Roseann S. is a 74-year-old female who was admitted to the facility with complications from ovarian cancer. Roseann required assistance with the majority of her activities of daily living, from dressing, bed mobility, and activity tolerance to bathing and functional mobility. With the help of both physical therapy and occupational therapy services, Roseann overcame her challenges and reduced the level of assistance she initially required. She was able to successfully showcase all of her gains in her final home assessment, moving about through her home with modified independence with a variety of tasks ranging from accessing the tub, reaching for items in the cupboard, demonstrating laundry tasks and preparing a simple meal. Way to go Roseann, we wish you success at home. You truly rocked rehab!!!
Mrs. C. is a 85-year-old female who was admitted for complications of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and a compression fracture resulting from a fall. Upon her admission, she demonstrated decreased strength, functional mobility, transfers, and activity tolerance. She required moderate assistance with most daily tasks, from her toileting needs to getting out of bed, getting ready in the morning to transferring to her wheelchair. Mrs. C. participated in both physical therapy and occupational therapy five times weekly to increase her overall level of independence, strength and activity tolerance. She is now able to self-transfer out of her bed, complete tasks such as toileting, hygiene and grooming, and she is more mobile throughout the community. Great job Mrs. C. Keep up with the good work.
