Staff members from Millennium Therapy welcomed visitors to an open house Sunday afternoon at their offices at the Rowley Masonic Community in Perry.
Visitors enjoyed light refreshments while touring the facilities. Millennium Therapy has been practicing for about one year at the Rowley Masonic Community in Perry, according to the company’s director, Angela Abbas of Des Moines.
“We’ve been here, but this gives us a chance to really make it official and to greet the community,” Abbas said.
She said Millennium Therapy treats Rowley residents and also offers “outpatient services to folks from the community.” Services include rehabilitation for stroke victims, therapy for knee or hip replacement patients or for anyone experiencing “general deconditioning” after an illness, Abbas said.
Millennium Therapy opened in 1999 — hence the name — and now has 65 contracts across Iowa as well as six company-owned clinics. They are headquartered in Des Moines.
Joining Abbas at the open house festivities were Physical Therapist Andrea Kroese, Speech Pathologist Lori Hofmeyer and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant Regina Angelo.
Staff members of the Rowley Masonic Community also used Sunday’s open house as an opportunity for an impromptu retirement party for longtime staffers Pat and Kenny Elsberry. Pat has worked at the Masonic home for 28 years and Kenny for 23.
Their retirement plans are still forming, Kenny said, “but we like the warmer weather in the south.”
