Details of experience:
David came to Jupiter Rehabilitation and Healing Center on May 7, 2019 from Jupiter Medical Center. He was suffering from hip pain and could no longer ambulate. Until his hospitalization, his wife was his sole caretaker and it was unclear if she would be able to continue to care for him. David was not sure if he would ever return home.
When David arrived at the community, he was at maximum assistance for transfers and Activities of Daily Living (ADL). For bed mobility, David was at minimum assistance. Unfortunately, David was not able to begin therapy until he was able to receive knee replacement surgery in early December. Once his surgery was completed, David began therapy. When he was ready to return home, he had progressed quite well. David was able to complete his ADLs with minimum assistance and was able to ambulate independently with a rolling walker.
Throughout the course of his stay, David and our staff never gave up. He enjoyed his stay and loved our staff. He shared he was so grateful to them, especially our therapy staff who never inspired him daily and helped him walk again. The team is happy to share that David has been doing well since going home!
