James Monroe joined the Signature HealthCARE of Monteagle community after suffering a stroke. Mr. Monroe participated in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy on his road to recovery. Mr. Monroe has touched our hearts and it has been a blessing to serve him.In his own words, James shares his story:

“When I came here, I was weak. I was sick for so long. I wasn’t awake enough to know it, but I kept getting pneumonia and didn’t think I would make it. When I got here, I couldn’t talk or walk or barely breathe. I couldn’t even sit up. Now I’m walking on my own and doing everything by myself… just about. Felicia, David, and Jessica helped me. Ya’ll are like God to me. I’m sitting here today and I didn’t think I would be. When I first started therapy, I wasn’t sure it would help. But the more I did, the more I saw a big change. I am most proud that I can eat and drink again, and I am no longer in a wheelchair. I’m looking forward to living a good life.”

While reflecting on his time at Signature HealthCARE of Monteagle, Mr. Monroe says, “Ya’ll are miracle workers and I’d tell anyone that. I would recommend this place to anyone. I like being here, and I’m going to miss ya’ll when I leave.”
