Success Story: Dennis W.

Dennis W. Success Story

Dennis W. came to Fountainview in February after a hospitalization following a fall at home. When Dennis first arrived, he required assistance with all of his activities of daily living. Dennis had increased weakness, decreased endurance and difficulty with his ambulation. Upon arrival Dennis required a wheelchair to get around the facility. Dennis was evaluated by our physical therapist, occupational therapist, and our speech therapist and an individualized plan of care was written to help Dennis meet his own personal goals and return to his prior level of function so that he could go back home to his apartment. Dennis was very motivated to get better and worked diligently five days a week with each of his therapists. He kept a positive attitude and a great outlook and after just 2 weeks Dennis was able to return home to his apartment with a strong support system in place. Great job on your hard work Dennis we are so proud of you!
