Jill Graybill's Recovery Story

She spent her life teaching others to dance … LifeWorks helped her get back on the dance floor and moving to the music.

I came to the Center after an automobile accident. I was almost completely immobilized with multiple fractures including a broken pelvis, broken collarbone, broken ribs, and concussion. I was at the hospital for five days, at which time I had to choose whether to go to a rehabilitation center or to go back home with daily physical therapy. I knew how difficult it would be to focus on my recovery at home, so I chose a LifeWorks Rehab Center.

I had heard great things about it, and from the very beginning I knew I'd made the right decision. When I arrived, I could barely move - couldn't even raise myself out of bed - and with the LifeWorks therapy I was able to walk again and be back home in just five weeks.

My therapist at was incredible - she knew that I had been a professional dance instructor for 35 years, and took the extra step of integrating dance moves into my daily therapy. The personalized attention and creative, caring approach here helped keep me motivated and focused so that I could get back home as quickly as possible.

 

"They say laughter is the best medicine, and the staff and other patients helped keep me motivated, cheerful, and laughing every day."
