Falling into Friendship at Mary Free Bed

Unlikely Friends at Mary Free Bed

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOODTV) — You can never know how your life experiences will lead you into meeting friends in unlikely places. That is the heart filled story of 21 year old Rebekah and 100 year old Marion. Both recovering from spinal surgery at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital.

Not long after the two were sharing a room, introductions were made and the curtain separating the room was tied back. Times like these can be frustrating, confusing, and may bring you down. Through sharing therapies, giving inspirational hope and encouragement shows how bonds like this can really provide the support needed, along with a wonderful and talented staff.

The scope of services offered on the Mary Free Bed campus are not found anywhere else in Michigan. Rebekah says, “That the staff was really making the time there pleasant, fun and as carefree as possible.”

This wonderful story is just one example of all the positive outcomes at Mary Free Bed. As said by Rebekah, “Marion has a hundred years’ worth of connection. You will never know who you are going to meet that might change your life forever.”
