Whitfield Gilbert’s Story…

I came to Island Oaks Living Center for rehabilitation after having a stroke. The rehab team was amazing. They called me their “superstar” because they loved me and that made me work really hard. I wanted them to be proud of me. After my stroke I had trouble doing the things we take for granted: talking, walking, dressing and bathing. I couldn’t use my right hand at all and that was really tough because I like to play the piano.

I wanted to walk right away but the therapists told me to be careful because my leg didn’t work very well. Talking was very hard for me too. In therapy I practiced talking and writing with my speech therapist. With my physical therapist I worked on several machines to increase my strength and coordination. We also worked in the parallel bars and walkers to get me moving again.

My occupational therapist helped me re-learn the tasks of dressing, bathing, and general self-care. I was in therapy for about three months and have done very well. I know my talking has gotten  better, and I am walking with a walker in my room and down the hallway. Oh Lord my hand has even gotten better too. I can open it and close it. I can’t play the piano yet but I am working on it.

Thanks to the wonderful therapists at Island Oaks I am able to transfer to an assisted living home where I am more independent and closer to my family. My therapists are proud of me and I am proud of myself!
