How did this patient hear about Beeghly Oaks Center? Mr Chance was here in June of 2011

Details of Experience:

Nursing:

Mr. Chance was admitted to Beeghly Oaks in May 2016. Mr. Chance was alert and oriented. He was very pleasant and social with all staff and residents. He was compliant with all care, and we wish him well.

Lisa Davis, A.D.O.N.

Therapy:

Upon arrival to Beeghly Oaks Rehabilitation and Healing Center, Mr. Chance had extreme difficulty completing every day tasks due to experiencing a cerebellar stroke. He demonstrated loss of balance with all standing activities and his strength was weak.
After 2 short months of intense skilled rehabilitation, Mr. Chance regained his ability to perform self care, transfers, and gait activities to return home exceeding his expectations. He continues to come to Beeghly Oaks for out- patient rehabilitation.

Shannon Blissenbach, Director of Rehabilitation

Activities:

Mr. Chance stayed focused on his therapy and going home, and although he did not integrate within the Beeghly Oaks community as a participant in the recreational programs, he became very known just by being here. His great smile, determination and his historic social personality shined through any challenge he faced and to all of Beeghly, we experienced an inspiration as he displayed a great amount of driving command reaching each of his therapy goals. The recreation department offered him opportunity to become involved and throughout the times of offering him the choices for involvement the recreation department connected with his charming personality and his interests he was pursuing in his room. Phil loves his family and friends who visited with him daily.

Maureen McCarty, Recreational Therapy Director

Dietary:

Mr. Chance was a very nice man who never complained. It was my pleasure preparing meals for him.

Jeanette Loggins, Food Service Director

Social Services:

Mr. Chance was a very energetic, optimistic resident from day 1. He was determined to work his hardest to return home with his family safely. He was always smiling and outgoing; his own personal health was his best interest. He bonded so well with the entire staff; he continues to come to Beeghly Oaks for outpatient therapy to gain strength with the best therapy team around.
