Carol Shea“I can’t believe Grayson County has a facility like this. You would expect this level of care and expertise in Dallas or Plano but to have it here is a blessing. They have everything – compassion, great program, great staff with great expertise, great food, beautiful facility.

I tell everybody about Carrus and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.”

Ron Vardenman“The service at Carrus was so much more than I expected. Keeping my family informed was important to me and my recovery. Any time I needed something, someone at Carrus was there within seconds. Everybody took such good care of me. They not only cared for me, they cared about me. They took me in and fixed me up.

I can’t say enough good things about Carrus. They were so good to call my wife, Cheryl, any time they were preparing for a significant procedure, so she could be there. In fact, she wasn’t restricted to specific visiting hours.

One of the things I liked best was the quiet. And everybody encouraged me. To the Carrus staff I would say, ‘Thank you!’ I owe you my life.

Carrus is the best place to be!”

Jim Herpeche“I am not exaggerating when I say that there was not one person at Carrus who didn’t treat me like I was a member of the family. I got to where I loved them like family, and I think they did me too.

The facility is great. They have a courtyard with a turtle in the pond. And there’s a big pond out back that’s just full of koi. There’s a sidewalk that goes around it, and my daughter would bring me fish food in little bags.

I’d spend two or three hours out there in my wheelchair on a nice day, feeding the fish. I’d share my fish food with other people so they could feed the fish too. I really enjoyed that.

I was happy every morning I woke up there.”

Cal Baker“My first impression of Carrus was from the road; that it looked like a nice place.

I had planned on going straight home after being released from the hospital, but there is no way my wife could have taken care of me in the shape I was in. I asked the hospital staff to see about Carrus and I was really pleased with the decision.

I spent three weeks there. The Carrus team was helpful and always cheerful. Their rehab helped me get back on my feet after surgery. They were there any time of the day or night if I needed anything.

They work with you according to your interests; so the physical therapists had me working with a putter, encouraging me all the way. And the occupational therapists showed me how to use a grabber device to pick a ball up off the floor so I could throw it for my dog.

It’s important to have confidence in the people who are looking out for you. I don’t know of a better place I could have been. I got great care at Carrus.”
