Mr. Cowan had issues with his balance, muscle weakness, LUE non-weight bearing in a sling, and difficulty swallowing and breathing.

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!

She was very grateful for the care she received. She stated, “they have given me the greatest gift…to be able to walk again. I can’t thank Manchester Center enough!”

Ms. Amolsch, Manchester Center wishes you a bright and healthy future!

Ms. Phillips first arrived at our community on 07/23/21 with pneumonia, causing COPD and respiratory failure complications, making the patient weak, fatigued, and oxygen-dependent.

Upon arrival, she was met by several of our team members, such as Social Services, Recreational Therapy Dietary, and many more. She felt very welcomed. Ms. Phillips was a very upbeat lady with the drive to get better. When our therapy team initially evaluated Ms. Phillips, she could only walk about 50 feet and was easily fatigued and oxygen-dependent when ambulating. She was a high fall risk during her activities of daily living (ADLs). After working for three weeks with our wonderful therapy team, she was able to transition back home safely and complete all ADLs independently…walking 300 feet before becoming fatigued.

During her stay, our Concierge spent some time chatting with her. She told us she was once a CNA. She understood the work, and she was so happy with the nursing staff in our community. Everyone made her feel welcome, and she had a wonderful stay. 

Ms. Phillips, Manchester Center wishes you all the best and a healthy future!
