National Disability Independence Day

Every year, on July 26th, people across the United States come together to commemorate National Disability Independence Day. This significant day marks the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), signed into law in 1990, which aims to protect and advance the rights of individuals with disabilities!

One of the most critical aspects of National Disability Independence Day is the celebration of the achievements of people with disabilities. The day recognizes their strength, determination, and the indomitable spirit with which they navigate through life’s challenges. By showcasing their accomplishments and highlighting their stories, society becomes aware of the vast potential that lies within individuals with disabilities.

Moreover, the day emphasizes the importance of creating accessible environments and implementing policies that accommodate people with disabilities. Through accessible infrastructure, inclusive education, and reasonable workplace accommodations, we enable individuals with disabilities to participate fully in all aspects of life. This inclusivity not only benefits people with disabilities but enriches the entire community by embracing diverse perspectives and talents. By engaging in dialogues, educational events, and awareness campaigns, we encourage people to be allies in the journey toward a more inclusive society. This collective effort reinforces the message that disability is not a limitation, but rather a unique aspect of the human experience that deserves respect and celebration!

At last, as we celebrate this day, let us renew our commitment to creating a world where everyone can thrive, contribute, and live a life of dignity and independence. Together, we can break down barriers, dispel misconceptions, and build a more equitable future for all!

"OMG!! This nursing home is amazing especially this one worker. Her name is Michelle. When I tell you she's so great at what she does, I mean she's great. I visit my aunt quite frequently who resides on the 7th floor. Prior to her being assigned on that floor; there were a lot of unsanitary conditions especially the stench and filth. All of a sudden I notice this girl (Michelle) has been working on the floor and all of those unsanitary conditions including the stench left. I never seen a person that take so much pride and dignity in cleaning all of those rooms and the whole floor from top to bottom. This floor is like a brand new floor that I never seen. I'm going to pay her a visit the next time I see my aunt and make her an offer at my firm as a executive assistant!"

Was successfully decanulatted and i thank the Respiratory team for doing an excellent job. The nursing staff and the anxillary staff as well are doing superb job. I reccomend this facility who has concers about their love ones or family membets who are not satisfied with the other facility to request for a transfer in this facility"

"This is a great place for rehabilitation... my father was at split rock on Baychester ave. In bronx and would go back and forth to hospital every 3 or 4 days because of carelessness with the staff... we said enough was enough when my father flatlined .WAYNE REHABILITATION has saved my fathers life. They are very good at diagnosing, rehabilitation and nutrition. Everyone there looks like they love their job. Never a problem with anyone any my father loves it there. He has recovered nicely and will be coming home soon. I highly recommend WAYNE REHABILITATION AND NURSING to everyone."

"I had a knee replacement and went to Wayne Center through a referral from a friend. I immediately noticed the ambiance of a modern facility to be very appealing clean well lit and organized. An administrative staff visited my room and explained their role and expectations. Nurses were very attentive and especially to the elderly and always smiling. Except for breakfast the food was very good quality and taste. Rehab staff was great I enjoyed working with Rosalyn she really made me work. Only drawback in rehab was they need another machine for legs. Staff was A+ from nurses, administration and maintenance-"noticed when their was a spill on the floor they would quickly clean up".
I would definitely refer anyone who is thinking of sending their parent, grandparent or loved one."
