The Willows at Harrodsburg

"The therapists were EXCELLENT!"

Resident Story

Jean’s journey at The Willows at Harrodsburg is a testament to the power of determination and expert rehabilitation. In April 2023, Jean faced a significant setback when she sustained multiple injuries from a fall, including compression fractures in her back, a partial knee replacement in her left knee, and shoulder fractures requiring surgery on both sides. Immobilized and facing weeks of non-weight-bearing restrictions, Jean’s independence seemed like a distant memory.

Before her fall, Jean reveled in an active and engaged life. She strolled around with her trusty rollator, participating in various activities such as Bingo and outings at Morning Pointe. But the fall challenged her capabilities, leaving her dependent on others for even the simplest tasks. Jean’s desire to regain her independence burned bright – she longed to walk, attend to her own bathroom needs, manage toileting hygiene, and feed herself.

Jean’s determination found a perfect match in the dedicated therapists at The Willows. With a mix of compassion, expertise, and unwavering support, these therapists guided Jean through her rehabilitation journey. Their innovative techniques and personalized approach helped Jean surpass her goals. Jean’s joy is palpable as she talks about her therapists – “AMAZING! EXCELLENT!” she exclaims.

With their guidance, Jean not only achieved her goals but exceeded them. She now stands strong, having reclaimed her self-care abilities. Jean walks again, aided by her rollator, a testament to her indomitable spirit and the transformative power of rehabilitation. Jean is quick to express her gratitude, emphasizing how wonderful The Willows at Harrodsburg has been in her recovery.

Jean’s story is one of resilience, determination, and the healing power of a supportive community. Her triumphant journey from dependency to self-sufficiency stands as an inspiration to everyone around her. The Willows at Harrodsburg, through its exceptional care and rehabilitation, has not only mended Jean’s body but also reignited the spark of her vivacious spirit.
