Jocelyn is teaching Barbara how to get in and out of a car with our “rehabilitation car” so she will be safe when it’s time for her to go home. Barbara was with us three years ago after she had a stroke. With intensive rehabilitation, she made a great recovery. After a recent surgery, she requested to come back to our hospital, saying it was the only place she would consider going for rehabilitation. She is making great strides!

"This is my first clinical here. I'm a Northeastern physical therapy student. I really liked it off the bat—not just my own clinical instructor, but all other therapists and nurses have made me feel welcome and take teaching moments. They are not afraid to challenge but also do not put me in situations I'm not prepared for. Being a student during the pandemic, I was very nervous in the moment. But looking back on it, this is the type of experience that I should really be thankful for as it makes you appreciate how hard it could be and keeps you on your toes." - Julia, physical therapy student

Our therapy team works to incorporate our patients' passions into their therapy. After she had a stroke, professional baker Deborah Sheward came to our hospital to overcome right side weakness and balance issues. After working hard with her occupational therapist, Bailey, on her fine motor skills, she was able to beautifully decorate a cake during her therapy session.
