Short-term Rehab Patient Makes Full Recovery After Charlene Manor Stay

Kenneth Irwin, 72, of Greenfield, MA, suffered a fall on Christmas Eve while in Paris. He sustained a left hip fracture and, following his surgery, was transferred to Franklin Medical Center. When Kenneth asked around for suggestions on “the best rehab,” he was continuously pointed toward Charlene Manor Extended Care Facility—making his decision on where to go to recover effortless.

Dates of Treatment: January 4, 2023–January 20, 2023

Course of Treatment:

• Physical Therapy
• Occupational Therapy
• Therapeutic Exercises
• Self-care Management Training
• Neuromuscular Re-education
• Gait Training Therapy


Kenneth responded well to his treatment, and, after two and a half weeks of undergoing therapy at Charlene Manor, he was able to go home to his wife and dog, Ruby. According to Kenneth, his pain is gone, and he’s almost back to doing everything he could before his surgery thanks to the help of Charlene Manor Extended Care Facility.

“I want to praise the nursing staff, PAs, therapy staff and CNAs for all their hard work. They were all truly kind and helpful. The Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy staff were incredible, encouraging and nice to work with; I got to know them all very well.” – Kenneth
