The patients at our partner skilled nursing facilities are not shy about expressing their appreciation for the care they receive from their occupational therapy team members on their road to recovery. We wanted to share a few of the comments we have received over the last month from the individuals impacted the mostâ€¦our patients.
Lake Charles Care Center: Lauren Green, OT & Jessica Cornner, COTA
Jessica and Lauren have changed my life! Not only when I get down with my therapy, but personally. They both always smile and are always ready to get on with whatever task is ahead. Therapy hurts and they pull no punches, but if there were any two people I could have on my side, it would be my therapy team! Jessica and Lauren, I’ll never be able to repay you, but I can tell you I will never forget you. I’ve got so much further to go, but with your help I will have memories to last the rest of my life! Love, Esther
LaSalle Nursing Home: Melanie Lewellyan, OT & Lindsey Allen, COTA
Just over a year ago I suffered a broken back. Subsequent surgery and prolonged bed rest caused me to lose the strength in my legs and the dexterity of my fingers. I was also attacked by arthritis in my hips and hands. When I began PT and OT, I was so gratified that full use of my hands and fingers began to return, and I give full credit to the occupational therapists for the magnificent job they are accomplishing in working with me. They are very dedicated and demonstrate a lot of compassion for the residents they associate with. Sincerely, Jack M. Willis
