Short-Term Therapy Success Story

Sharon H. came to Fountainview last July and since then she has been a delight for the staff as well as the residents. That’s why when she began having more frequent falls our therapy team knew we had to intervene and keep Sharon safe and independent. Sharon was evaluated by our physical therapist and our occupational therapist and an individualized treatment plan were designed to help her regain her strength, improve her balance and transfers, and decrease her risk of falls.

Since being on therapy Sharon has made tremendous progress towards meeting her goals. She participates in therapy five times a week and is very motivated for self-improvement. Her strength and balance have improved, her fall risk has decreased greatly, and she will be discharged from therapy very soon. Great job on your progress Sharon we are so very proud of you!
