With the helpful support of Rehab America in Huntsville, Mr. Wesley successfully achieved his goal of returning home independently with full functional mobility. Battling pneumonia, kidney disease, and heart failure upon his arrival at Rehab America, Mr. Wesley faced significant challenges, including the inability to sit without assistance and struggles with weakness and poor balance.
Unfazed by these challenges, Mr. Wesley invested significant energy into regaining his previous level of function, particularly in dressing and bathing, surpassing expectations. The physical therapy sessions focused on enhancing his dynamic balance, incorporating creative challenges like standing to color his Star Wars pictures. In speech therapy, the emphasis was on sequencing, problem-solving, and safety—all of which Mr. Wesley successfully accomplished by the time he left. The collaborative efforts of Mr. Wesley and the Rehab America team in Huntsville played a crucial role in his triumphant rehabilitation journey.
