How did this patient hear about Gallatin Center? Family members

Kenneth Monahan arrived at Gallatin Center after suffering a fall at home. This event happened just as he was recently discharged from another skilled nursing community. Kenneth suffers from chronic pain, obesity, and reports having a stroke seven months prior.

Upon arrival, Kenneth required two people to help him get in and out of bed and required a lot of assistance with bathing and dressing. Being unable to walk at first, Kenneth quickly progressed to wheelchair level then progressed to walking with a rolling walker up to 200 feet with contact guard assistance!

Kenneth gained a lot of strength, endurance, and balance. His variety of exercises that included balance training was implemented by his therapist. During his stay with us, Kenneth lost 35 pounds! Kenneth made a significant improvement with physical and occupational therapy. We are happy to say that his hard work truly paid off. His overall health improved while staying here with us. As he was discharged February 1st, we miss his friendly smile and amazing attitude, but we wish him all the continued success he has so greatly worked for!
