Details of Experience:
Miss. Loretta Napier was admitted to our community from North Shore University Hospital on 1/19/2017 due to generalized weakness. Miss. Napier was a prominent social worker in the past, leading by example on how to effectively interact and build relationships with several prominent professionals and politicians. It was an honor to get to know Miss. Napier as she was an extremely intelligent and caring person. She would often mention to the Grand Pavilion community about how amazing the staff were and how she wished she could contribute to the team in any way possible. Miss. Napier arrived to our community for short term care with the intentions to return home with home care services to ensure her safety.
Loretta noted that she lived alone in a co-op with roughly five steps. Upon admission, she could walk with the assistance of a rolling walker. Her goals moving forward were to begin with rehab intensively with the hope of enhancing her activities of daily living (ADL’s). Loretta was extremely cooperative and worked as a true team player with both physical and occupational therapy. Physical therapy focused on educating her on proper and safe transfers and ambulation while occupational therapy focused on more functional transfers and mobility. Miss. Napier has come a long way in a very short amount of time with her improved health. Our team is proud to share that she was recently discharged with home health support on 2/23/2017! Upon discharge, Loretta was accompanied by her very supportive daughter. We are pleased with her progress and subsequent achievement of her goals.
