Details of Experience:

Ronald Davis arrived at The Grove from Hudson Valley Medical Center after surgery for an AKA (Above Knee Amputation). Ronald is originally from Peekskill, New York, and still lives there today. After Ronald had the surgery, he and his family were looking for the best option for him to rehabilitate. They chose The Grove of Valhalla due to all the positive things they have heard and having his sisters live nearby.

Ronald required Physical and Occupational Therapy services to increase LE ROM (lower extremity range of motion) and strength, increase functional activity tolerance, improve balance and promote safety awareness in order to enhance the patient’s quality of life by improving their ability to return to their prior level of functional abilities. When Ronald originally came to The Grove, he could not ambulate, required assistance in standing/sitting, and required assistance to transfer himself to bed, wheelchair, and/or toilet. By the end of Ronald’s stay at The Grove, he had achieved modified independence, and he could transfer himself to and from his bed, wheelchair, and toilet and could perform daily tasks independently. 

What Ronald appreciated the most was how the PT and OT therapists worked with and motivated him to get stronger and independent again, as well as the nursing staff being so attentive and caring, such as Paula, Sara, Ava, Tamara, and Sandra. Ronald is now going to his home in Peekskill, New York, where he is excited and hopeful to be able to live and do things independently again.

Prior to his hospitalization, Ronald worked as a Delegate for 1199 and was a Maintenance Director for York Town Rehab. In his personal time, Ronald enjoys reading, fishing, and watching sports. We are extremely proud of Ronald’s rehabilitation process. The team at

The Grove strives to meet our patients’ and residents’ needs and expectations. Through hard work and dedication, Ronald reached his goals.
