Exceeding Expectations at Laurel Health Care Company

Exceeding Expectations

At Laurel Health Care Company, it is our mission to create a legacy by exceeding the needs and expectations of those we serve while embracing The Laurel Way. We understand that caring is more than providing excellent medical and guest services on a daily basis. It also includes being a companion and treating each guest with the utmost dignity, respect and compassion.

The Laurel Way of Caring can be found in a warm smile, a kind word or a comforting touch. We are passionate about our mission and it is reflected in the letters we receive from former guests and family members.

Clarence, a recent guest at The Laurels of Coldwater, is happy to be back in Branch County after an eventful return from Florida in April. One afternoon, after receiving chemotherapy for lung cancer in Jackson, Clarence suffered a stroke while doing yard work. Shortly after the stroke, Clarence was transferred to the Laurels of Coldwater for rehab to rebuild his strength. Clarence and his favorite therapist, Penny, meet each morning around 6AM, which Clarence states he enjoys because "it gets my day going, and she really works me good, then I can go on with my day." He's now able to walk again, with the assistance of his of his walker, and is getting stronger each day.

Clarence has rebuilt enough strength to resume his chemotherapy and is overjoyed to be returning home to his wife, Elaine. The couple will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary in July and are looking forward to being able to resume helping their children with the campground they own in Leonidas and tending to their garden together.

“We have been in a few nursing homes, and this is by far the cleanest, and everyone is always happy!  The food is good and always plentiful.  They have wonderful activities and very good therapy.  And by the way, some of my favorite people work there.”
