Hear from some of our residents, guests, and families about their experience with Generations at Rock Island.
The staff working at Generations at Rock Island is excellent, and the people here are very friendly. It is my first time up north, and I got to see snow. I used to work at a restaurant, and weighed 180lbs. in high school. My goal is to increase my mobility and get home to Huntsville, Alabama. I know with everyone’s help I will reach my goal.

After a serious leg injury requiring surgery at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics, I spent three months at Generations at Rock Island receiving orthopedic, rehabilitative, and bariatric treatment. I received excellent care and found the nurses, CNAs and other staff to be supportive and caring professionals who kept the best interests of their patients at heart. With the support of the staff I was able to lose a significant amount of weight. The physical therapy department provided an outstanding program focused on my individual needs of improving overall strength, regaining lost mobility, and rehabilitating my injured leg. Their constant support, encouragement and coaching played a huge role in my recovery. I was able to return home, and will return to work soon. I give the folks at Generations at Rock Island a great deal of credit for my recovery, and I can certainly recommend the facility to others.
