How did this patient hear about Jupiter Rehabilitation? Case manager from Jupiter Medical Center
Details of experience:
Robert P.’s story begins in January 2020. Following a coronary artery bypass surgery and back surgery, he was discharged to a local Rehabilitation Center. While he was there, he suffered a stroke that affected his left side and continued his rehabilitation care. Following discharge from rehabilitation services, he was transferred to respite care, where he developed a severe UTI, a productive cough, and a fever. With the development of his new symptoms, Robert was readmitted to Jupiter Medical Center on March 2, 2020. After only four days in the hospital, he was discharged to Jupiter Rehabilitation and arrived on March 6, 2020.
When he arrived, Robert needed maximum assistance with all his daily living and mobility activities. It took a lot of hard work and perseverance from Robert, but he was able to make significant progress toward his long term goals. Upon discharge on April 1, 2020, Robert was able to perform all activities of daily living and functional mobility with supervision only, which allowed him to return to assisted living.
Mr. P. truly made the most of his time at Jupiter Rehabilitation and Healthcare. He loved going to therapy and working with Jupiter’s therapists, especially Renee. Robert shared, “Therapy always makes my day, they are so nice and make sure I am always doing okay. I also appreciate how they are always encouraging me and telling me what a great job I am doing, it helped keep me motivated especially on those rough days when I didn’t want to get out of bed.” The team at Jupiter Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center wishes Robert all the best!
