Joan has been using the support of Recope for over 20 years. After a fall left her in a wheelchair, she started in the pool with the assistance of a volunteer and then later switched to the land class. She credits Recope with getting her out of her wheelchair and then helping maintain her ability to walk. Another fall 3 years ago left her with a broken back and pelvis, she came back to Recope as soon as she was discharged from the hospital. "They’re putting me back together. I believe in it. It’s social and I have good friends here”, shares Joan.
