Success Story: Ellen P.

Ellen P is a long term resident who was recently hospitalized for pneumonia. She returned to the facility with orders from her physician for OT, PT and ST to go through our Pulmonary rehab program. We began to address her need for two liters of oxygen as well as her decline in her functional mobility decreasing her independence with all of her ADL’s. Ellen has since been able to ween completely off her need for continuous oxygen and has significantly increased her activity tolerance and safety awareness, thus allowing her more independence. With her motivation to progress in her therapy program she also has increased her participation in the activity’s she loves at Hacienda Oaks.
