Maria, 64 came to The Gardens at Wyoming Valley following a hospitalization due to lower extremity cellulitis, Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), and both renal and respiratory failure.
Previously, Maria was independent with all functional tasks and resided locally at home with her grandson. Upon admission to The Gardens, Maria was unable to stand and ambulate and required total assistance for bathing, dressing, toileting, grooming and functional transfers. In addition, Maria presented with decreased activity tolerance.
Working with Maria, our therapy teams developed a comprehensive rehabilitation plan with attainable strategic objectives. Maria met each challenge with fortitude and determination, together we made her goal of returning home a reality – congratulations Maria upon this tremendous milestone!
