I was a victim of a stroke,transfered from the urgent care hospital after 5 days for a month long rehab.
coming from a time when I was wheelchair bound, unable to speak for my self. The staff worked tirelessly to enable me to recover to the point that I was able to return home about 80% of my recovering done!
More then just the exceptional programs of physcial, occupational and speech therapy, they utilized every opportunity to help empower my to do more and more for my self - not limiting me with their own ideas of progress, not overloading me with tasks beyond my ability. Every class took me to the edge of what I was able to do.
Further, they used every task to to bring me 1 step further;~ from washing myself, to walking to classes, to actively participating with the medical team,to even socializing with others over meals, before I even had a chance to become self concious about my condition.
The Outpatient care was even more outstanding, to the point that they had me well lanched into my profession as a teacher of adult learners. They carried me through my moments of self doubt and fears at being about to return to anything close to a "normal life", interacting with others at church, work or social gatherings.
I will be forever grateful for the huge steps forward I made, to resume a quality life after I experienced my stroke.
