Details of experience:

Ms. Silvia had been feeling a progressive pain in her right leg for many years, until she experienced a high-level pain that made her unable to walk. At this point she and her family decided to go to the closest Emergency Room. Fortunately, she lives in Deerfield Beach, and the nearest Emergency Room was in Broward Health North. As soon as she was admitted to the hospital, they scheduled her to an emergency surgery on her right hip, femur and knee. After the surgery, Ms. Silva stayed in the hospital for 10 days.

On 05/27/2023 she was admitted to The Savoy for her recovery and rehabilitation. When Ms. Silva arrived at the Savoy it was late at night, according to the nurse Doane, Ms. Silva arrived at 9:45 pm. Doane was the first person who Ms. Silvia had contact with at The Savoy community. On the following morning Ms. Silva met the nurse’s assistant Emanis. On the next Monday of Silva’s stay, she was assessed by our highly trained therapy team, and it was determined that she would benefit from physical and occupational therapy. Silva participated in therapy 5x a week for about 45 minutes a day. Her main goal was to return home, be independent and be comfortable with her home office job. Her diagnoses were osteolysis, secondary hypertension, type 2 diabetes and malignant neoplasm of unspecified site of unspecified female breast. Ms. Silva said that every singe time that she was doing therapy she was thinking of her family and having her normal life.

In June, after almost one month of her rehabilitation, Ms. Silva received the news that she is almost done with her rehabilitation, and she may be discharged in the last week of June. She is so happy because she will be able to return to her normal life. When she arrived here, she was not able to walk properly, and she needed assistance with doing all her personal hygiene, and at this present moment she just needs supervision. Ms. Silva said she can imagine herself back in the house doing all her personal duties by herself and being able to walk pain free.
