Sandra O’Neal came to The Gardens of Orangeville having been experiencing physical weakness. Sandra was in pain and had difficulty performing simple tasks such as self-feeding and walking.
Sandra and her therapy team developed a plan to restore her strength, ambulation, and ability to complete ADLs. In short time, with self-determination, Sandra was able to return to return home. Upon discharge, Sandra was able to walk, complete upper body care, and required some assist with lower body care.
Before leaving the facility, Sandra thanked the staff, saying, “I want to thank the PT and OT departments here at The Gardens of Orangeville for getting me to where I am today. A few months ago I could not able to walk or feed myself. I now can do both. Without your help I would not be where I am today. The entire staff here has helped me a lot.”
