How did this patient hear about Jupiter Rehabilitation? Her daughter’s coworker referred them to us, her coworker’s mother had stayed with us and had a wonderful experience.

Details of experience:

Lindsey Bamberg is a 76-year-old female who was admitted to Jupiter Rehab on May 26, 2021, from Boca Raton Regional Hospital. She was admitted to the hospital on May 23 with complaints of left calf pain and swelling, an MRI of her leg showed soft tissue swelling, and she was diagnosed with partial tearing of her left calf muscle. She was advised to go to a rehab facility to help with the rehab. Mrs. Bamberg and her daughter chose Jupiter Rehab after a referral from a coworker and the fact that her daughter lives close by. When she was first admitted, she required minimal assistance for her mobility and self-care. After weeks of physical and occupational therapy, Mrs. Bamberg performed all her mobility at supervision level, walking about 100-150 feet using a rolling walker and performing all self-care tasks independently. She was safely discharged to her home.

If you ever had a down day, Lindsey Bamberg’s smiling face could make all your worries disappear with just a smile. Her positive attitude and appreciation for her care radiated throughout the building. There wasn’t a staff member or fellow resident that she didn’t make feel special. People were drawn to her. After getting to know her better, I learned that she had been a CNA for years! No wonder she was so good with people!

You could tell that Mrs. Bamberg felt well taken care of…not only did she have high praise for her physical and occupational therapists, she also quite enjoyed our Activities Department. “The dining room sessions were awesome, and they kept morale high!” and she felt that our kitchen was top-notch, “The food is delicious and quite varied in items, the kitchen personnel is so accommodating when I make special requests.”

Although hesitant to leave our facility, when she is discharged, Mrs. Bamberg is excited to get home and continue focusing on her physical therapy, sleeping through the night without any interruptions, and just getting back to her beloved hobbies, travel socializing/entertaining family and friends.

Lindsey Bamberg is a model patient, but what we will miss about her most is her warm smile and glowing personality, and we wish her good luck returning home.
