How did this patient hear about the Phoenix?

Details of Experience:

Ms. Slater was admitted to The Phoenix Rehabilitation & Nursing Center after a post- inpatient hospitalization at The Methodist Hospital in result from a left knee replacement surgery.

She arrived to our community in a great deal of pain, which made it difficult for her therapeutic program away from her bedside. For the first two days of her journey, she refused to participate in therapy from the pain. After consistent and warm encouragement, she decided to begin her therapeutic programming and strive to regain her health. Once beginning her program, she fell in love!

Ms. Slater shared, “my therapist tells jokes to me and at the same time, she knows the perfect way to do the exercises with me. She made me very comfortable.”

The Phoenix team arranged for physical and occupational therapy six days a week. The rapport built between Ms. Slater and the team was magical!

Her progress exceeded all of our expectations. She graduated from our rehabilitation program after just two weeks where she rose from minimum assistance to a level of modified independence.

In addition to her her clinical and therapeutic participation, she also enjoyed a majority of the recreational programming at The Phoenix, which included bingo, karaoke, cooking club, and our spa days! We are thrilled with the achievements Ms. Slater achieved while with our community!
