Nursing staff and Aide were extremely helpful, kind and compassionate. The facility was very clean. It was impressive and refreshing to be in this beautifully crafted environment created for our elder folks. Each department has a hand in creating the outcome of presentation. All staff deserve recognition. Truly impressed!-Hospice Vender

My husband is at Pomperaug Woods for rehab following surgery. We can not say enough about how wonderful EVERYTHING is! The staff are so caring and attentive, the food is excellent (he even had lamb chops, his favorite). Sam checks on him daily to ensure the food is to his liking and if he would like anything different. OT/PT staff is focused, encouraging and so supportive! Angela, Lorraine and Amber are amazing nurses! The aides are simply the best…too many to name! Janel, Courtney, Kim and Jen are always there with a smile and to make sure his stay is the best it can be . The atmosphere is unlike and facility or rehab we have experienced. Thank you to EVERYONE!

I have been partnered with Pomperaug Woods as a clinical site for my CNA students and I can tell you that in 13 years of owning my CNA school in CT, i have seen a lot of long term care facilities but nothing compares to Pomperaug Woods. The facility is beautiful, 10 stars! The staff is exceptionally helpful and courteous. The level of care provided exceeds any expectation. The nursing staff communicates well with my team of instructors and always help to provide a positive atmosphere for both the students and the residents. We are thrilled with our experience with Pomperaug Woods. They are a wonderful example of what all long term care facilities/healthcare facilities should be! I am proud to be affiliated with their company! Thank you Pomperaug Woods for setting such a wonderful example and for providing such exceptional health care!
