Details of Experience:
Daniel was admitted to The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on July 5th, 2021, from Greenwich Hospital. The Enclave at Rye was recommended to Daniel by the hospital, and after his daughter heard amazing things, the Enclave was chosen as the best place for Daniel to rehabilitate. Upon arrival, Daniel and his daughters were welcomed by the Concierge, and he was immediately evaluated by the interdisciplinary team, including nursing, rehabilitation, social services, Concierge, and recreation departments. Shortly after, a personalized treatment plan was created by the team.
Meaghan, his physical therapist, and Raquel, his occupational therapist, met with Daniel and performed their comprehensive evaluation. Daniel had a fall at home, which caused weakness in both legs, especially on his entire left side. Daniel required maximum assistance with transferring and was non-ambulatory. With regard to his ADLs, Daniel needed help with dressing, bathing, and toileting. It was obvious that Daniel would benefit from physical and occupational therapy.
Nursing and Dr. Abbey were able to get Daniel’s pain under control, and with good communication with his family, Daniel settled in very nicely. It was suggested that his Daniels daughters be present during therapy to help encourage a strong performance. Daniel loved to sit out in the garden with his newly found friends and chat and relax under the sun. One day, Daniel’s family even came with some gifts for some of Daniel’s friends.
Daniel would enjoy eating snacks from the kitchen, and he always enjoyed it when his daughter would bring him some Burger King. Daniel worked himself hard in the gym. He trained with the new-step machine, which helped him with his endurance, and strengthened his arms and legs. The parallel bar was used for standing, and dumbbells were used for strengthening.
After just a few weeks here, Daniel was able to transfer out of bed by himself, toilet on his own, as well as get dressed without assistance. When he arrived, he was unable to walk more than five feet, and at discharge, he was able to walk over 150 feet with a walker. A few weeks and a total transformation!
Daniel was picked up by his daughter on August 12th and was brought home, where his family surprised him with a bedroom makeover. Following the discharge, our Concierge reached out to Daniel’s family to see how he was doing. They responded that he is doing well, but he misses being social with the friends that he made over at the Enclave!
We wish Daniel success as he returns to life at home, and we are so proud of him for what he was able to accomplish!
