Hospital happenings

Sandra was leaving church when she began losing sight in her right eye. After seeking medical care, Sandra was diagnosed with an acute stroke and was told she likely would never walk again. When Sandra arrived to Encompass Health Ocala, she required assistance with self-care tasks and mobility. Sandra was eager to gain independence, and her main goal was to walk again. Upon discharge, Sandra was able to independently walk with a walker and complete all self-care tasks on her own. Sandra was also able to walk on uneven surfaces outside. Congratulations, Sandra! We were happy to help with your journey to recovery.
