I am a new senior, who has had open heart surgery fairly recently. I am discouraged by the lack of rehabilitation, needed by those that have undergone surgery.
I’ve met with several seniors, and evidently there used to be this service, and it was well used.
Also I understand there was a cardiologist who came several times a year, from Kelowna.
He had a full roster of patients from Trail and surrounding area.
The substantial office space he was given initially, was replaced by a shabby small room. The doctor did not return, and who can blame him.
Adequate facilities for the aging and anyone who has had a surgery that requires rehabilitation is sorely needed.
