Rehabilitation plays a vital role in the lives of many senior citizens when they experience health issues. Ms. Sophie, 89 years old, came to New Iberia Manor North after suffering from congestive heart failure. She was short of breath, experiencing overall weakness and unable to walk.
After working rigorously for many hours with the therapy team at New Iberia Manor North completing therapeutic exercises, self-care exercises, and gait training, Sophie has made tremendous progress. She can now walk on her own, get in and out of bed and care for herself without assistance. Sophie has been discharged from the facility and lives with her granddaughter and her two great-grandchildren. She was eager to get back to washing clothes, to cooking and to playing bingo. Another successful transition back to home after benefiting from physical therapy in a nursing facility!
