Details of Experience:
Ernest was admitted to The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on October 5, 2020, from Yale New Haven Hospital, following a surgical procedure. Shortly after his arrival, he was warmly greeted by members of the interdisciplinary team, including the nurses, therapists, and doctor.
Mylene, the Director of Rehabilitation, and Tim, the Assistant Director of Rehabilitation met Ernest and performed their initial evaluations as well as preliminary goals. He presented with muscle weakness, needing assistance to rise from his chair; due to the fact that it took a couple of times for him to rise himself. He also needed help to balance his standing. All of this severely impacted his ability to independently perform basic activities of daily living (ADL’s). Short term goals were established to help him regain strength while nursing carefully monitored the pain levels so that he could maximize his time in therapy.
Only two weeks later, Ernest was realizing that he was progressing at a quick pace. He was so thrilled that his discharge date was coming sooner than later. As he was talking to the Director of Concierge Services, he acknowledged the great work that everyone has done for him, stating that everyone was “absolutely the best.” He specifically was thankful for the excellent rehabilitation team; as well as the nurses who “made him better.”
On October 22, only 17 days after he was admitted, Ernest was discharged home with renewed strength and independence. He walked to the care that picked up without ANY assistance. His confidence in his physical independence was at a new high!
We wish Ernest the best of luck, and we are so happy that he has done so well at The Enclave at Rye rehabilitation and Nursing Center.
