I came to The Gardens at Blue Ridge having fractured my knee. When I first got here, I was in so much pain, I was in tears! But once I began therapy that all started to change. There I met a young lady named Karla, she was my PT Instructor. Karla became my best friend at the facility. Each day, she talked me through the therapy. At times, when I felt like giving up, she was there by my side to encourage me. Karla (and Brenda!) believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself – for that I am especially grateful!
The entire therapy staff was patient with me during this challenging period and as time went on, things became easier and easier. I eventually began to accomplish things I thought I’d never be able to do again! For example, the stairs were my biggest fear! But with each climb the physical therapy team was there to talk me through it.
When the time came to prepare for discharge, Carrie and Dan stepped in to help facilitate my transition home – it was happening!
Thanks to the therapy team, we did it! WE DID IT!!!
I’d like to recognize the following therapists for exceptional work and helping me get to this point!
Karla, Carrie, Brenda, Dan, Laura, Eric, and Donny. I will miss everybody!
