How did this patient hear about The Chateau at Brooklyn Rehabilitation & Nursing Center? Family did online research.
Ms. Mary Peters began her journey at The Chateau at Brooklyn Rehabilitation Center in mid-November 2018. Prior to arriving to The Chateau, she spent a few days in the hospital after going to her doctor and seeking consult. The doctor shared with Ms. Peters that additional tests are to be run in efforts of properly diagnosing her lower extremities.
When she arrived at the emergency room, she was informed that she had developed gangrene on her toes and many would have to be amputated. Although she was very upset about the decision, she made up her mind that this would not set her back and she would continue to be the woman that she was prior to the surgery!
After recovering for a few days, she was soon to be discharged from the hospital and would be in need of rehabilitation before returning home. When doing some research online, her daughter read about The Chateau and decided that it would be a perfect place for her mother to rehabilitate, both physically and mentally.
Upon arriving at The Chateau, Mary was very happy to see how lovely the building looked and how pleasant the environment was. Mary was so happy to enter a quiet, peaceful place. She knew that The Chateau was the best place for her to rejuvenate.
As always, our staff were very kind and welcoming to Mary, and explained her the process that they would use to ensure that she would achieve her maximum rehabilitation outcome.
Beginning on day one, she was working with her therapists to get her balance back. Mary had to adapt to walking with her missing toes. Although it was challenging at first, she continued to work diligently. Mary was seeing improvement and was very optimistic about reaching her goals. After four weeks of rehabilitation, Mary gained the confidence to plan her discharge. She was grateful to get the help of the social workers who made sure everything was set up for a safe discharge home!
Prior to leaving The Chateau, Mary sat with the staff to express her appreciation for all that was done for her while residing here. Everything including the rehabilitation, nursing, food, and cleanliness exceeded her expectations and she was happy to be going home sooner than she originally expected. We at The Chateau were happy to get Mary back on her feet again and wish her nothing but the best in the new year ahead!
