Loretta was admitted to MedBridge at ManorCare for intensive therapy and comprehensive skilled nursing care after a stroke.
"My therapy team at MedBridge at ManorCare Health Services - Elk Grove Village consisted of three people: Tiffany, my occupational therapist, Alann, my physical therapist and Margi, my speech therapist. These three individuals were very important to my recovery. Alann helped me to build up my strength and endurance with various activities. He also helped me feel confident with being able to walk and regain balance. Tiffany helped me practice my day-to-day activities such as cooking, bathing and transfers. In speech therapy, we worked on speech, memory and cognition which was affected by the stroke. I was frightened when I first came to the rehabilitation gym because I didn't know what to expect, but my therapists put me at ease which made me enjoy therapy. My nursing staff at ManorCare were exceptional. Roxanna, my nurse, and all of my nursing aides were great and so helpful. They were there for my every need in the beginning when I was weak and not able to do much for myself. If I ever needed rehabilitation again, ManorCare Health Services - Elk Grove Village would be the only place I would go." - Loretta
