To the staff at Therapy Unlimited,
Thank you so much for the excellent care you provided during my recovery with a broken knee and wrist. I really appreciated your expertise in developing the therapy regime to quickly regain my strength and mobility. The pool was a true highlight - it is just a gorgeous facility and water therapy was a key component of my recovery. And of course you all know how much I enjoyed the paraffin (wink!).
But truly, where Therapy Unlimited really shines is your staff. Every single one of you are so kind and pleasant - just genuinely nice people. That makes a difference - it was clear to me that everyone really cared about my recovery. I always looked forward to seeing your smiling faces (well, I could tell you were smiling under your masks!) and chatting with all of you.
Hopefully I won't need your services again for many years to come, but if I do, I would not hesitate to come back to your fantastic facility and staff!If I can provide a reference beyond this letter at some point - please don't hesitate to reach out.

MINIMIZING YOUR RISK OF FALLS
How Big Is the Problem?
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for Injury Prevention and Control reports:
- More than one-third (1/3) of adults 65 and older fall each year in the United States;
- Falls are the leading cause of injury deaths for older adults;
- In 2003, about 1.8 million people 65 and older were treated in emergency departments for nonfatal falls, and about 460,000 of these patients were hospitalized;
- The rates of fall-related deaths among older adults rose significantly over the past decade;
- Many individuals who fall develop a fear of falling. That may cause them to limit activity, leading to reduced mobility and physical fitness and increasing their risk for additional falls; and
- In 2000, direct medical costs totaled $179 million for fatal falls and $19 billion for nonfatal fall injuries.
