Details of Experience:

Marvin is a 92-year-old gentleman who came to the Legacy at Boca Raton on January 6, 2023, from Boca Regional Hospital to recover from COVID-19.

Upon his arrival, our Staff welcomed him to the community. He felt like he was meeting old friends. From the beginning, Marvin was determined to regain his independence. Nursing, Physical, and Occupational therapists evaluated him to develop an individual plan of recovery. All goals were set so Marvin could safely return to his Assisted Living Community. Marvin’s goals for Physical therapy were to perform bed mobility tasks safely and efficiently with standby assistance without using side rails, learn energy conservation techniques, proper sequencing, and correct hand/foot placement to get in and out of bed. By evaluation, he performed it with minimal assistance and by discharge with standby assistance. Other goals included safely performing functional transfers with independence, pushing up from the arms of the chair, shifting weight over the center of gravity, correctly using assistive devices, and correct hand/foot placement for safe maneuvering in small spaces with reduced risk for falls. Upon evaluation, he performed it with moderated assistance and by discharge with modified independence.

His last goal was to ambulate on level surfaces of 300 feet using a rolling walker with modified independence with a normalized gait pattern, adequate toe clearance, proper heel strike, normal base of support, with continuous steps, and safety during turning. By evaluation, he performed it 15 feet and by discharge 200 feet. His Physical therapists, Christofer and Yamet, were a great help. Marvin shared that his therapists were fantastic, and therapy was even better than his first stay. His Occupational Therapy goals were to perform low body dressing with set-up, and use of no adaptive equipment with standby assistance. By discharge, he performed it with modified independence. Marvin performed functional mobility during activities of daily living (ADL) using the least restrictive assistance device with supervision in order to ensure a safe return to prior level of function…at evaluation with moderate assistance and by discharge with standby assistance.

He performed toileting tasks using grab bars: at evaluation with minimum assistance and by discharge with standby assistance. During recovery, Marvin liked spending time on the porch socializing with other patients and making many friends. He attended our live music shows and enjoyed snacking during the day.

Marvin lives in an Assisted Living community. Having strong family support, his prognosis is excellent. By discharge, we recommended home health services to aid in a safe transition into the home environment.
Marvin not only physically regained his independence, but he was more positive and upbeat. He was very pleased and thanked everyone for the best of care.

We wish him a happy and healthy rest of 2023!
