Carolyn Terrell’s Story

“Before my car accident and other health problems (diabetes, heart, stroke, depression), I was a real estate broker and owned a realty company for 11 years. I had a condo and served on the condo board. As my health declined, I realized I couldn’t count only on family and friends for the help I needed. I lived at two other nursing homes before coming to Drake. I do some type of therapy every day…physical, recreational, aqua therapy. The therapists have never let me down, not a single one of them. I feel back in the game. Recreational therapy (especially ceramics) gave me back my life. My goal now is to be able to dance freely…that’s living! I’m happy here at Drake.”
