Dominique, Spouse of a Stroke Patient
I would like to let you know that my husband and I were very pleased with all of the therapists and everyone at HealthSouth while he was both an inpatient and outpatient at your hospital in Albuquerque.
I want to specifically mention the physical and occupational therapists who were always very professional, knowledgeable and innovative in their approach to therapy and recovery. The therapists always had a great attitude and a good sense of humor. While my husband worked hard at his own recovery, the therapists there helped him to overcome some of his own fears and never let him give up. They made rehab fun even when the workouts were difficult.
Over time, I noticed that my husband actually looked forward to the days he had physical therapy because he always tried hard and learned new things. We also appreciate all the other therapists, nurses and others who helped my husband. We could not have gotten this far without all of their encouragement and professional training.
We are still practicing all the PT, OT and speech and other things we learned while we were there. God bless you all for helping people like my husband learn techniques that make our lives so much better by being able to get through difficult circumstances, one day at a time.
