Lois Stickloon, 87, came to The Gardens at York Terrace following a difficult mastectomy surgery. Admittedly, she was uncertain of what the future would hold and worried she would never be able to return home.
Working with Lois, our physical therapy team developed a tailored rehabilitation plan with strategic objectives – our goal was to help Frances regain her independence so she could return home.
Each day, Lois met her challenges with fortitude and determination, her unwavering spirit was truly inspiring! Lois dreamed of returning home, together – with a lot of hard work – we’ve made that goal a reality!
Lois shared, “I enjoyed being here for this experience. I think it helped me a lot. It gave me a lot of confidence. I enjoyed meeting the people that live here—it’s a pleasant place to be.“
When asked if she had any final thoughts or sentiments regarding her time at York Terrace, she said, “Don’t be afraid to take a chance on trying it (Skilled Rehab Program) if you need help. They (The Gardens at York Terrace staff) were my saviors”.
