Cellulitis, a serious skin infection, had left Robert Trail weak.
Trail came to Life Care Center of Morgan County in Wartburg, Tennessee, on June 9, 2017, for help recovering from this condition and regaining his independence.
When he arrived, Trail needed extensive assistance to walk and to transfer from one surface to another. He needed moderate assistance with his hygiene, as well as to bathe and get dressed, and he needed minimal assistance to get in and out of bed and balance while standing or sitting.
Trail did physical and occupational therapy six times a week. Occupational therapists focused on retraining him to do the daily tasks he would need to do at home. Physical therapists focused on increasing his strength and mobility. Both therapy disciplines used the NuStep® exercise machine to help him strengthen his upper and lower body.
“I received some quality care and great therapy here,” said Trail.
Trail returned home on Aug. 4, independent in all his self-care and mobility.
