Finding Rehab Care after an Accident

When Life Enrichment Director Yvonne Miller’s mother required extensive rehabilitation services after a serious car accident, she knew Otterbein St. Marys would provide exceptional care.

“This is a place where people live. They want to get better. So, I did bring her here and she did receive therapy — and they kept her in such high spirits,” said Yvonne.

Yvonne’s mother thrived in the supportive environment and felt encouraged by residents and partners. She was able to return home after her therapy services ended, and Yvonne was grateful that her mother’s experience was a positive one.

His father asked about inquiring at Otterbein for him and Bruce’s mother. Knowing his mom needed special care, Bruce trusted that Otterbein could meet both of their needs and allow them to remain close to each other on the same campus
