Success Stories

Welcome to Louisville East Post Acute, where we cherish every resident’s journey to wellness! Join us as we honor our resident’s success stories. We were honored to be a part of the healing process for each resident we had the pleasure of serving.

Congratulations to Maxie!

Maxie participated in Skilled Occupational Therapy at Louisville East Post AcuteMaxie arrived at our facility following a fall she had at her ALF.  Maxie had a decline from her prior level of function with all of her ADLs and functional mobility.  At the evaluation, Maxie was dependent on sit-to-stand and was unable to walk.  Through progressive resistive exercises, ROM, and balance training with PT she is now able to perform sit-to-stand with a walker or a grab bar with minimal assistance.  Amazingly she is taking steps now with PT walking with a walker approximately 10 feet!  The ALF she previously resided stated she is stronger now than when she was residing at their facility.

Maxie has also participated in Skilled Occupational Therapy.  At the evaluation, Maxie was dependent and occasionally had maximum assistance with toilet transfers.  Through improvement with upper body strengthening and education with compensatory techs she has improved her ability to push up from the wheelchair arms, reach out for a grab bar, and pivot to a bedside commode over the toilet with moderate assistance and occasionally minimal assistance.

The therapy team has really enjoyed working with Maxie and is very excited about all her progress here at Louisville East Post Acute!

Congratulations to Oma!

Oma made good progress with skilled Occupational TherapyOma came to Louisville East Post-Acute after a recent hospitalization to participate in Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy services.  Her goal was to return home with her family. Oma had a choice to make at the hospital. Receive a PEG tube or have the most restrictive diet due to the severity of her swallowing deficits. With her family’s help, Oma chose the diet change, which consisted of pureed texture and honey-thickened liquids, with hopeful expectations of improving her swallow strength and returning to the foods she normally eats. Oma and her Speech Therapist worked very hard with intensive dysphagia treatments that included therapeutic exercise and NMES treatment.  At the time of discharge, Oma and her family’s hopes progressed to a reality.  She was strong enough to tolerate a diet with no restrictions!

Oma also made good progress with skilled Occupational Therapy. At the evaluation, she required maximum assistance with her daily skills, for example, self-feeding and toileting.  Through therapeutic activities and education on compensatory strategies, she was able to improve requiring minimal assistance required to complete her daily routines. In Physical therapy, Oma made incredible gains!  At the evaluation, she was unable to participate in ambulation due to poor strength and balance.  At discharge, she was able to ambulate 75 feet with CGA, which was functional for her to return home with her family. Oma stated, “I love the therapy here I am going to come back just to visit them.”

Congratulations Oma on excelling in therapy and discharging home with your family.
