Due to COVID-19, Chanta has spent the last few months fighting for her life. In March, Chanta was critically ill with COVID-19, requiring intubation and extensive medical treatments. When she came to us for rehabilitation after being hospitalized for a month, she needed two people to stand and had to re-learn how to walk, talk and eat. She also needed supplemental oxygen to breathe. After spending a month at Encompass Health Braintree, Chanta is walking on her own, taking care of herself independently, talking more clearly and does not need supplemental oxygen.

Bill, a retired police officer who served the Braintree community for 34 years, had a surprise visit from his family and friends during his stay at Encompass Health Braintree. This was not just an ordinary visit—being from a family of front line workers, they decided to arrive with the Ladder Two truck from the Braintree Fire Department. Bill’s nephew, Fire Lieutenant Fred Viola, climbed up the firetruck’s ladder to see his beloved uncle. Bill was overjoyed to have a close family visit all the way from his third floor window. We would like to give a big thank you to Bill’s family and the Braintree Fire and Police Departments for helping make this wonderful moment possible.
