Thankful resident praises MapleCreek rehabilitation staff

Marty Murphy remembers undergoing physical therapy with the staff at MapleCreek five years ago and how it helped her get back on her feet. By the time she needed them again two years ago, MapleCreek’s new rehabilitation center at The Lodge had been built. The compassionate, knowledgeable staff members there focus on therapy following surgery or illness, offering physical, occupational and speech therapy.


After falling down and breaking every bone in her foot two years ago, Marty underwent surgery and was sent to another facility for six weeks. She came back to MapleCreek when a bed opened up at The Lodge, where she was able to get expert help from MapleCreek’s determined therapists.


“If not for them, I would not be walking today; I absolutely would not,” Marty said. “I’m so grateful.”  


In addition to working with the rehab therapists, Marty received daily help from Bruce, her aid on the 100 Hall at The Lodge. “He got me to get up and do things when I didn’t want to do them,” she said.


Recently with the help of a friend, Marty Murphy wrote down the story of her rehabilitation journey and expressed her thankfulness to the MapleCreek rehabilitation staff led by Reanna Dawson, rehab services manager (in photo, right).  You can read Marty's piece here.
