Success Story: Donald

Donald Teeter came to The Gardens at Easton following a recent hospitalization; showing significant de-conditioning and a decrease in:

  • Overall leg strength resulting in limitations to my functional mobility
  • Getting in/out of bed and standing up from a bed/chair, now needing 75%-100% assist
  • Ability to walk; only able to walk 75 feet with 75% assist versus 300 feet without assist
  • Ability to maintain my balance with mobility and was a high fall risk

Working with Donald, our therapy teams developed an comprehensive recovery plan and workable timeline – our goal was to help Donald regain his strength and return to independence with walking.

In a little over a month of intensive skilled therapy, Donald was able to:

  • INDEPENDENTLY get in/out of bed and stand up from both a bed and chair
  • INDEPENDENTLY walk over 500 feet with a rolling walker, which is even farther than when I first came to The Gardens of Easton!
  • Perform mobility at a low to no fall risk

Donald has demonstrated hard work, determination, perseverance, and commitment daily to achieve his goals. With strong staff and therapy support, Donald has reached his therapy goals. Donald has always brought laughs and smiles with his one of a kind personality, and the therapy team is excited to congratulate him for all his success!
