’ if he couldn’t be at home. We will be forever grateful to MSCC for the wonderful care he received and for our experience there
A Member of the MSCC Family
I write this on what would have been my aunt’s 101st birthday. She died in April of 2016 at 100 years old and had been a resident of Mississippi Care Center for 18 years. The care she received through all of those years was extraordinary and she thought of herself as more than a resident . . . she was a member of that family (sometimes thinking she had more authority than she had, and at those times the staff would lovingly steer her in a more appropriate direction.) As her health and mobility permitted, she was able to move freely around the home to visit with other residents or visitors, participate in activities, and enjoy the church groups and singers who would come to entertain – or sit quietly in her room and read her Bible. Not once in those 18 years did I ever wonder if this was the right place for her – it was!
An Amazing Instrument of Blessing
Our family could never say enough positive things about the MS Care Center of Morton. They were truly an amazing instrument of blessing in our lives and the life of our precious mother/grandmother. She was a resident there for 3+ years. Every staff member from the custodial staff to the nursing staff to the administrative staff – all of them were truly loving, kind and gracious to her and to our family. The staff’s camaraderie with each other is unusual as well. They love each other and interact with each other as family, not just co-workers. They speak lovingly to the residents, making them feel special. They work hard to keep the environment clean and inviting from the front door to the resident’s rooms. Our family could not have been more pleased with the treatment our loved one received. One time she was taken to the hospital and some of the staff were faithful to call and check on her. Upon her return to the facility, she was welcomed back with so much love and tender care. We were told at the hospital that she would basically be on the last days of her life. Shortly after returning to the care center, she was better than before and made it another 2+ years! We love and appreciate them so much!
I could write SO much more, but I figured it needed to be shorter for the website. Please let me know if I can do anything else to help! We do love and appreciate you all! . . .
It’s the Best Place There Is!
I have been a patient at Mississippi Care Center of Morton three times for short-term rehabilitation and every time was better than the last! It’s the best short-term rehab facility anywhere. They were extra good to me. My every need was met. Every nurse was great and I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. It’s the best place there is!
The Facility is Like Family
I would recommend Mississippi Care Center of Morton to anyone for their short-term rehabilitation needs. The therapy services and skilled nursing care provided by this facility is building a name for itself – in the community and with area doctors. On my first follow-up visit with my neurologist, he stated that he would give Mississippi Care Center an ‘A+’ on the progress made with my right arm. This facility is very lucky to have Jacob Rigney and the entire therapy team who have assisted me in reaching my therapy goals and ultimately enabled me to return home with my wife. The facility is like family – and the nursing and therapy staff are what makes it such a wonderful healing place.
