Ray


"Ray's positive outlook is an inspiration
to other patients; he's so focused on returning
to the golf course with his buddies.
If you've got that attitude, the rest can fall into place."
- Araceli Landaburu, Physiotherapist

Meet Ray, facilities manager and stroke survivor

Ray manages recreational facilities where people can have fun and stay active. So, when a stroke left him partially paralyzed, Ray was devastated. "I thought, I'm only 63 and I'll never walk again. How am I going to live the rest of my life?"

At St. John's Rehab we help people rebuild their lives. Our therapists developed a customized recovery plan for Ray, and step by step, day by day, helped him progress from a bed to a wheelchair, from sitting to standing and, eventually, from standing to walking.

Today, Ray can walk and has returned to work; he has regained his mobility and his independence. Now he and his team are focused on something almost as important - helping him get back on the golf course.

St. John's Rehab supports people recovering from traumatic illness or injury by providing care, services and expertise they can't find anywhere else. We are committed to being at the forefront of specialized rehabilitation care.
