Our Lady of Angels Retirement Home (OLA) offers rehabilitation services for seniors needing additional therapy to complete their recovery after an ailment or hospital stay. Nancy White, recently completed her rehab at OLA and shares her story.
At 85, Nancy is sharp-minded, an avid gardener, singer, tech-savy, and very independent senior. After an unfortunate fall caused her to break her left fibula, Nancy ended up in the hospital. Rehabilitation was recommended for full recovery. “When I was nearing the end of my hospital stay, a doctor recommended OLA for therapy,” Nancy states. “They said the therapists at OLA were great and the food was good, so my daughter and I decided to further explore this rehabilitation option.”
OLA offers patients physical and occupational therapy 6-7 days a week (to speed your recovery)and speech therapy 3-5 days a week, tailored to the individual’s recovery plan. Nancy’s recovery included both physical and occupational therapy. “The therapists were wonderful and considerate. They encouraged me as I made progress. I’m now back to walking using my walker,” Nancy says with a smile. Therapists work on patients’ mobility, strength and balance all while teaching safer practices to avoid reoccurring falls when returning home.
Patients can also take advantage of various amenities and life enrichment activities during their stay. Nancy comments, “I’ve attended all of Margaret Benoit’s sing-a-long music Mondays. I love singing!” OLA strives to ensure residents live at their highest level of comfort and security while enjoying each day.
