The community atmosphere at Glacier 1-ills, a
facility containing both retirement and nursing
centers, is apparent when watching the interactions
between staff and patients. The atmoshpere is
especially important for the Nursing Center, where
a diligent and dedicated staff helps the residents
recover through the use of various forms of
therapy. Although physical therapy often comes to
mind, therapies including occupational, speech,
music, and activities such as aerobics and bingo are
also crucial in the patients recovery and
maintenance.
Mrs. Mildred 1-lanke goes to physical therapy
three times per week. With the help of her

Physical Therapist Carol Hossler, Mrs.
Hanke is trying to regain the strength to
walk. Smiles and words of praise are
particularly encouraging for patients. Nancy
Kaplan, also a physical therapist, shows her
elation over her patient's success.
Speech Pathologist Charlene Zand helps
Mrs. Gray pronounce words displayed on the
flash cards. While Mrs. Gray is highly
cognizant, she has difficulty forming the
words needed to communicate after
suffering from a stroke one year ago.
Occupational Therapist Cookie Atkins,
uses various techniques to aid her patients
regain fine motor skills so they have the
ability to return to work or perform the daily
functions of living.
Aside from the three traditional methods
of therapy, activities are also an important
part of both physical and emotional
recovery. Betty Anne Gilliland teaches
aerobics to patients, as a part of the weekly
activities. Bingo is also a weekly activity
which the patients enjoy. Retirement Center
volunteer, Mr. Lauer helps Nursing Center
patient, Mr. Clark fill his three bingo cards.
Although frustrating and a struggle at
times, therapy is rewarding for both the
patient and the therapist.
