Therapy Dog Helps Rebecca Exercise

The photos and text for this blog post were provided via email by Chantelle, the Site Supervisor at the Bob and Judy Charles SmartHome in Boulder, Colorado.

Here are pictures of Rebecca as she walked the therapy dog Raven around the house with her physical therapist Shannon. Rebecca has been working with Shannon for two months now. Shannon reports Rebecca is getting stronger and able to exercise longer without getting as tired.

Two months ago, Rebecca was assessed by her physical therapist and it was concluded that she was not safe to walk without her walker at that time. Since then, she has been working on balance strength and the goal is for her to walk with out adaptive equipment for 500 feet.
