Our OT staff (Phil, OT; Hector, COTA; and Sergio, COTA prn) were there from the beginning which we have affectionately called Hell Week. We had no PT staff other than Vanessa Munoz, PTA/Fearless Leader/TPM and myself during the first week.  They not only kept therapy in high gear but took CNA shifts including night shifts; came in on weekends; showered residents; weighed residents; fed residents and the list could go on and on.  They are true HEROs!!⁠
I have to include a huge Shoutout for Vanessa who has been a warrior.  She has worked every weekend since the inception and  has been side-by-side with the staff leading by example!⁠
The remaining team that was out on quarantine is mostly back (COTA and SLP still out due to COVID illness). We all work in full PPE every day and continue to provide our residents/patients the human element of recovery.  It’s been a privilege to work with this fantastic team.⁠
A heartfelt thanks to all that have sent out prayers; positive vibes and food/goodies.⁠
All are greatly appreciated.⁠
Thank you!!"

Celebrating our Patient’s Success 

This is our skilled rehab patient, Mr. Hammond. He has been at our facility for two weeks for a broken hip. He made good progress and reached his goals just in time for his 88th birthday. Our rehab department  went out and got him a card and a pecan pie (his favorite) to celebrate his birthday, which happened to be the same day as his last therapy session. Our entire gym surprised him and sang happy birthday which brought him to tears. He said, “Thank you for making me feel so special on my birthday.”
