Resident Story

Ruby J’s journey at Gateway Springs Health Campus is a tale of resilience, determination, and the transformative power of rehabilitation. After a fall at her assisted living facility resulted in a fractured pelvis and a challenging surgery, Ruby’s mobility was greatly compromised. She had initially undergone rehabilitation at an inpatient facility and then sought further therapy at Gateway Springs to regain her strength and independence. For three months, she endured non-weight bearing restrictions on both legs, but her spirit remained unbroken.

Before her injury, Ruby was an active individual who enjoyed her hobbies and activities at the assisted living facility. Walking with a rollator, she participated in various pursuits and cherished moments of Bingo and crafts. However, her fall had taken a toll on her abilities, leaving her unable to even feel her legs, let alone put weight on them. Simple tasks such as dressing, toileting, and transfers became formidable challenges.

Ruby’s unwavering determination was matched by the exceptional therapists at Gateway Springs Health Campus. With their expert guidance, she embarked on a journey of healing and recovery. Her primary goal was clear: she yearned to walk again. Through hard work, dedication, and the support of her therapists, Ruby’s dream became a reality. She not only achieved her goal of walking but also regained the ability to stand and perform daily activities more independently.

Ruby’s gratitude and admiration for her therapists shine through as she describes them as “excellent and beautiful.” Their guidance not only helped her regain physical strength but also kindled her spirits. Ruby’s journey is a testament to the remarkable progress that can be achieved with the right care, dedication, and a positive attitude. At Gateway Springs Health Campus, Ruby found not just rehabilitation, but a renewed sense of freedom and joy in her regained mobility.
