(CNN) -- At her research lab at the University of Louisville, neuroscientist Susan Harkema turned her back to her study subject to check a reading on a computer screen. "Hey Susie, look at this," the patient called out to her. "I can move my toe!" Startled, Harkema spun around. The purpose of her study, which involves sending electrical stimulation to broken spinal cords, was to learn more about nerve pathways, not to actually make patients move.

To the staff at Sachem Center for Health & Rehab: Thanks to all of you who provided excellent care to our mother and grandmother Lena McNeil. My husband and I felt compelled to write this letter to let all those that supported Lena know how much it meant to us. The level of care of superb and we truly feel she could not have been in a better facility. We want to especially thank the personnel in both the Elmwood and Sachem sections of the nursing home. She received care and compassion from all that attended to her needs. We also want to commend the activities group who provided her social stimulation. Lena herself, often talked about how well she was treated and how hard caretakers worked. We know she enjoyed her time at Sachem. It is due to those who were very thoughtful and generous in carrying out their duties. She so appreciated that gracious kindness that was provided during her stay. Lena has shown so many how to live with joy, dignity and love. We will miss her forever. Thanks to all!
