Joy Keasey

A femoral surgery after suffering an embolism in her leg led Joy Keasey to require rehabilitation.


Keasey was very weak when she arrived at Life Care Center of Banner Elk, North Carolina, on March 14, 2019. She needed moderate assistance with bed mobility, bathing and dressing, as well as some assistance with walking, grooming, medication management, standing balance and transfers.


“Physical therapy helped me with my walking and balance,” Keasey said. “Occupational therapy helped me with my dressing. Life Care Center of Banner Elk is well managed, and they care for each and every patient and their special needs.”


Keasey was able to move into an assisted living apartment on June 20. She was independent in her activities of daily living and most of her mobility.
