Success Story: Ronald

Ronald Burdge came to The Gardens of Easton having been hospitalized with worsening shortness of breath due to increased fluid in his lungs. Following hospitalization, Ronald came to the Gardens of Easton very de-conditioned, and during the evaluation it was determined he had difficulty with:

  • Getting in/out of bed and standing up from a bed/chair and needed 75% assist
  • Walking and could only walk with 75% assist up to 10 feet with a rolling walker
  • Ability to wash and dress myself independently and needed 75-100% assist
  • Safety when standing and walking and was a high risk for falls
  • Ability to recall recent information and demonstrate safety awareness needing 50% cueing

In just a little over a month of intensive physical, occupational and speech therapy, Ronald was now able to:

  • Get in/out of bed and stand up from both a bed and chair with modified independence
  • Walk with a rolling walker up to 500 feet with modified independence
  • Wash and dress myself with modified independence
  • Standing and walking at a low fall risk
  • Recall recent information and demonstrate safety awareness without cueing

Ronald has demonstrated hard work, determination, perseverance, and commitment daily to achieve his goals. With strong therapy support, Ronald has now reached his goals and is nearing discharge to LIVE HIS INDEPENDENCE! Our team is excited to congratulate Ronald for all his success and wish him the best of luck! Ronald has been a bright addition to our days and will surely be missed!
