Ms. Kirby's arrival at Rehab America Cookeville marked the beginning of a remarkable transformation. Following a stroke, she relied heavily on two staff members for basic tasks like bed mobility, transfers, and bathing. Every day was a struggle, and the simple act of sitting up in bed seemed like an impossible challenge. Her goal was to return home to her loved ones and dogs in time for her birthday.
However, through a personalized rehabilitation plan encompassing strengthening, coordination, and mobility training, Ms. Kirby's progress defied expectations. Slowly but surely, Ms. Kirby began to regain control of her life. Today, Ms. Kirby enjoys a regular diet, independence in self-care, and the ability to move around in her wheelchair with confidence.
