Dream. Believe. Achieve.
Orphaned at a young age, Jean McKinney grew up between foster homes. A difficult upbringing for any child, Jean never the less learned to keep her shoulders straight and her head held high. She promised herself to never let her circumstances determine her outlook. So, it was no surprise when Jean came to The Mansion for rehabilitation services, she was determined to take on and rise above this new challenge. Jean made it clear to us all – she’s got this!
Working with Jean, our physical, occupational and speech therapy teams developed an comprehensive rehabilitation plan with strategic objectives – our goal was to help Jean improve her activities of daily living (ADL) and mobility task performance levels so that she could safely return home.
Jean’s commitment and can-do spirit was an inspiration to us all and a reminder of what one can accomplish when one believes. Jean, you’ve got believers in all of us here at The Mansion – we’re proud of you!
Jean has since returned to her home in Sunbury, PA. She’s loved and cared for by her beautiful children and their growing families (Jean has over 70 grandchildren and great grandchildren!). Jean once shared, “I grew up as an orphan living in foster homes all my life, I vowed that when I had children of my own I would take care of them, and that’s what I did – they all grew up and got married and had kids of their own.”
