SARASOTA COUNTY — Clara Bodager credits an active lifestyle to her speedy recovery from a broken pelvis just a few short weeks ago.

Clara, 92, has lived in Nokomis for about 30 years. Her husband, a World War II veteran, died six years ago, and her only other family here is a niece who lives in Venice. She said a wet and slippery kitchen floor caused the fall on June 10 that sent her to the HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Sarasota. Although she was diagnosed with a fractured pelvis, it did not keep her down. The HealthSouth staff encouraged her to get on her feet as soon as possible, and she was back home in two weeks.
