The care at Issaquah Nursing & Rehabilitation serves varying populations of individuals. Many residents residing in our facility require several days or weeks of medical care and therapy before they can safely return home or to a lower level of care. The remaining residents require long-term skilled nursing care as they are unable to return home due to advanced age or illness. Most of these residents will remain with us for the rest of their life. Based on needs, some patients receive therapy services to restore or, where possible, improve to prior physical functioning. For residents needing long-term skilled nursing care, the attending physician and facility staff will assist the individual with their activities of daily living.

To all our wonderful friends at Issaquah Nursing and Rehabilitation, "Thank you to those who gave Keith such considerate, skillful and sensitive care, from day one throughout his last day. As well as to those who cared for his medical needs. Who guided him through and included him in as many social activities as possible. To those who provided support services for his two year stay-cooking, cleaning, laundry, dietary, speech therapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. And to those who had kind words, a smile, and a conversation-for me each and every day. A huge thank you from the bottom of my heart."
“Care was excellent. Lots of personal attention. All of the staff is very pleasant. Your wound nurse is outstanding.”
"The one thing I am grateful for, if there is anything to be grateful for having a shattered ankle, it is the humility and compassion I attained at this Center. As I went through my therapy feeling all sad and frustrated about my issues, I was able to see people both older and younger than myself, struggle with tasks that I take for granted every day. As I watched the therapist work with these people and the patience and understanding they showed and the excitement, the residents showed when they were successful in their efforts; I realized just how fortunate I was with just a broken ankle. I feel that the life lessons that I learned made my stay at this Center worth more than just getting my ankle better. It has made me a better person and I thank you for that."
I am very satisfied and grateful for all the people who were helping me without any hesitation. Employees were very nice to talk to me any time if I wanted to have a little conversation. I am thankful so much they have given me excellent rehab and I am walking again. I highly recommend this place to anyone who needs healing, you will take good care of them.
Lisa, I am your #1 fan! This is such a well-run organization it is evident that there is a strong leader at the helm. I am happy to say, after being here a week, I have no complaints. My room, staff help, food, OT and PT deserve the highest marks. Thank you, Lisa!
Charity - Thank you for all your hard work and inventive methods you used to perk my interest! Everyone should have a therapist as motivated as you are, it makes a difference to the patient. You always have a friend.
Staff proved both competent and caring. They not only worked with residents but also got resident input to ensure they were meeting their needs. I recommend Issaquah Nursing & Rehab highly.
Felt like home, everyone was very kind to me. Food was wonderful, this will always be my second home. Thank you and your staff for a nice time in your nursing home.
Thank you for my work-out Connie. What a wonderful team! I have been encouraged and helped. You are a fine physical therapist.
I sincerely want to thank the entire staff for making my stay at Issaquah Nursing & Rehab such a pleasant experience. To single out a person is impossible as all of your come to my mine. Thank you all for your eagerness and encouragement for my recovery, love & hugs!
Sam is such a caring person with a heart of gold, he really cares for his resident and it shows by the way they react to him. He is a keeper for sure. I have witnessed Sam work his magic many times.
Lisa, you're doing a fine job here. Thank you for coming to Overlake Hospital to welcome me! I have loved the staff here. Thank you for everything.
Tami and Charity, these two girls from physical therapy treated me wonderfully, but there was always a firm hand. If I didn't feel good, we would start laughing and then they could get me to do anything, whatever was needed. Both are funny, kind and hardworking.
Michael (OT) worked with me nearly 3 1/2 weeks. The left shoulder was very sore and I sheltered it all the time. He did a lot of research on his own time about adhesive capsulitis and found exercises that made a huge difference. It still cracks and pops but I now know how to use it and avoid the pain
Sandy, it is with sincere appreciation that I write to thank you personally for all you have done in my rehabilitation here at Issaquah Rehab. Your caring about individuals and their goals to become better are greatly appreciated.
Your service is great. Everyone is very friendly and right there to help you. The food is very good! If I ever need a nursing home I will be back!
Glory, many thanks for recognizing I had internal problems. Your fast action in the middle of the night probably saved my life.
Jamie, Connie, Chris. Charity and all the therapists, you are the best! I never in my 91 years had such a painful time. But with their support and "pushing" each day became a better day - we made it!
