Geropsychiatric Unit

Dear JoAnn: I want to personally thank you, and Kim, and the entire qualified staff at Masconomet Healthcare for your incredible and crucial part in my successful rehabilitation. As you know, when I arrived at Masconomet last Spring, I was in pretty bad shape and was unable to walk. I was wheelchair bound having suffered extensive injuries from an automobile accident last January. The worst of the damage was having suffered two broken legs, both upper and lower legs were broken. I now have steel plates in both of my legs, from my hips to my knees and from my knees down to my ankles. I credit my fast moving recuperation and my ability to walk again to the people at Masconomet, particularly to Bill Carey. Under Bill’s care and guidance and his constant pushing me to limits that I didn’t think possible, along with his continued positive motivation, I began to actually take my first steps again a lot sooner than I thought possible. Today, I am back working, driving a new car, and enjoying life to its fullest. This would not be possible without your help and the help and kindness of all of the folks at Masconomet. I will be forever grateful to you all. Thanks a million, Jim S.
