How did this patient hear about Beeghly Oaks Center? A former resident of ours was his best friend.

Nursing: Mr. Noble was a pleasure to have as a patient. He was very dedicated to his progress with therapy and diligent with his programs. He was also very inspiring to our other residents and staff with his kind words and joyful demeanor. We wish him the best wishes in his own home.
– Lisa Spring, D.O.N.

Therapy: James Noble was admitted to Beeghly Oaks on 9/1/16 with a pubic fracture, which resulted in his inability to walk, transfer himself, or perform his activities of daily living without assistance. Upon admission, Mr. Noble was very motivated to progress preventing him of returning home. He required moderate assistance for all mobility. He needed safety education in order to increase his strength and balance to decrease risk of falls. He participated daily in skilled occupational and physical therapy, and within seven weeks he was able to return home. On October 21, 2016, he was walking independently with a walker and performing all his daily needs independently. Congratulations James, it was pleasure working with you.
– Shannon Blissenbach, Director of Rehabilitation

Activities: What a gentle and sweet man, Mr. Noble was such a joy to talk with. He attended a few of the activities and was a friend to all that came. Good Luck, James and God bless you.
– Maureen McCarty, Recreational Therapy Director

Dietary: James was a soft spoken and very nice man. He never complained about anything. He loved it here at Beeghly and was a joy to have around. James, we miss you and take care.
– Jeanette Loggins, Dietary MAnager

Social Services: Mr. James Noble was a pleasant and cooperative gentleman. James was hospitalized during his short term rehabilitation stay and verbalized on several occasions, upon return, of how pleased he was to be back in the community. Mr. Noble was extremely complimentary of staff and community and offered no concerns and complaints. Upon admission, James verbalized that he may have desired to discharge to his son’s home if he was not confident with returning home alone to his apartment. Upon completion of his stay, Mr. Noble was able to return home to his own apartment and verbalized complete confidence in himself and the progress he made during his journey at Beeghly Oaks.
– Nicole Bennett, LSW

Concierge: Mr. Noble is quite the gentleman; always ready to pay us a compliment and loves everything. I so enjoyed his stories of his family and he was so very proud of all of them. He is the prime example of a caring soul. To know him is to adore him. God Bless you Mr. Noble and thank you for choosing Beeghly Oaks for your Rehab.
– Carol Zeigler, Director of Concierge Services
