Alabama nursing home resident’s story told to a national audience
An Alabama nursing home resident’s story of healing and a renewed sense of purpose was the featured video at the American Health Care Association’s 69th Annual Convention in San Diego, California.
The video features Sylvia Holland, a resident of Woodhaven Manor in Demopolis. In the video Holland and two of her children explain how her health declined while she was living by herself. Eventually she moved to the nursing home and the family was not hopeful for her future. Once at Woodhaven Manor, the physician and nurses diagnosed Holland as having a sodium deficiency. The prescribed treatments restored her health and motivated her to give back to others.
