A patient of mine had his stroke in 2009. He received inpatient and outpatient therapy early in his recovery and had to end his program due to seizures. When he came back to OT this year, he recounted how little he could do for himself before therapy, and how he learned to take care of himself with the help of his occupational therapists. He enjoys taking the bus and going to the mall. He came back to OT to enhance his life further by getting back into cooking.
