Warren's Story

Warren had been experiencing swelling and pain in his leg and ultimately decided to have a total knee replacement. He worried about his recovery at home, and a friend recommended Tabitha Rehabilitation.

After his release from the hospital, the team at Tabitha worked with Warren and his family to assess his care and housing needs. He temporarily stayed at the Tabitha Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, where he received comprehensive inpatient therapy to kick start his recovery.

When it was time to return home, the team at Tabitha conducted an assessment to ensure that Warren’s home was safe and ready. His therapist set up a treatment plan. He was able to seamlessly transition to physical therapy three days a week and a home health care nurse visit once a week, all through Tabitha.

Warren and his wife enjoyed the security and comfort not only of the care they received, but also of the ability to remain in the comfort of their own home.
