Details of Experience:
Michael was admitted to The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on May 8, 2021, from Greenwich Hospital. The Enclave at Rye was recommended to Michael by his doctor, following his hip replacement surgery.
Upon arrival, Michael was welcomed and evaluated by the interdisciplinary team, including nursing, rehabilitation, social services, Concierge, and recreation departments. Shortly after arrival, a personalized treatment plan was developed by the team. Michael would benefit from physical and occupational therapy.
Robert, his physical therapist, and Frishta, his occupational therapist, met with Michael, and they got to work. Following Michael’s hip replacement surgery, Michael was experiencing muscle weakness and pain in his hip. He required physical therapy to regain strength, improve bed mobility, and help him walk and ambulate stairs again. Occupational therapy was to help him with his ADLs, including bathing, toileting, and dressing. Dr. Abbey and the nursing team worked closely with Michael monitoring his pain while making sure his medications were dispensed on time.
Michael enjoyed hanging out in the day-room drinking coffee while socializing with the other residents, all the while listening to some hits from the ’60s. We also had the pleasure of hosting Michael’s new baby granddaughter, as well as his cute puppy. After just two weeks here, Michael was walking and going upstairs again. His mobility and bed transfer abilities had improved beyond expectation. As his pain subsided, Michael was ready and excited to go back home. Janel, his social worker, arranged for all of the equipment that Michael would need to be delivered to his home.
On May 24, Michael shared that he really appreciated the staff, and he was extremely happy that he chose the Enclave. Michaels, son came to pick him up, and he walked out of the Enclave as a friend!
We already miss Michael!
