Potsdam Man Regains Use of Hands, Sets His Sights on Getting Back on His Bike

 

POTSDAM – This past spring Thomas Robarge was alone in his home when he fell down. Unable to get back up or reach one of the three telephones in his home, he spent two days laying on the floor of his apartment without food and water clinging to hope that someone would find him before it was too late.

A friend of his from the apartment complex where he lives did find him and called 911, setting into motion a series of events that would see Mr. Robarge spend time at three different hospitals before coming to RiverLedge Health Care & Rehabilitation Center in Ogdensburg.... Read More

Allen McIntosh, of Waddington, recently had an appendectomy after falling ill at home.

Following his discharge from the hospital, Mr. McIntosh spent roughly two weeks at United Helpers’ RiverLedge Health Care & Rehabilitation Center in Ogdensburg.

“I knew something was wrong so I went to the hospital,” he said. “My doctor told me he does five of... Read More
