“My diabetes had worsened, and the doctors said I had to have my leg amputated. After the surgery, I was still in bad health, and I had to decide where to go to recover. My family did some research, and we decided on Topeka Center. It turned out to be a great choice.
What I love about the place is, not only did they nurse me back to health and create a personalized rehab plan for me, they also taught me a lot. It was a true learning experience as they taught me how to live—and live well—on one leg.
I am definitely stronger and healthier now than when I went into the hospital. The team at Topeka Center really cared for and about me. One of the therapists always made me coffee. Sometimes it’s the small things that make a big difference.”
