Discharge Date: 10/10/16

Length of Stay: 18 months

Details of Experience:

Patient arrived to The Grove at Valhalla with high hopes, very motivated, and in good spirits. He had undergone a successful hip replacement surgery and though it went well, he was still in need of physical and occupational therapy to support him before discharging home. Upon being admitted, he was met by our rehabilitation team, who performed their patient assessments, and found that the patient was unable to walk independently. The patient successfully built a strong rapport with his therapists as progress was made daily. Together, they challenged each other to march toward complete rejuvenation.

The nursing team also played an important and vital role for ushering valued health for the patient. From assisting the patient with skilled care, to the friendly nurses providing medication, to the smiling nursing assistants serving meals in our dining room to patient, each and every team member positively connected with patient on a daily basis. After approximately two weeks, the patient who arrived at The Grove at Valhalla post-surgery independently walked out the main lobby of the community to his car in observance of a successful discharge home!

He had the following to say about his stay:

“My stay at The Grove at Valhalla was excellent. The PT and OT staff were amazing; very knowledgeable, helpful, supportive and my therapists were instrumental in allowing me to make the great progress that I had in two weeks after my hip replacement surgery. The nursing staff and nursing assistant staff were also wonderful and very helpful.”
I would highly recommend The Grove for any rehabilitation or long-term care needs.”
