Success Story: Martha

What are ten steps? Well, for Martha, it was the one thing standing between her and returning home…

Martha Normand turned to Chicopee Gardens following a hospitalization after a fall at her home. Suffering a L4 vertebral fracture, Martha was experiencing significant pain and her mobility was limited due to the wearing of a required back brace. Working with Martha, our OT and PT teams developed a tailored plan and rehab objectives – our primary goal was to get Martha home, one step at a time!

Each day, Martha returned for her therapy sessions; committed and brave. With hard work and a focus on learning compensatory strategies Martha finally faced those ten stairs, conquered them and is now back home at last, getting better each day!

Please join us in congratulating Martha upon reaching this triumphant milestone!

Keep climbing Martha, keep climbing!
