Our Family Is Crazy

Infinity Rehab is made of heroes, and this COVID-19 pandemic only makes these heroes shine even brighter. Here are just a few stories of our incredible team members serving seniors during a trying time.

Our Bayview team in Seattle shared their touching experience in helping a family witness their loved one walk:

“We’ve been struggling to get one of our residents who experienced a massive stroke to be able to focus long enough to get more than just a few forward steps in during his walking trials. Then we got his family on a Zoom call and set up the computer at the far end of a 50-foot hallway. His family was able to witness him walking the furthest he ever had without stopping. The cheers from them as he walked closer to the screen were massive.”

COVID-19 has shaken up the way we interact together. Thank you to this team for utilizing technology to allow family to see their loved one accomplish such an amazing feat.

Over in Stanwood, Washington, two co-directors of rehab at Josephine Caring Community worked together amongst the COVID-19 pandemic. While many of the staff were exposed to COVID-19 and quarantined, Marta Szabo and Shaun Kisser continued working in these difficult circumstances as they were unexposed to the virus. The two treated the entire therapy caseload for weeks across all therapy disciplines, including working with patients who tested positive for the virus. Thank you, Marta and Shaun, for your true commitment to your patients!

The COVID-19 pandemic not only brought a shortage of staff, but also a major shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE). Robin Albers, Area Rehab Director, worked alongside the University of Idaho-Moscow Mechanical Engineering Department to test 20 different prototype masks. After deciding on and 3D printing two different mask types, the university graciously donated 50 face shields to Infinity Rehab. Thank you, Robin, for helping produce and obtain much-needed PPE!

These brief insights into the heroes throughout Infinity Rehab are just a few of many. Thank you to all our Infinity Rehab staff for using your expertise, talents, and caring hearts to serve our seniors and your local communities. I am honored and humbled by all you do.
