Gloria's Story | Rumford Swing Bed Rehabilitation Program



my name is Gloria Freddie that my name is David Britton and we're from Brantford made an August 13th of last year I had a stroke when Gloria had the stroke she was in the hospital taking PT for an operation she was gonna have on her knee during the PT she had a stroke a massive stroke and they said that she would not have lived had she not been in very very close to the hospital because she couldn't breathe on her own she spent eight days after that in the hospital in Portland because she had various things wrong I had to be corrected before she could go to an intensive rehab thankfully after that she came to the roof in hospital but not before I had gone to five or six nursing homes looking for one that I thought would be good for her I didn't find any that were good for her right I was very disappointed in what was available I think on the sixth nursing home that I went to I sat out in the parking lot quietly I says I just can't send my wife to one of these places is none of them what I want I do about the spring program itself but I had no idea they did rehab so my research that as much as we could it came up I said this can't be true or less I mean this is like heaven and it it's just not gonna happen that way but it did happen that way I mean everything at the ruffed hospital just fit exactly what we needed exactly what we if everything was right there at your fingertips first of all they thought I was gonna be there maybe less than a week but I was there for one month and I was trained it very good when she first came to the hospital there she was not she could not eat on her own she could not drink on her own his only better oh I'm not too long about rested him what that she could talk she couldn't talk for the first 20 or 25 days I spend a lot of time and nothing and you know got to know everyone and that's like one big happy family everybody gets along and I got good service very good service we can't say enough good about the hospital liberals and we just cannot say this program was just exactly what we needed is exactly when we needed it and they they were just so great to us she's got to the point now that she's even sassy and that's a role self
