Details of Experience:

Mr. Cowan arrived at Manchester Center after a two-week stay at Vanderbilt Medical Center due to a motor vehicle accident where he sustained numerous injuries. Upon his arrival, Mr. Cowan did not know what to expect. Mr. Cowan was met by many of our team members, Admissions, Social Services, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, and many more.

When our therapy team evaluated Mr. Cowan, they knew he was in a delicate situation after sustaining injuries to his left clavicle, jaw, nasal bones, and many ribs. Mr. Cowan had issues with his balance, muscle weakness, LUE non-weight bearing in a sling, and difficulty swallowing and breathing. He was Max Assist or dependent with all self-care and mobility and had swallowing difficulties.

Our therapy team provided training to help Mr. Cowan eat, drink, and walk. While at Manchester Center, Mr. Cowan received OT, PT, and ST. Mr. Cowan had many obstacles to overcome but made strides daily to improve. Mr. Cowan significantly improved in the four weeks he was with us at Manchester Center. He was able to discharge back to the community on a regular diet, walk with a cane, and complete all self-care tasks by himself.

I contacted Mr. Cowan a few weeks after his discharge, and he stated that he is doing great and that he is super happy with the Therapy team here!

Mr. Cowan, Manchester Center wishes you a happy and healthy future!!
