A fall caused Dorothy Elliott to have to move in with her daughter. But through the outpatient therapy at California Care Center, Elliott is regaining her independence.

"She had fallen and came in here for physical therapy to strengthen her walking and balance," Heather Wolfe, occupational therapist at California Care Center, said. "She has also participated in occupational therapy to help her go home again safely doing cooking and cleaning home improvement type tasks."
