One thing you’ve got to know about me right off the bat is that nothing keeps me down for long–and I do mean nothing. When I suffered a fall at home that required a hip replacement I was determined to do everything I could to get back home as quickly as possible. Whatever I do I try to give it my all, and that’s how I approached my recovery.
When I arrived at Bayside Health & Rehabilitation Center, I was in a wheelchair and felt like a fish out of water. I’m not the kind of person that likes to sit still, and I couldn’t wait to get out of that chair. The LifeWorks Rehab program at Bayside Health & Rehabilitation Center was a perfect fit for me. My therapy began immediately and that was exactly what I wanted. My therapists knew I was a hard worker, and they knew how to push me hard, too. I gave every ounce of energy I had, and did everything they asked and more. Sometimes I think the therapists had trouble keeping up with me!
I was in and out in just five weeks, and I know I wouldn’t have been able to make such a quick recovery without the care I received at Bayside Health & Rehabilitation Center. It was such a great experience. I’ve been a realtor for more than 40 years, and I have no intention of slowing down–I was making calls while I was still at Bayside, and met with a client on the same day I went home. I’ve always been young at heart, and LifeWorks Rehab helped me get back to my normal, healthy, active self. I could never have made the same recovery without LifeWorks Rehab.
