I had a terrible foot infection, which, combined with my chronic lower back pain, made me immobile. My landlord came to my apartment and discovered how bad off I was. As I had been in the Navy, the Albany Stratton VA Medical Center took the initiative, and they knew exactly where I should go: Delmar Center.
The wound care was immediate—and showed immediate results, my foot infection beginning to heal right away. At the same time, the physical and occupational therapists put together a plan to improve my back. The Delmar Center team has been dramatically successful in both healing and strengthening me.
But they haven’t stopped there. I don’t want to lose my independence, and the social workers have arranged for me to transfer to the Albany Center for Independent Living, which is right next door. Thanks to Delmar Center, I’m ready to make new friends in my new home!
