Kristy Young

Physical Therapist Assistant

I was born and raised in Waldron, AR. I am a proud graduate of Waldron High School, Class of 1998. I continued my education and graduated from CASC in 2002. With 22 years of dedicated experience working in Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF) and Home Health (HH), I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to my profession.

The core values that are Integrity, honesty, accountability, responsibility

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” – Proverbs 3:5

As a Physical Therapy Assistant, my primary role within the company is to provide compassionate and specialized care tailored to the unique needs of each patient. I am dedicated to assisting patients through their recovery processes with empathy and expertise, ensuring they receive the highest quality of care. My approach is patient-centered, focusing on individual therapy goals and working closely with physical therapists to implement effective treatment plans. This specialized support helps improve patients’ mobility, alleviate pain, and enhance their overall quality of life as they progress through their rehabilitation journey. One of the most challenging aspects that patients face is the loss of their independence. This can be a disheartening experience, often due to injuries or age-related health issues.

I have a particular interest and passion for treating patients undergoing rehabilitation for hip and knee replacements. These conditions are challenging yet incredibly rewarding, as they allow me to assist clients in regaining mobility and improving their quality of life.

What stands out the most about working here is the genuine appreciation and respect I receive from both my colleagues and patients. As a Physical Therapy Assistant, it’s incredibly rewarding to know that my contributions are valued and that my insights and suggestions are actively sought out and considered.
