Mrs. Vidhya aged 64 years,was admitted to Akanksha Assisted living centre in the end of May 2017 with the diagnosis of stroke on the left-side of her brain, which caused weakness on the right-side of her body. She was unable to walk, to talk, or to handle any of her personal care.
Once admitted, she was under the care of doctor, nurses, attendant, physiotherapists, speech therapists as well as psychologist. Within a month, there was passive mobilization of upper and lower extremities on her right-side and significant improvement in muscle power. Today, she is at a point where she can stand up and walk with support.
Speech Therapists visit her once in a week for a 30 minute session and with consistent practice of her own she has made a remarkable progress in the clarity of her speech. Her interest in reading has helped to build on her speech, giving her more confidence and allowing her to take the risks necessary to make these gains.
