I was tired all the time, with muscle spasms and difficulty moving. I have multiple sclerosis, diabetes and problems with my heart. And then I got COVID-19. I was anxious and depressed. It felt like I was going downhill…until I was admitted to Topeka Center.
The team there was warm and welcoming. The medical staff and therapy team put together a plan designed to help me get around on my own again. Within a few weeks I was feeling the difference—stronger and healthier. But it wasn’t just a physical improvement. They got me involved in activities, and I was feeling better emotionally, as well.
After six weeks, I was ready to return to my apartment in an Independent Living facility, and the social workers at Topeka Center helped me with the transition. The entire team worked together to get me home and back to my life!
