Resident Story

Bonnie Johnston’s journey at Saint Andrews Health Campus is a testament to resilience and the power of dedicated rehabilitation. After experiencing a heart attack, Bonnie found herself in need of extra support to regain her strength and independence.

Before her heart attack, Bonnie led a bustling life, working full-time and actively participating in her grandchildren’s activities. However, upon arriving at Saint Andrews, she faced challenges she hadn’t encountered before, struggling with basic tasks like getting into bed and walking down the hall unaided.

Despite these obstacles, Bonnie had a clear goal in mind: to walk again without the aid of a walker.

Her journey is a testament to the transformative impact of rehabilitation and the importance of community support in the healing process.
