North Florida Rehab Patient Homeward Bound

Today, we celebrated Mr. Levi Nichols’ successful graduation from the rehabilitation program at Signature HealthCARE of North Florida.

A resident of Alabama, Mr. Nichols decided to complete his short-term rehabilitation with Signature Rehab therapists. He received 24-hour skilled nursing care while recovering from his recent and unexpected medical setback.

This is the second time Mr. Nichols has chosen us as his short term rehabilitation center. Mr. Nichols worked daily with occupational and physical therapy to increase his upper and lower body strength, balance, and safety with standing balance. He also focused on being able to perform his activities of daily living tasks independently for a safe return home.
