Details of Experience:

Mr. Lane arrived at Manchester Center after a right above-knee amputation (AKA), and he also had complications with his wound healing with needs for wound care and a wound vac. Upon his arrival, Mr. Lane did not know what to expect. Mr. Lane was met by many of our team members, Admissions, Social Services, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and many more.

When our therapy team evaluated Mr. Lane, he required extensive assistance with transfers, propelling a wheelchair, dressing, toileting, and bathing. After receiving physical and occupational therapy over the course of 5 weeks, Mr. Lane could become independent with these skills. He also progressed with walking by using a rolling walker and “hopping” while his leg wound healed.

The therapy staff coordinated consultations with a prosthetics company and continued to work with Mr. Lane after he left the community. He was safely discharged back to the community with support from his sister.

Mr. Lane, Manchester Center wishes you a happy and healthy future!!
