Details of Experience:

Montalais was admitted to Sans Souci Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on July 15, 2016 with a diagnosis of CVA, pneumonia, sepsis, a gastrointestinal (GI) bleed and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Upon Admission, Montalais, assessed by the rehabilitation team at Sans Souci, was non-ambulatory and needed extensive assistance in performing his activities of daily living (ADL’s). Montalais had poor transfer mobility, weak coordination and little strength, which resulted in him being a fall risk and a risk for further decline in his health. After a few weeks of therapy, Montalais started to make extensive progress.

Montalais’ entire affect began to change as he saw how well he was doing and the light at the end of the tunnel was drawing closer. When Montalais was prepared for discharge on September 13, he was ambulating 100 ft. with stand by assist with a rolling walker. Additionally, Montalais was able to perform all of his ADL’s independently. On the date of Montalais’ discharge, he showed so much appreciation and happiness for achieving his therapeutic goals and healing. Thank you to the entire interdisciplinary team here at Sans Souci who made this possible. ReNEWal Happens Here!
