“I was at St. Anthony’s recovering from a stroke and my Sooner Care was about to expire. A Valir PACE representative came and talked to me about the benefits of the program. I didn’t trust people after friends took advantage of me during the beginning of my recovery. I was not sure how life could go on. ValirPACE literally saved my life. It is why I love this place. Within the first nine days of attending PACE, I was able to find hope in life, made friends with other participants, and continued recovering from my stroke. PACE, to me, stands for Professional And Caring Employees/Environment. It is a good place and the employees can’t fake how nice they are. I hope this place never goes away. I know in some aspects PACE will be a part of me for the rest of my life.”

“Dear Valir Team:
Just a note to thank you and all involved in making our trip to the art festival possible. For the couple of hours we were there I have not felt so invigorated, young and happy in years. There was no pain, no ailments, no worries, just the most wonderful happiness in many, many years. I know this had to take a lot of planning for everyone. The staff and drivers were great and everyone pulled together to make our trip so special. Thank you again I had the time of my life. I love Valir PACE and I am so glad to be here! Love you Guys”

"When I was stopped over and in intense pain and could barely life my arms…so weak I couldn’t open a water bottle – Shamika took me from a feeling of useless depression to a spirit of “I can” with encouragement to start slow, gradually and steadily increase exercises and difficulty of exercises. Today I am lifting weights and riding the elliptical bike. Thank you for your patience and well thought out plans for me Shamika.
The Tai Chi classes have helped me many ways. It provides emotional stress release and helps my anxiety levels remain low. It improves my balance. I have not fallen since taking Tai Chi classes. My breathing, strength and heart rate have improved. My wellbeing - physical, emotional, and spiritual - has improved largely due to the diligence of our PT staff. I thank you (Shelby and Amanda) for giving me my life back."
