Three years ago, 79-year-old Sanford S. Feller, the energetic president
of a manufacturing firm, experienced a bout of diverticulitis so severe
he was unable to walk or talk. He wound up being hospitalized for six
months at the Southeast Georgia Health System Camden Campus with low blood
pressure and congestive heart failure.
Following his discharge, Sanford began his remarkable comeback at the Southeast
Georgia Health System Senior Care Center in St. Marys. "They had
everything I needed for my rehabilitation—physical therapy, speech
therapy and occupational therapy," he says. "I attribute my
recovery and current good condition to the Senior Care Center."
Sanford was able to return home after three and a half months and is back
to working every day. He believes connecting with other people and having
some fun can help with recovery. "At the Senior Care Center, you're
made to feel like it's your home," he says.
