LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION FOR LANCE VAN ARSDELL
"My husband Dorsey McDaniel had a cerebral hemorrhage on the 2nd on June. While the Doctors did not expect him to live, he nevertheless did. On June 20th he was readmitted, had a pacemaker implant. Came home from the hospital the 2nd of July, was home a few days, had a stroke, and was admitted to a hospice in-house facility. He was discharged from there 6 days later.
This was the point that Lance entered our lives, he came to the nursing facility where I had admitted Mr. McDaniel. The Doctors told me he was too weak to have [qualify for] physical therapy so we were turned down. I found Lance, and he immediately came and started Mr. McDaniel's therapy. My husband was so weak he could not turn over in bed, sit up, nor stand. Within a few days Lance had him sitting on the edge of the bed, in a chair, and walking.
Lance's knowledge of the type of therapy that my husband needed extended to numerous areas. Teaching my husband how to get up from a chair, and lowering himself without just falling into the chair. How to get up from the floor if he fell, working with weights. He taught him many different exercises to strengthen himself. Every area that was needed for Mr. McDaniel's recovery Lance provided.
We believe his greatest quality is his gentle, kind, and understanding personality. I would and have recommended Lance for whatever physical therapy need anyone would have for recovery to whatever point that physically handicapped person can recover.
He rates a 100% from us for his outstanding qualities.

Q: What about those tennis balls?
A: We really did go out in his driveway at the under-construction Sunland Springs near Crismon and Baseline and smack some balls across the street. Only broke two windows!.....No really. No one was even building across the street at the time. Earlier in his rehab we took a golf cart ride to the putting green. With the ever cautious Lance initially stabilizing his hips we did some putting. It was absolutely fun to watch Dorsey's progress.
