Details of Experience:

Maxie Jeter, 98, arrived to Quality Center for Rehabilitation & Healing in seek of rehabilitation. She was admitted to Quality from Tennova Medical Center on 10/19/2016. Upon arrival, Mrs. Jeter was recommended nursing home care for 30 days with physical, occupational and speech therapy by our medical director. With the help of these three disciplines, Maxie was able to return back to her residence at Bellwood Assisted Living in just two short weeks. “It has been a wonderful stay,” she replied when asked about her experience at Quality Center.

When she first arrived, she was very weak and was unable to walk steadily and perform everyday living activities. Today, just one day before discharge, she only requires limited assistance with bed mobility, transfers, dressing, eating, drinking and toileting. “Before I came here, I was so weak. I could barely make it to the bathroom without falling.” Regaining her mobility and physical strength has been the biggest obstacle she has overcome yet. One of the activities Mrs. Jeter enjoyed most during her stay was participating in the annual Trick-or-Treat night. This is where residents and patients pass out candy to the staff’s children.

Overall, Mrs. Jeter was very happy with her stay here at Quality Center for Rehabilitation & Healing. She is excited to have regained mobility and to be returning home to Bellwood Assisted Living.
