How did this patient hear about The Grand Pavilion? Closest location to home.

Patient is an 80 year old male who came to GP after a severe fall from home. Patient stated that upon admission he has very limited mobility and is fearful that he may never be able to walk or stand up again. The trauma happened to the patient while he was alone at home. His immediate family who does not live far from him went home to the Philippines for the holidays. During his whole stay at GP, no one was able to pay him a visit but this did not stop the man for being optimistic and friendly towards everyone.
Ben, as he preferred to be called by some and Tatay (which means Father in his native language) by many was the shining smiling face of GP during his month and a half stay here. With four weeks of intensive physical and occupational therapy he was able to maximize full independence to return back to his apartment. Unfortunately, his landlord no longer wanted him back to return to the apartment but this circumstance still didn’t make him any less of a happy man that he has been from day one.
Social Work team worked hand in hand with the patient and the landlord and with a safe and proper discharge, the patient returned back to his apartment and he remains a happy man.
