How did this patient hear about Jupiter? Hospital referral
Details of Experience:
After spending five weeks in the hospital, patient admitted to our community with the inability to walk or perform any self care tasks. Prior to patient’s hospitalization, he was a retired and very active male working around his home and yard. Within nine days of treatment, patient was able to walk over 150 feet without assistance and also able to transfer independently with his walker. Patient also made incredible gains with the ability to bathe and dress himself with little to no assistance.
Now at home, he is very close to his prior level of functioning prior to hospitalization! He is not yet quite ready for yard work, but he continually works toward that goal. He feels without his stay at Jupiter he would never have made the progress he did!
