“I’m 99 and I crushed COVID-19!”

99 years young patient at The Hamlet Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center at Nesconset, ‪Anne Giardino, kicked COVID-19 to the curb, celebrating this victory with the community’s staff.

As COVID-19 continues to rear its ugly head throughout the nation, these moments are large victories; for the staff at The Hamlet, these are the best, most defining moments throughout the pandemic.

Anne Giardino was admitted to The Hamlet after a hospitalization in early April, testing positive for COVID-19 while a resident at Amber Court Assisted Living in Smithtown. Giardino was admitted needing supervision with walking, eating, and physical therapy, and a few weeks later, walked out of The Hamlet on her own, free of COVID-19.

This momentous moment couldn’t have been achieved without the tenacity and strength of the team members at The Hamlet, along with the strength and determination of Anne Giardino.

“We are so grateful for this wonderful moment,” shared Avi Goldstein, Administrator of The Hamlet. “I am beyond proud of Anne and the amazing team we have here.”
