Brenda’s Progress #5

Hi Everyone
Things seem to be moving fast at the moment.

Brenda was transferred to the Transitional Care Unit (TCU) at St John of Gods yesterday. This unit helps patients regain life skills such as dressing, showering and just being able to serve yourself a prepared meal etc.

Brenda’s day starts with breakfast in the dinning room. A nurse will walk with her to the dinning room where she will get a tray-mobile and go to the bain-marie to get her breakfast without further assistance.
After breakfast it is a shower with assistance at the moment. Then dress herself in day clothes. She can rest on her bed till morning tea when it is back over to the dinning room. Back to her room then its Lunch about 12:30. The staff pop in and out as do the Occupational Therapist, Doctors etc.
Before afternoon tea all the patients gather in the dinning room for some exercises with the Physiotherapist. After that it is back for a rest before dinner then into her sleep wear and a relaxing night.

I’m exhausted just typing up her schedule so she must be exhausted at the end of the day.

Brenda’s Doctor today asked if she was looking forward to going home and her answer was a definite YES.
Brenda will be spending at least a week in this unit possibly two but at the end she will be coming home. Before she can come home the Occupational Therapist will come home with her and check out if there is anything required to be done at home.

Thanks for your prayers.

Love Steve
