Details of Experience:

Mr. Williams was admitted to The Phoenix Rehabilitation & Nursing Center in result of a recent toe amputation at The Bellevue Hospital.

When he arrived to the Phoenix community, he presented as very weak. He also was noted to have lost a great deal of weight during his early stages of healing following his surgery. After Mr. Williams’ surgery, he was unable to stand independently as his balance was significantly off.

Upon admission, Mr. Williams was placed on five day rotation for physical and occupational therapy. The goal of the rehabilitation team here at The Phoenix revolved around building ample strength in Mr. Williams’ lower extremities to later facilitate the potential to walk. His journey began with the support of a rolling walker where it was anticipated that he could be upgraded to a quad cane to continue providing support for his ambulation.

As Mr. Williams neared the end of his therapeutic journey here at The Phoenix, he began floor exercises alongside the guidance of our therapy team. After much success and progress gained with our team, Mr. Williams is now able to independently walk up an incredible five flights of stairs! He truly enjoyed his stay with our community as he continued to heal each and every day. He was especially an advocate of the in-house entertainment, which included karaoke and bingo night on Friday! The team here at The Phoenix Rehabilitation & Nursing center wish you well Mr. Williams as you continue to heal and grow.
