Julia Welch, a PATH success story

Following a short term stay in the hospital, Julia Welch chose Wichita Presbyterian Manor’s PATH (Post-Acute to Home®) program for her short-term rehab stay. A major factor in her decision was that she was a current resident of the community and was familiar with the staff and the care.

When she originally decided to move to Wichita Presbyterian Manor, Julia’s decision was influenced by the fact that the community offered a full continuum of care. While she had a good experience with all of the staff throughout the duration of her stay, Julia shared that “the certified nursing aides really do a wonderful job at taking care of the residents.” Overall, her PATH stay was very favorable. She said, “The therapists are very caring and helpful.” When asked if she would recommend Wichita Presbyterian Manor to a friend or family member she happily replied, “Yes!”

The PATH program provides a place for seniors to transition from hospital to home and offers a variety of specialized services to help individuals regain functionality, and in many cases, return to their previous lifestyles. The PATH program includes services such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, pain management, cardiac recovery and wound care. It is open to the public with a doctor’s order.
