Abbie’s Story: Finding Independence Once More
Abbie Myers was referred to therapy upon admission to Evergreen Village with a diagnosis of degenerative disc disease, which caused a gradual decline in strength and function. She could no longer complete self-care tasks without assistance and was completely dependent upon her power wheelchair. Abbie completed a comprehensive therapy program including physical therapy and occupational therapy services.
Abbie’s progress during therapy was incredible! With strong perseverance toward meeting her goals, she is a whole new person! She is now walking with a cane around her apartment, can transfer into and out of vehicles for community travel, and is completing basic care tasks independently.
Abbie is a leader at Evergreen Village. She attends most group activities, has built solid friendships, and is an advocate for others. We are very proud of Abbie and her outstanding success!
