Determination and teamwork are two of the main ingredients to a successful recovery post stroke. Mr. M is a great example of this. When he first arrived to HealthSouth Mr. M explained to us that he was confident in his ability to do what needed to be done.
He was pleased to see how his girlfriend was welcomed into the facility and the gym with open arms and even encouraged to participate in his therapy. This gave him added strength and confidence to bolster his recovery. With this newfound confidence Mr. M was able to focus on reaching his goal of returning home and participating in the activities that were meaningful to him.
Mr. M was one of the kind to say the least. Whether it was his head-to-toe matching attire or his determination to get back to barbequing, Mr. M brought a smile to the face of everyone who worked with him.
Yet nothing brought a bigger smile on his face or ours than the day he was able to walk out the front door under his own power and return home.
