Success Story – Dec – Betty Moats
Mrs. Betty Moats lived with her husband very independently with her mobility and even drove to take care of errands for her and her husband. Unfortunately, Mrs. Moats had an episode that caused her to fall at home and was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with a neck fracture. The Therapy team focused her treatment on rebuilding strength, restoring mobility, relieving pain, and regaining the skills to help Betty achieve her goals: “To go home and do all the things I did before.”. The therapist also challenged her with activities she would encounter every day at home, like navigating uneven surfaces, such as going from a concrete surface to grass, and climbing stairs. Congrats to Mrs. Moats and all the progress she has made to return home!
