Wendy is going home!

Wendy graduatingThis is a day for celebration for Wendy who is ready to go home.  She has been away from home for three months while she was treated at a local acute care hospital and then transferred to Northeast Rehab for her rehabilitation needs.

Wendy made amazing progress with us.  When she arrived she was incapable of moving her own body from one place to another and needed assistance of a Hoyer Lift (a machine that can carries a person to a desired nearby location).  Now she can walk on her own and climbed the stairs on her own to receive her diploma!

In her acceptance speech Wendy said, “I  would not be here if not for all of you.  I really appreciate everything you did for me and am so happy that I came to Northeast Rehab.  You are a great group of people who never gave up on me.”

Wendy was so thankful for the care she received that she wrote a note to her team: Wendy getting her diploma

“When I first got here I was nervous, but the whole entire team worked very hard to keep me safe and healthy.  Today, I want you to know how impressed I was with everyone that worked with me over these weeks.  I will always remember how helpful and friendly and professional everyone was.  So thank you from the bottom of my heart for your care.”
