Elizabeth Carpenter’s journey at Waterford Crossing with Synchrony Rehab is nothing short of remarkable. Facing her second stroke in just two months, Elizabeth encountered significant challenges upon her arrival. “I couldn’t stand, eat with my right hand, walk a step, or even press the buttons on the TV remote,” she recalls.
