You are never too old to benefit from physical therapy. Brunswick resident
Mallye Taylor, who celebrated her 100th birthday on September 3, knows
this. She is a patient at Southeast Georgia Health System Outpatient Rehabilitation
Services located at Summit Professional Plaza.
Taylor, who grew up on St. Simons Island, has done a lot during her life
including owning a restaurant on East Beach during the 1940s, investing
and managing real estate, and coordinating dinner parties for Queen Elizabeth
and Nelson Rockefeller when he was governor of New York. "I’ve
had a pretty busy life," she says.
Taylor, who now lives with her son and daughter-in-law, participates in
therapy sessions twice weekly to help her regain strength after she fractured
her hip. "People can’t believe I take therapy, but I am a fighter
and I don’t give up easy. I keep doing what they tell me to do and
anything else I know to do that will help me. I can walk pretty well now."
She adds that she has always received good care from Southeast Georgia
Health System. "They have been really good to me. They have always
treated me well."
Wendy Alberson, P.T., manager, Adult Outpatient Rehabilitation Services,
says that Health System team members always enjoy their appointments with
Taylor, "She is full of energy and super sweet."
