Recovery at Home-After Hip Surgery

Sue Speers, 88, had experienced joint replacement surgery before. But this time, she knew she was going home alone. Both she and her family were nervous and Sue recognized that she would need to rely on her home health providers. There were six in all – nurses, home health aides and physical therapists.

She says now she will “shout from the rooftops” that Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice provided excellent service and she credits us with her full and speedy recovery. In fact, Sue was strong enough to attend the Sandwich Fair, where she ran into her home health aide and they had a good time catching up.

Sue has a “particular fondness” for her physical therapist who not only helped with her recovery but was that warm and caring professional who always had a reassuring word to say.  She says it in her own words (see below). Thank you, Sue, for writing in and letting us know about your positive experience. You really made us smile.
