Therapy Success Story

April 20, 2021
Some people just make you smile! Some people make you glad that you have been blessed to have them pop into your life even if only for a short time. This is how we would describe our friend Mark.

Mark came to Emerald Pointe because of health issues that sent him to the hospital. His doctor had been treating him successfully but with the support of Mark's family suggested that therapy at a rehabilitation facility would be a good idea for Mark. Mark's initial reaction, "No Way!" then as he thought about it, he said, "it can't hurt."

That is how we were granted the fortune of meeting this pleasant guy. Mark lives alone and needed help with getting his skills back up with his ADLs (Acts of Daily Living). He was sent to make sure he could bathe, feed himself, walk and just take care of himself well when he gets home.

Mark arrived Easter Sunday and the next day, his therapy began. He worked most closely with Garrett and Wes, "they were there every step of the way". He decided he was not going to have the mindset of "when can I get out of here," but "how soon does my progress meet therapy goals and when are they pleased with my progress. When Garrett [occupational therapist] and Wes [physical therapist] say it's ok to go, then I will go."

Mark commented on his excellent treatment by staff, that the food is good and he has been "eating like a horse!"

"I would absolutely refer friends to Emerald Pointe; actually, I already have."

Mark, we are so thankful that the staff at Emerald Pointe could assist you with your recovery. Thank you for making us smile and thank you for working so hard to get yourself home!
