THERAPY SUCCESS STORY
One of the things we pride ourselves on here at Clearwater Nursing & Rehabilitation is creating an environment where residents can blossom and reach their highest potential in every way. Of course, this includes attaining the highest level of independence with tasks related to self-care. But it also includes promoting an environment which allows residents to reach their highest potential with social skills.
With this in mind, our success story this month is James Payne. He came to Clearwater Nursing & Rehabilitation from the hospital. He had been through a lot, required therapy to regain strength and was socially withdrawn. After initially being admitted to our Memory Care Neighborhood, he patiently demonstrated that he did not need the services provided in the Memory Care Neighborhood. He now is very active in all sorts of activities and seems to have developed deep and meaningful relationships with his peers. He has shown himself to be an exercise enthusiast as an active member of the daily exercise group. He has demonstrated his abilities on the dance floor. And recently, he has shown a willingness to try new things when we held a painting class.
James is not the same person he was when he came to Clearwater. He is happier, healthier, and more involved in the lives of those around him.
