Resident Story

Larry Henderson’s life took an unexpected turn when he fell at home, cracking a rib and lacerating his liver. After spending two weeks in St. V’s ICU and another twelve days in a step-down unit, Larry found himself at Genoa Retirement Village, facing a long road to recovery. The injury had left him unable to move his extremities, walk, or even speak above a whisper due to intubation during his hospital stay. But Larry was determined to regain his independence and get back to the activities he loved, like watching TV and playing computer games.

Despite the challenges he faced, Larry remained resilient. With the support of his dedicated therapists, he made remarkable progress during his rehabilitation journey.
