Central Coast Respite Care Grand Opening
"I've always had a problem with infections. In fact my knee replacement was postponed because of that. Being able to come here (Central Coast Respite Center) after my surgery let's me recover in a clean, safe place so I can rest, have physical therapy and not be afraid of getting another infection."
