Details of Experience:

Resident arrived to The Grove with a host of medical issues ranging from balance and mobility challenges to respiratory based diagnosis. Resident was clearly a fall risk and had an elevated blood pressure that hindered event the slightest rehab sessions. Within 2 months, our team worked with resident slowly and confidently, bringing her up to par with a safe discharge!

It was definitely a team effort. Before each therapy session- both Physical and Occupational- our therapists had to check with the charge nurse to see resident’s blood pressure to ensure all is safe before getting the green light for the session. Our MD had to delicately plan a course of correct meds to fit resident’s lifestyle and enable her to be at The Grove rehabilitating correctly. Resident’s vitals and blood pressure were monitored frequently and the team made extra efforts to show the resident how much we care for her well being. Round the clock rounds from the concierge and social workers provided resident and her family with emotional support and all amenities available to her, so she can be as comfortable as possible while with us.

Therapeutic Recreational activities were offered and accepted by the resident, and by participating, we were able to give her the social support to help her enjoy her stay to the fullest. This resident is going home with a smile and the tools necessary to be safe and enjoy all that life has to offer. Great job team!
