At BayWoods, we understand facing a health issue that limits mobility, speech, or motor control can have a profound effect on a patient. We do everything in our power to deliver a rehabilitation plan that inspires confidence and independence in our residents.
- Name: Richard Hopkins
Mr. Hopkins was admitted to our facility after a fall at home resulting in rhabdomyolysis with generalized weakness and debility. Upon admission, he needed max assistance with all ADL’s, he was unable to ambulate or transfer without extensive trunk and knee flexion, and had a noted decline in memory and problem solving. He was a high risk for falls and demonstrated an overall decline in strength, balance, and endurance needed to complete any activity.
Mr. Hopkins was evaluated by Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy and was given an individualized care plan to maximize his independence over the course of his stay.
As demonstrated in the outcome graphs, Mr. Hopkins made significant gains in all areas of his self care, transfers, mobility and cognitive status. He is now able to transfer independently, ambulate without a device more than 500 feet on a variety of surfaces throughout the facility, including stairs, and continues to address executive level memory and problem solving with the speech therapist in an outpatient setting. He demonstrates modified independence with ADL’s and IADL’s with good safety, strength and endurance needed to perform everyday tasks and facility activities. His cognitive skills continue to increase in outpatient speech therapy for attention span, delayed memory & recall and other executive level cognitive skills.
Upon discharge from his skilled stay, Mr. Hopkins purchased an Independent Living apartment at Baywoods. He states, “The wonderful rehab personnel took charge of my recovery and had me up in a walker within a few days. It did not take me long to realize BayWoods is where I want to spend my future days”.
