Last night, Marty was moved from UMass to Fairlawn Rehab Center (189 May St.) in Worcester. He will now begin 3-5 hour days of occupational, physical and speech therapy. Already this AM, they had him climbing stairs! And here he is—all dressed and raring to go!
Just like he was at UMass, he is in great spirits and telling ever-so-many jokes! He’s got a great appetite and is just so eager to do as much therapy as they will throw his way! Everyone who is assigned to him comment on his wonderful attitude and wish that all patients were like him!
Marty is in Room 111 and visiting hours are 8-8. There is a small cafeteria there which is open over the breakfast, lunch and supper hours. The staff all appear to be excellent and they encourage visitors to stay during therapy sessions.
May Street is off Park Ave in Worcester. Take 190 to Exit 1-Goldstar Blvd. Goldstar Blvd merges into Park Ave. Follow Park Ave. past Institute Park and WPI (on your left) until you reach Price Chopper on the left. Take a right onto Highland St. and follow to a small rotary. Go 3/4 around the rotary onto June St. At the 2nd traffic light, turn left onto May St. Fairlawn is on the right. (Alternatively, you can stay on Park Ave—past Highland) until you come to a large CVS on your right and turn right onto May St. Fairlawn will then be about 1/2-1 mile on your left)
Martin and Ingrid send their love and thanks to all and are so grateful for all the love, prayers, support, calls, cards, emails, etc. They may not be able to return all your calls, emails right now but Ingrid wants you to know that she is making sure Marty sees them all!
