Holistic care refers to treating each patient as an individual and providing high-quality treatment by concentrating on their specific requirements. Our goal is to develop a survey that measures patients’ physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being in order to improve client-centered rehabilitation for lower-limb amputees. We collaborated on this with a 43-year-old Hispanic man who had a medical history of insulin-dependent diabetes worsened by multiple lower-limb amputations. He lost his job and became homeless after the second amputation. The patient was admitted to the hospital after suffering from extreme depression, to the point where he was having command auditory hallucinations about killing himself. After a three-week stay in the hospital, he was released back into the community. However, due to a relapse of suicidal ideation, he was readmitted to the hospital a week later. The “Holistic Health and Wellness Survey” by Raymond W. Smith was used to engage the patient and assess and treat several aspects of his mental, spiritual, and physical health. We were able to set attainable goals for the patient in each of the health and wellbeing survey categories where he scored poorly. As he adjusted to life as a double-amputee, the patient’s general health and attitude improved significantly as a result of his client-centered therapy, which addressed his measurable health needs; and he began to take an active role in creating short- and long-term goals that he considered feasible. The potential for improving client-centered therapy in lower-limb amputees is demonstrated in this case. We believe that by implementing this health and wellbeing survey, caregivers will be able to better analyze how to deliver client-centered treatment to their patients.
