Testimonials About The Continental in Austin
I became aware of the exercise program from a few friends of mine living at The Continental. While I was interested in the program, had two issues standing in my way: I was not a resident at The Continental and my health was not excellent. Being in my late 80’s, I have had issues falling, as well as other health problems, and I was weary of my strength in an exercise program. I contacted my doctor who reiterated that exercise would only benefit my overall health, and after this, I asked the activity director if I could participate without being a resident. To my surprise, I was given the OK to join!
Prior to the program, I was not only using a walker, but also had difficulty dressing, especially putting on my socks or tying my shoes. I was unable to cross my leg over my knee.
I have been thrilled with the results of the Continentals’ exercise program. Within three months of dedication, I began using a cane and could dress myself from head to toe. After six months, I was able to move my lower legs up to my knees and exercise my hips.
I am so thankful for the advancement in my health and for the efforts of everyone involved in the exercise program at The Continental.
