Recover Close to Home

Once upon a time, patients stayed in the hospital for sufficiently long periods so that when released, they expected to go directly home. That’s not always the case in traditional hospitals these days, and many patients require intermediary assistance until they are strong enough to manage without medical supervision. They look for a welcoming facility that offers every advantage for getting well, from advanced technology to authentic caring.
After his surgery, Cal Baker thought he would be able to return to home quickly. But he knew his wife wouldn’t be able to take care of him right away. So he talked with the hospital staff, requesting Carrus as an interim choice between the hospital and home.
Carrus Hospitals employ highly skilled, experienced staff team members who provide multidimensional treatment programs that are individualized for each patient’s unique medical needs. After being at Carrus Rehabilitation Hospital, Cal had high praises for the staff. “They were there any time of the day or night if I needed anything,” he says. “It’s important to have confidence in the people who are looking out for you.”
“Things are a lot easier at Carrus than they are at home,” says Karen Colclasure, a former patient in both Carrus Specialty Hospital and Carrus Rehabilitation Hospital. “I didn’t even know there was such a place as Carrus. People are considerate all the time. Their general attitude was so nice; there wasn’t a grumpy grouch in the bunch.”
Family members and friends appreciate the convenience of being able to visit frequently without the expense of travelling to Dallas. Carrus Specialty and Rehabilitation Hospitals are located in Sherman within a beautiful facility designed to enhance patient comfort and reduce stress. It includes four landscaped courtyards and a koi-filled pond at the edge of the property. Offering constant encouragement, the staff members at Carrus provide patients and families with the ultimate caregiving experience.
Many patients respond well to being in a familiar area, where they feel most at home, where they can enjoy seeing family, where they can read the local paper, where their granddaughter can bring a finger-painted masterpiece.
