After a stroke, Mike wanted to return to his life and activities he enjoyed. However, walking and even performing basic tasks were challenging. He was admitted to our Libertyville hospital so he could receive the intensive therapy and care he required to regain his independence, and ultimately, return to the golf course. With that in mind, his care team took his therapy outdoors, so he could practice walking on the grass and balancing on different surfaces.

“They cared for as me an individual," he recalled of his stay with us. "They have very talented and creative therapists who are willing to modify their care plan to meet the needs of the patient.”

Mike successfully discharged home able to care for himself again. He's also excited to be returning to the golf course soon. Congratulations, Mike!

Kara and Gordon Bauer are a remarkable couple. In 2022, Kara had a sudden, severe headache. Rushed to the emergency room by Gordon, Kara was diagnosed with a ruptured brain aneurysm. After multiple surgeries, Kara received rehabilitation at Encompass Health. She progressed remarkably during her stay.

Fast-forward to this year, and Gordon now faces his own health challenges. A planned surgery led to life-threatening complications, including a heart attack, emergency surgeries and being placed on a heart/lung bypass machine. When he arrived at Encompass Health for his rehabilitation, his condition limited his mobility. However, with the dedicated support of his skilled team, he steadily regained strength, eventually achieving a significant milestone of walking 75 feet with a walker. He was able to discharge home to his loving wife!

We are privileged to have cared for Kara and Gordon, and wish them continued success in their ongoing recovery. Learn more about how your care team at Encompass Health will help you reach your recovery goals after an illness or injury: https://ehc.rehab/3J0YGJi

More than two decades ago, at the age of 17, Terrence Tubbs was in a car accident that left him paralyzed. Since then, he had adjusted to living independently at home until he experienced a sudden rise in blood pressure known as autonomic dysreflexia (AD). He had seizure-like symptoms that led to a heart attack. After his condition was stabilized at the hospital, Terrence was transferred to Encompass Health. He was very weak and needed assistance with everyday activities and all mobility.

His spinal cord injury team at our hospital educated Terrence on ways to prevent another AD episode as well as using proper body mechanics. His team also assisted Terrence with wheelchair adjustments to help improve long-term mobility. Terrence discharged from our rehabilitation hospital fully independent once again.

Terrence is now a full-time college student, pursuing his dream of becoming a music producer. Learn more about how our rehabilitation hospitals and expert clinicians can help you return to what matters most after an illness or injury: https://ehc.rehab/49mdwEG
