Mr. Volpini contracted a severe case of COVID-19 and spent 80 days at the Richmond University Hospital fighting the virus. When he was discharged and admitted to Richmond Center, he was extremely weak, unable to walk or even grip items in his hand.
Recognizing the challenge ahead for Mr. Volpini, the medical staff, therapists, diet and recreational specialists designed a comprehensive program for him with the goal of nursing him back to health and gradually increasing his strength. His progress was monitored daily and changes to the plan implemented as needed. The ultimate goal of getting him back home and on his own was achieved after 12 weeks.
“I feel a 100% better. They call me the ‘miracle patient,’ and thanks to the team at Richmond Center, it’s true!”
