People of Full Life: Patti Burklin

Patti Burklin, Participant of Full Life Care Adult Day Health

I come here (to adult day health) because I enjoy it. I need to get stronger, and hopefully will get my balance back so I can walk again. I learn how to fall. I got instructions on how to fall better, so I don’t get hurt.

I come here to exercise and for the socialization. I see friends and get out of the house.

I’ve been coming here for many years. When I’m not here, I do beadwork. Beads helped me quit smoking. Before I had nothing to do. I’d sit in the house, get no exercise. When I’m in my wheelchair, I come here. They help me walk.
