Due to intensive rehabilitation therapy, Mr Tanner has made good progress. However, he is still having some troubling pain in the right shoulder and difficulties in using his right hand. Consequently, there are a number of tasks that he still finds difficult to complete without help. These include doing up buttons, holding heavy items and cutting up meals. There are a number of other tasks that he is learning to do left-handed, such as brushing his teeth and using the kettle. The dentist will keep a close eye on dental hygiene to ensure that Mr Tanner takes well to left-handed brushing!
I am confident that with Mrs Tannerís help, Mr Tanner will be able to safely remain at home at the end of rehabilitation. He is largely independent and only requires assistance with small tasks.
