How did this patient hear about Green Hills Center for Rehabilitation and Healing?

Details of experience:
Marva was admitted to Green Hills Center for Rehabilitation and Healing on 11/2/2022. She arrived to our community from Skyline Medical Center. Ms. Goodman was admitted with a diagnosis of drug-induced Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. Drug-Induced Systemic Lupus Erythematosus is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own tissues, causing widespread inflammation and tissue damage in the affected organs. It can affect the joints, skin, brain, lungs, kidneys, and blood vessels.

Marva’s initial feelings arriving at Green Hills were the same as anyone else’s – new and not knowing if she would be able to return to living her life as she used to, if not better. Upon her arrival, Marva was greeted by our interdisciplinary team, which includes Nursing, Social Services, Concierge, Rehabilitation, and Recreation. Marva required rehabilitation services to improve all Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). She initially struggled with decreased motivation and self-efficacy and was unable to ambulate over 10 feet. Her goal was to “just go home.”

Initially, Marva lacked the motivation to reach her rehabilitation goals – to gain strength, balance, and all ADL levels to return home to her friends and family. But Marva came to work extremely hard to improve her self-motivation and belief, exceeding her baseline goals. She is now independent with bed mobility, is able to ambulate unlimited distances with a rollator, and has functional transfers with modified independence.

Marva was discharged from Green Hills Center on 12/30/2022, stating that she will miss everyone who helped her reach the levels she is at now. Social Services assisted with Marva’s discharge home with her family and friends. Marva was extremely grateful to the team at Green Hills Center.

We all wish Marva the best of luck in her continuing health journey!
