On Nov. 8, 2017, Life Care Center of Wilbraham, Massachusetts, invited former rehab patients back to the facility for a rehab reunion.
More than 15 patients came back to share their progress at home and visit with their therapists and the other associates they had befriended while at the facility. Associates served apple-themed autumn treats, including apple fritters, apple crisp and apple cider.
The rehab graduates were also entered into a drawing for an autumn-themed basket, and everyone took home apple pies and a mug.
“It was so wonderful and exciting being able to reunite with our patients,” said Wendy Sandoval, assistant director of rehab. “Seeing their successful outcomes makes our job as therapists incredibly rewarding.”
Life Care Center of Wilbraham plans to make the rehab reunion an annual event.
