Success Story: Wilma Penix

October 5, 2021

Boyd Nursing & Rehabilitation is proud to recognize Wilma Penix’s Success Story.

Wilma came to Boyd Nursing at the end of September for a short rehab stay to regain her strength and independence. After a hospital stay for the progression of her kidney disease and coronary artery disease, Mrs. Penix was unable to care for herself safely at home. She demonstrated strength deficits and balance concerns, leading to an increased risk of falls. During her stay, she worked hard in physical and occupational therapy and was always smiling and laughing throughout her treatments.

Mrs. Wilma was able to regain her strength and her ability to ambulate more than 200ft using her case. She was ecstatic to be able to discharge home, with the help of her son! Congratulations, Mrs. Wilma, we are so excited to have been part of your success!
