A Case Study

Mr. R

Mr. R was once a renowned violin player for the Metropolitan Opera. He enjoyed living in his apartment by himself in New York City and performing music for all that wanted to listen. 

 

Mr. R now resides in an assisted living institution. He has had a number of health complications over the years, resulting in severe loss of mobility. Due to the severe loss of mobility to one side of his body, Mr. R has a walker.  Over the years Mr. R has consistently received messaging that limits his belief of what is possible for him. He is not fulfilled in his living arrangement. He does not like that he needs help with activities of daily living. Beyond that, he feels like his intellectual stimulation is lacking. Mr. R feels very stuck. 

 

One day after breakfast, Mr. R was daydreaming about his previous life of independence as he wandered past the presentation room and his ears perked up. He heard people talking about movement, so he decided to find a seat. He hears a speech by aneufit, discussing a program to unlock lost movement capacity, by the end of the talk he makes the decision to join aneufit. The first couple weeks of aneufit were spent getting comfortable being on the ground. Mr. R has to be manually placed on the ground and needs to lean against a padded wall to sit up. He tries very hard to move his body in different positions but it is very difficult for him. With coaching, by the end of week two, Mr. R can crawl and sit up on his own. By the end of week three, Mr. R’s confidence has increased, he takes a fall in his room and is able to use the principles of aneufit to get up on his own, report the fall and get help. By the end of week four, Mr. R has developed great awareness of his body: he can move around very comfortably on the ground and get up and down on his own. His balance has improved, his confidence has improved and his awareness of how to move efficiently has improved. He is able to safely and successfully transition from the floor to standing all on his own. aneufit gave Mr. R the ability to unlock lost movement, reducing his need for help with activities of daily living. Mr. R is feeling much better about life and the regained independence aneufit has given him.
