Nicholasville Nursing and Rehabilitation is excited to share resident Carl Dickerson’s Success Story!
Carl is a Marine Corps Veteran who was admitted to our community on May 17th following a lengthy hospital stay for abdominal surgery. He was unable to ambulate or complete activities of daily living tasks without extensive assist. He was eager to regain his independence and worked daily with Physical and Occupational Therapy to address his deficits in balance, safety awareness, endurance, and overall strength. He was so eager to regain his independence, he was noted to be completing exercises on his own in the evenings per our Care Team. He is now able to ambulate over 100 feet with his rolling walker and is completing all activity of daily living tasks without assistance. Carl is nothing short of a miracle and 3 weeks later is discharging to his own apartment in Lexington, KY. We are so proud of his hard work and wish him continued good health and independence in his new apartment. Congratulations to Carl and his Care Team on their success!
