After a fractured femur and hip surgery, Delores Braun came to Life Care Center of Hendersonville, North Carolina, for rehabilitation.

When she arrived on Feb. 13, 2016, Braun could only walk 40 feet with moderate assistance and a rolling walker, and she needed help to get from her bed to the wheelchair. She was wobbly on her feet, and she needed maximum assistance with daily self-care tasks like getting dressed.
