When Faye Johnson fell and fractured her femur and part of her hip, her phone wasn’t near her in her home. She struggled to use her fingers to reach her husband’s cane, and eventually, a neighbor heard her using it to bang on a door.
After that harrowing experience, Johnson, 85, underwent 18 days of rehabilitation at a health-care provider and one more month of rehab at the Someren Glen retirement community in Centennial, where she began living in winter 2016.
“Everybody that took care of me was nice to me,” said Johnson, who lived in Centennial before coming to Someren Glen. When “they see me, they give me a hug, and I can hardly wait to give them a hug. They’re the best.”
“It’s like heaven — it’s gorgeous,” Johnson said. If “you had to go and be in rehab, this would be the place I suggest.”
