Details of Experience:

Nursing:

Darlene I. arrived at Beeghly Oaks with a serious wound that caused her to have much pain and physical debilitation. Despite this, Darlene was always pleasant to her caregivers and a joy to be around. She followed doctor’s orders and worked to improve daily. By the time she discharged she was a true Beeghly success story. She had befriended residents and staff alike with her winning smile and cheerful attitude.

Holly Seabolt, D.O.N.

Therapy:

DEdith arrived with severe balance and coordination deficits on February 16,2016 which were compounded by the treatments she was receiving from the Hope Center. Edith was able to return home with family support after 8 weeks of physical and occupational therapy. She left our facility able to walk 300 feet without an assistive device and ascend/descend 10 steps with 1 rail independently.
Edith also had a right wrist fracture when she arrived to us here at Beeghly Oaks. This limited her ability even further as well as causing deficits with dressing and bathing herself. She was able to improve functional use and range of motion with that wrist and hand after her cast came off with the help of occupational therapy treatment. Edith was a pleasure to work with and very eager and willing to regain her abilities. We wish her well.

Shannon Blissenbach, Dir. Of Therapy

Concierge:

Edith was a Gem; always happy and smiling. It was my joy to allowing us meet her and my pleasure to get to visit with her. Thank you Edith for allowing us to serve you.
