Patient is a 94 year old widowed female born in Georgia in 1920. She has 2 daughters, one that lives with her and one that lives in West Hempstead. She has been living in the house in RVC since 1959. She enjoys her family and going to church, she mentioned that these are the two most important
factors in her life.

She was admitted from SNCH on 1/15/15 with a diagnosis of: CHF, difficulty in walking and A-fib. Patient came to Facility after a fall from home. Patients’ family stated upon admission that she might stay here long term because she is no longer capable of living independently.

Patient received intensive physical and occupational therapy to maximize independence for safe return to community. During her stay medical work up was completed due to increased forgetfulness and confusion and all of the family`s medical concerns were addressed.

Recreation team worked along the side of the nursing team and every discipline which made our discharge goal for her a very successful one. She now requires less assistance than prior admittance to the hospital and was discharged last week to home.
