Details of Experience:

Wanda was admitted to Jupiter Gardens from Jupiter Medical Center for physical therapy. Wanda was hospitalized after an episode at home, and was admitted with a diagnosis of a lumbar fracture, and was scheduled for surgical correction.

Wanda has lived in the Jupiter area since 1960, after serving four years in United States Air Force as a AC-2, she settled here with her husband where they raised four children, and now enjoys the laughter of seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Wanda arrived with a high level of pain and was unable to complete many physical activities; she was also maximum assist with all her activities of daily living, bathing, toileting, dressing and transfers. Although Wanda began with a slow start, she has excelled in her therapy and enjoyed the enthusiasm and positivity she received from her therapists. Her levels now are supervision with bed mobility and transfers and standby assistance with gait.

Wanda is looking forward to returning home where she lives with her son, and eager to return to her daily chores and spending her free time reading and working on her computer.
