Success Stories

Hummingbird Therapeutic Activity Program Success Stories from clients, family members, and professionals

My client was a retired, accomplished MD with a brilliant mind. She was stuck in a small area, with nothing much to do. She had a real breakthrough by working with her Hummingbird Therapeutic Activity Specialist. She helped her realize she wasn’t “stuck” where she was. She could do something. She really looks forward to her sessions and rises to the occasion.

I am over-the-top thrilled with these reports and signs of progress! As I so vehemently defended her right to a better life to her doctors in early December when they really wanted to write her off. She is reacting exactly as I hoped she would, given the encouragement she needed!!! I literally could do a dance!!!!!

I’m really happy with the activity specialist’s help!! We have my parents over for dinner on Thursday nights and, last night, we had my Mom help with some basic food preparation, which I could tell she enjoyed. We got the idea from these reports on the Activity Specialist sessions and what she is doing with my Mom. I really look forward to reading these summaries each week!

It appears that you two have hit a home run! The client herself said, “Thank you for the energy you bring to me every week—we have fun together!”

It’s not just activities. It is so much more than that. It’s about engagement and smiles and spreading joy.

You taught me how to enjoy life again—thank you.
