My name is Alan Robinson. I was born on February 18, 1957. I have a beautiful wife and we have been married for 41 years. We have 2 children, a son and a daughter. We also have 6 grandchildren. I was working for a company as a logistics manager and worked for the company for 25 plus years.
On January 1st I was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia and sepsis. The doctors told my wife that I was in kidney and liver failure, had developed A-fib, and both of my lungs had collapsed. I was connected to a ventilator and had machines doing almost everything for me. I couldn’t do anything for myself and was dependent on the staff and my wife being my advocate. I was transferred to different hospital, at least three from what I remember. The doctors told my wife that the possibility of my survival was slim to none and that she should start planning my funeral. So the hospital discharge me to a skilled nursing facility to find hospice care but they weren’t a right fit for me. Luckily my wife didn’t give up on me and here I am now ready to discharge home from Generations of Oakton Pavillion.
My improvement was complete 180 and that is all thanks to the wonderful staff at Generations. I am now able to walk with a walker and go up my stairs thanks to the excellent therapy department. I am so thankful for all the amazing CNAs and nurses that have helped me throughout my journey on being able to go home. The admissions process getting to this facility was a smooth transition and helpful with all the unanswered questions my wife and I had. The business office was also very helpful in filling out all the necessary applications to get further medical coverage and insurance. This facility doesn’t compare to any other SNF I was at and if anyone every asks me what facility to put their loved ones in I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
I just want to give a huge thanks to everyone at Generations. This place will be truly missed but I’m so glad to going home!Letter from Alan Robinson
