A Note From Therapy
Mr. Dawson was admitted to San Rafael from the hospital after having multiple falls at home due to weakness from congestive heart failure. While in the hospital he was unable to make full recovery to return home safely. He arrived at San Rafael unable to perform activities of daily living and transfers without assistance and unable to walk without assistance which led him to using a wheelchair. He is actively participated in occupational and physical therapy 5 times a week and was very motivated to get stronger. When Mr. Dawson discharged from San Rafael he was able to walk independently as well as perform dressing, toileting and all other activities of daily living independently to make a safe return to his home. He was thankful for all the nursing staff and therapy staff for helping him become stronger and regain his ability to be independent enough to return home.
