FROM OUR PRESIDENT CONNIE COFFMAN:

Where did the summer go? I finally came home at the end of August with my trusty walker and a list of daily exercises! As I write this article it is September 18, and I am still being accompanied everywhere I go with my “sidekick” walker. One thing I learned (besides how much physical therapy goes into rehabilitation for a new hip and a fractured femur) IS THAT I AM STILL ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES BECAUSE I GOT TO GO HOME! The facility I was in was a very nice, attractive place to stay (almost like a first-class hotel as my one doctor said).

My heart goes out to all those patients who are still struggling to gain their mobility so that they will not have to use a cane, crutches, braces, and walkers to move around. Another thing I realized as the months went by was that I was losing my ability to remember things! Phone numbers, dates, names, months, etc. became meaningless and I could not get a grasp on this!! I spent every day awakened at 7:30 for my morning medications to keep the pain level controlled. Then it was breakfast, in bed of course, wash up time again in bed with assistance if I needed it.

Then came lunch in the dining room or in your room—it was your choice and someone would take you down to this beautiful dining room in your wheelchair, put on your bib, and serve your meal! Then more medication and off to Physical Therapy! I had a difficult time with physical therapy because I could only toe touch and I could not for the life of me walk on my toes!!! On the foot that was the one I had to use, I only have four toes because I had one amputated a few years ago and the rest of them were very arthritic. But my therapists solved my dilemma by letting me put my foot on top of theirs as we progressed through the exercises!!! After one to two hours of therapy, it was back to the room again to watch TV or grab a short nap. It almost seemed that my mind was in a vegetative state.
 
Then came my husband in and we always ate dinner together in my room. We talked about what was happening “in the outside world” and read the papers together. Then he would leave and I would fall asleep.

WHAT AM I WRITING ALL OF THIS FOR YOU TO READ YOU ASK YOURSELF?
If you know anyone that is confined to a nursing home, an assisted living facility, a hospital, or a rehab center, PLEASE TAKE A FEW HOURS OUT OF YOUR WEEK AND VISIT THEM! My family faithfully did that and it was a godsend. When I came home, it did not take long before I began to feel mentally alert and challenged again. So, do not be someone who puts off a visit to a sick friend or relative. You may be doing more good than you realize. BRING IN THE OUTSIDE WORLD TO THEM!

A Note From Chris:

We have a busy holiday season coming up, but don’t forget to take time to enjoy the cool, crisp fall season!

Our September senior trip to South Dakota was a big success! Check out our group picture in this month’s newsletter.
 
Also, there is an important Senior Services Levy on the November ballot. Please make sure that you educate yourself on this very important issue which effects all of us.
