Success Story: Mrs. Christine Bond

March 25, 2021

We’re so glad to see residents achieve their goals! Christine was admitted to our community in January with eight compression fractures. She was strong, but due to the severity of pain in her back, she was unable to sit up for no longer than fifteen minutes at a time. However, she was motivated to do as much as she physically could.

Christine’s motivation was fueled by the desire to be able to attend her granddaughter’s wedding in June. Christine did her therapy with physical therapist Allyson Thornsberry every day no matter what, and even exercised on her own to get stronger!

After two months, she is now able to sit up almost all day, playing games and communicating with family on her iPad. She can walk again unassisted and even climb stairs. Christine is ready to return home and see her dog “Jelly Bean” and when June rolls around perhaps she will dance at her granddaughter’s wedding! We spoke with Christine to say our goodbyes and best wishes, and she had this to say:

” If for some reason, (she said with a smile) I should have to be put in another Nursing Home, I want to come here! I love you all, and I’m so grateful to my Therapy girl Allyson for all she done for me….. but I have to give the full credit to the man above.”

We sure will miss you, Christina!

COVID-19 Vaccine Q & A: Can a COVID-19 vaccine make me sick with COVID-19?

January 30, 2021

No. None of the authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines or COVID-19 vaccines currently in development in the United States contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. This means that a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19.

There are several different types of vaccines in development. All of them teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. Sometimes this process can cause symptoms, such as fever. These symptoms are normal and are a sign that the body is building protection against the virus that causes COVID-19. Learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work.

It typically takes a few weeks for the body to build immunity (protection against the virus that causes COVID-19) after vaccination. That means it’s possible a person could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and still get sick. This is because the vaccine has not had enough time to provide protection.

Is the COVID Vaccine Safe?

January 23, 2021

(Info from the CDC –

All the COVID-19 vaccines being used have gone through rigorous studies to ensure they are as safe as possible. Systems that allow CDC to watch for safety issues are in place across the entire country.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Emergency Use Authorizations for COVID-19 vaccines that have been shown to meet rigorous safety criteria and be effective as determined by data from the manufacturers and findings from large clinical trials. Watch a video describing the emergency use authorization. Clinical trials for all vaccines must first show they meet rigorous criteria for safety and effectiveness before any vaccine, including COVID-19 vaccines, can be authorized or approved for use. The known and potential benefits of a COVID-19 vaccine must outweigh the known and potential risks of the vaccine.
