Michele A. Boone, PT, NHA of Columbia County started her career as a physical therapist in 1984 after graduating from the University of Scranton. In 1986, she opened her own physical therapy company, Valley Rehabilitation, specializing in providing rehabilitation services to residents in long-term care facilities and helping them to enjoy a better quality of life. That same year she became licensed as a Nursing Home Administrator. Years later, Michele expanded on her passion for helping the residents of long-term care facilities by becoming the Nursing Home Administrator for her family’s business, Grandview Health Homes, Inc.
Michele grew up surrounded by the business after her parents bought a 15-bed nursing home facility when she was a young child. Michele’s fondest memories were of spending her holidays, birthdays and special occasions with the residents of the nursing home that she considered part of her own family. She developed a fondness for the many residents she called friends and decided that she wanted to give back and could do so through her work at Grandview.
Michele now spends her days running the Grandview business, along with her brother Michael, and helping to provide an environment for the residents and their families that they can proudly call home. She oversees a staff and helps to assure that residents are provided the highest quality of care in a safe, comfortable environment. Michele believes that these residents have taught her and her generation so much that it is important to give back just as much to them.
In addition to Grandview, Michele still provides physical, occupational and speech therapy services through Valley Rehabilitation, only now to younger children in school districts as well as long-term care facilities.
Michele is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and the Pennsylvania Department of Directors of Nursing Administrators (PADONA). In her free time, she loves the outdoors and enjoys camping, mountain biking and traveling. Michele resides in Stillwater, Columbia County.
