How did this patient hear about The Enclave? Hospital
Details of Experience:
Dorothy was admitted to The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on July 23, 2019, from White Plains Hospital, following an inpatient stay due to a fall. Shortly after her arrival, she was warmly greeted by members of the interdisciplinary team, including the nurses, therapists, and physicians.
Cynthia, her physical therapist, and Tim, her occupational therapist, met Dorothy and performed their initial evaluations as well as preliminary goals. She presented with muscle weakness, decreased sitting balance and immediate standing balance, and limited turning of 360 degrees, severely impacting her ability to independently perform basic activities of daily living (ADL’s). She was wheelchair independent and needed help with dressing and bathing. Short term goals were established to help her regain strength while nursing carefully monitored the pain levels so that she could maximize her time in therapy.
The day after Dorothy was admitted into The Enclave, she realized that her good friend was coming to The Enclave. She had notified the staff about this. Without a moment’s delay, the Admissions team along with Nursing and Maintenance arranged a room change so that Dorothy can reside with her good friend. Needless to say, they were both thrilled to hear this. This also got Dorothy to a good motivational start in Therapy.
Only one month after entering The Enclave, Dorothy was discharged, together with her friend, back home with renewed strength and independence. Her sitting balance and immediate standing balance was steady. She was able to walk continuous steps to turn 360 degrees. She was independent in her bathing and dressing, and most important of all, she was not wheelchair-bound. As a matter of fact, she was able to walk on her own two feet. Amazing!!
We are so thrilled that Dorothy is back home. When she was asked about her experience here, she gave a rating of 10/10, saying how the staff was “exceptional, and very nice”! We wish Dorothy the best of luck!
