Success: Robert Q.

Robert Q.came to Christian Heights Nursing Home on December 5, 2017 from Jennie Stuart Medical Hospital in Hopkinsville, KY. When Robert arrived at Christian Heights he had limited movement in his legs, and experienced major challenges moving his upper torso. Robert was pretty much bed ridden and needed to build his physical strength as well as his endurance. With his determination and the skill of our Nursing and Rehab staff, Robert will be transitioning home on March 1, 2018. Only three months after his admission to our facility.

Robert was very pleased with Christian Heights and the Therapy staff. He said that Christian Heights was very good to him. “When I got here I was very upset because I couldn’t do anything. I couldn’t even move, but in two months the great therapy staff took me a long way in two months”. The therapy staff was very pleased with his efforts. Carla said that “he never said no. He worked hard, and did whatever we asked. When he couldn’t get there himself we’d come and get him and he’d be very cooperative”.

Robert is returning home now. He worked hard and was determined to do what was necessary to get better. He’s looking forward to life after Christian Heights, however he said that “words can’t express my thanks for the admissions and therapy team for helping me get through my situation. I’ll never forget this place. I’ve met a lot of friends and I’ll try my best to stay in touch with them” .

Robert’s advice to short-term residents is “work hard, and do what you need to do even when you don’t feel like it, and you’ll make quick progress” Robert is excited to be going home and we wish him much success on his return back into the community.
