Details of Experience:
Ken was admitted to Hospitality following a stroke on July 17th, 2016. He entered Hospitality looking for rehabilitation and help with coordination. Prior to being hospitalized, Ken was fairly active, working outside and mowing lawns. When Ken first arrived, it took two therapists to get him into a sitting position because he was hyper-extended. However once he started his therapy routine, it didn’t take long for them to get him transferring from siting to standing. Physical and occupational therapy worked on strength, balance, and endurance. He had to undergo neuromuscular re-education to bring back the strength he had lost in his left side following the stroke.
Within the two and a half weeks he was at Hospitality, he regained his independence and was walking around the facility without supervision or assistance. Ken had a positive experience in therapy and had nothing but great things to say about his therapists. “Physical therapy works with you so you can get better. They want you to do things right, so you don’t have to come right back. They don’t let you slack. They also have patience. Rob and Amanda are great.” Ken met all of his therapy goals and was discharged on August 3rd, 2016. He was sent home with nursing and therapy services through Kettering Home Health.
