When my father came to the SLC after a fall and short stay in a rehab facility, he had lost weight and was weak. He was also a fall risk (due in part to his medical condition). He is receiving daily assistance with dressing which he would not be getting if he were still living independently. I also came to realize that he wasn't necessarily preparing and eating 3 meals a day at home and had been losing weight in the months leading up to his fall. For him the SLC's meal program has helped greatly. He is back to a normal weight and just the other day his doctor noted how pleased she was with his progress over the past year. He has gotten stronger and has even improved to the point where he is able to walk without the use of the walker he was using initially. Having a gym here and attending his gym appointments regularly has not only contributed to his well-being, but is critical to managing his medical condition going forward; it has been an invaluable factor in his health improvements.
