Barbara Hewitt, 71, came to the Gardens at Stroud after sustaining a fall which resulted in a fractured right hip and requiring a total hip replacement. Barbara had previously worked in this facility as a hair dresser and requested to come to The Gardens of Stroud for her therapy.
In just 2 weeks, Barbara was ready to return to her Assisted Living Facility with her independence! She learned how to use the long handled adaptive equipment in order to dress herself independently while maintaining her total hip precautions.
The newest additions to her family were her rolling walker that she required to ambulate safely, and her raised toilet sit to maintain hip precautions, until her hip could heal completely.
Barbara was just a pleasure to work with during therapy! She was very complimentary of the rehab staff and stated she had an overall awesome experience! She was reassured that she made the right decision and wouldn’t hesitate to come back to The Gardens of Stroud again!
