After a right cerebellar stroke and cerebral aneurysm, Warren experienced balance, vision, and swallowing impairments. These impairments affected his ability to perform basic day-to-day tasks safely and independently. When looking straight ahead while walking, Warren experienced extreme dizziness. Paired with changes to his balance, Warren relied on a walker to ambulate.
Inpatient rehabilitation offered Warren an opportunity to address these impairments and regain his independence. Accordingly, he admitted to Vibra Rehabilitation Hospital of Denver for speech, occupational, and physical therapies.
Warren took some time to adjust, but once he did, he won everyone over at Vibra. He never failed to put a smile on the faces of staff and may have even cracked a smile or two as well! Warren was motivated and focused during his therapy sessions but could also make light of the challenges he faced.
By the time his final week of therapy came around, Warren could walk independently without episodes of severe dizziness. He advanced his diet and could perform day-to-day tasks without assistance.
At Vibra, we are all so proud of Warren’s progress and wish him continued success. Though we’ll miss working with him, we are always proud to see our patients reach their goals, including eating pizza again!
