Dominic Delia’s Journey from Rehab to New Home

Dominic Delia went to Cedar Village Senior Living for rehab therapy and ended up finding not just a home but a whole community of support.

“Dominic’s story speaks to the comprehensive continuum of care that Cedar Village is able to provide through our partnership with CarDon & Associates,” said Mike Mobley, Administrator. “Whether it’s outpatient therapy, a short-term medical stay, or an independent or assisted living apartment home, seniors can find everything they need right here in one place.”

Dominic arrived at the community in November of last year for rehab therapy due to diabetes-related nerve damage in his lower body. He worked with physical and occupational therapists on exercises like leg lifts and bends as well as daily tasks, such as showering, putting on socks and shoes, etc. He also utilized the state-of-the-art aquatic therapy that Cedar Village has added to its diverse repertoire of care. The community’s unique, high-tech HydroWorx pools employ movable platforms and resistance jets to help residents improve their movement, and they also feature underwater cameras that allow therapists to track the residents’ progress.

By April of this year, Dominic was up and moving like normal again. But he didn’t want to say goodbye to Cedar Village.

“I decided to move to Cedar Village’s assisted living area because I knew I would be well looked after,” he said. “During rehab, all of the nurses and aides were always ready to help me at any time. They always made sure my medicine was on time and that my meals arrived warm. They were ready to answer any medical question I had or just talk to me about anything. I knew I wanted to be surrounded by that type of commitment.”

In addition to a devoted staff of caregivers, Dominic appreciates being surrounded by the beauty and entertainment throughout the Cedar Village campus.

“The community itself is gorgeous,” he said. “Clean and serene. There’s a nice, little gazebo to relax in. There are pools for therapy and fun, not to mention all the other entertainment — bingo, trivia tournaments, live music and much more.”

The community is like a small town where residents can age in place and enjoy all sorts of activities. But at the end of the day, the people at Cedar Village enrich Dominic’s life the most.

“I am very fond of all my nurses and aides as well as my therapists,” he said. “They have become my second family. I’m glad I picked Cedar Village as my place to call home.”
