Details of Experience:

Nursing:

Mr. Signor came to us on 7/1/16 with a Left Fibula Fracture. Mr. Signor consistently displayed perseverance and a positive attitude toward his goals. He continued to meet his goals on a weekly basis all the while being pleasant with the staff and cheering on the other residents; he was a pleasure to be around. Mr. Signor made a successful discharge home on Sept. 17, 2016. Mr. Signor has visited our community since his discharge to encourage the residents and to thank the staff for their assistance in his recovery.

Lisa Spring, D.O.N.

Therapy:

Mr. Signor arrived here at Beeghly Oaks in July 2016 with a left fibula fracture and was non-weight bearing on that leg. He was very limited in his ability to perform daily activities and transfers without extensive assistance from care givers. He participated in physical and occupational therapy daily and was very motivated to achieve his goals in order to return home at an independent status as he was prior to this accident. He strived to make gains every week and continued to impress us with his strength and determination. He was able to walk, transfer himself, and perform all of his daily activities when he left our facility and returned home September 18, 2016. Great job David……it was a pleasure to work with you!

Shannon Blissenbach, Director of Rehabilitation

Activities:

It was a great privilege to care for a long time friend of mine; I’ve known Scott for over 15 years. He lives an extraordinary life of service as a Pastor, and foster parent. Reconnecting with Scott at Beeghly was a great pleasure. Scott’s love for people, humor, and big heart became an integral part of our days in our community. The recreation department’s programs became an addition to his therapy routine. Scott’s participation in groups and one to one fostered strong connections with people; his peers, staff, residents and families at Beeghly Oaks enjoyed his leadership as well as his company. The recreation department became a tool that lifted and sustained his rehabilitation and putting his giving nature to work in groups, encouraged him during a challenging time away from home. It was a pleasure caring for this forever Beeghly friend!
