Being 800 miles away from Ruston is tough, while not knowing how my Mother was being cared for at Alpine Rehabilitation. You can imagine my relief when Mother said she is happy and doing well! I visited Alpine last week and all I asked is that they treat my Mother as they would their own. That, they have! A special Thank You to the Physical Therapy Team and Barbara Young for taking extra special care of the one I love so much! Thank You to Donna Frasier for her help and guidance at this time. A Huge Hug to You All!
