Details of Experience:
Joe was admitted to The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on August 4th, 2022, from White Plains Hospital. The Hospital recommended the Enclave at Rye to Joe and his daughter, and after some research, the admission was booked.
Upon arrival to our community, Joe and his daughter were welcomed by our concierge, and from that point on, Joe became “Uncle Joe .”He was immediately evaluated by the interdisciplinary team and was glad to settle in for his rehab journey, which would enable him to return home safely.
The therapy team met with Uncle Joe and performed their evaluation. Joe came from the Hospital after presenting with Covid 19. He was feeling weak at home and started to lose his balance, which resulted in him falling. When Joe arrived at the Enclave, our therapy team observed some muscle weakness, balance deficits, and decreased mobility. He also presented with deficits in fine and gross motor coordination, with a decreased tolerance level. He required assistance with his dressing, bathing, and toileting, and it was obvious that with some good physical and occupational therapy, Joe would be able to return home at his prior level of functioning and enjoy life again.
Joe was fun to be around and always had something funny to share. He enjoyed hanging out in our day room, having fun with our activities, as well as coming downstairs for our daily entertainment. Joe worked diligently with Jenny and Victor, making little progress every day. Joe was regaining his strength, stamina, and balance. He was tolerating more time walking daily and improving his toileting and dressing ability. The therapists loved working with Uncle Joe and always had fun in the gym together.
After three weeks of successful therapy and nursing care, Joe and his daughter began planning his discharge home with our social worker. A date was planned for Joe to go home to his family. This discharge date gave Joe extra motivation during his final days here, and by the time the big day arrived, Joe was at his prior level of functioning. As the concierge waved him off with a gift bag, Joe got into his car without any assistance.
Joe’s stay with us was a short one but extremely productive. Our goal is to give every patient the ability to get back home, and Joe met his goals beautifully! Joe is currently home with his family and enjoying himself daily as an independent man! He worked hard to get to this point, and he isn’t stopping!
We miss you, Uncle Joe!
