”Iunderwentanaboveknee amputationof theright leg inSeptemberof 2017. I was referred to AgeWell by my prosthetist because I told them I neededa therapyoffice thatwouldgiveme theextra time Ineeded toget better and would provide me one-on-one time and attention. The staff at AgeWell Physical Therapy and LiveWell Occupational Therapy have been wonderful! Everyone has been so attentive and compassionate andhavemotivatedme todomore than I thought Icoulddo.Sometimes I get nervous with new challenges, but the staff made me feel at ease and gave me the confidence I needed. I was in a wheelchair and not even able to stand with others helping me and now I am able to walk with a walker with just supervision. I never thought I was going to be able to do that again! I would recommend anyone who needs therapy to go to AgeWell Physical therapy and LiveWell Occupational Therapy. They provide an extremely high quality of service and the therapy is effective. You’ll amaze yourself at what you accomplish!” - Betty K.
