I could not walk or write and could not remember many things. I was severely depressed. Buena Vista saved my life! Scott E. was a God send as my therapist. He would joke with me, get me laughing so the pain of my having to learn how to walk and write again was muted. He would wave at me while I was struggling with trying to learn how to write again. He was the kindest man I have ever met, and so smart! Everyone there was so kind and thoughtful. I was so happy to be able to fail at walking or writing without anyone being critical or commenting. Buena Vista is a wonderful facility. I can now walk and write without help thanks to Buena Vista. I say ‘Thank you for giving me a new life to go with my new heart!'”

“I was about ready to cash it all in! I had suffered three strokes, a heart attack, and open heart surgery. I could not walk or write. I had lost all hope. I was down to 99 pounds and could not eat. However, when I got to Buena Vista Care Center, Scott E., my therapist, got me laughing for the first time in over five months. He was so kind and caring! He made me want to be able to walk and write. He would wave at me while I struggled to learn how to write again! His smile was electric! He spoke softly and carried a big stick! His personality was so warm, thoughtful, and intelligent. When I succeeded in being able to take a few steps on my own, he said,’ Way to go,’ and cracked me up so that I wanted to walk in order to get his positive response. I would not have been able to recover without Buena Vista’s excellent therapy and positive atmosphere. I owe them and Scott my life! Thank you so much!”
