Rehab After Stroke: One Patient’s Journey

At 72 years young, Tom Mendenhall of St. Michaels was enjoying the fifth year of his retirement from a career in business and administration. A poker game with friends at the Chesapeake Bay Yacht Club was part of Mendenhall’s weekly routine. In early April 2021, he was enjoying the game until he tried to stand and discovered that he couldn’t put any weight on his left leg. A member of the group knew the symptoms of a stroke and directed Mendenhall to smile and then to raise his arms. Fortunately, the stroke had not impacted Mendenhall’s speech or cognitive ability, but walking – even standing – was impossible. During his admission for acute care he was evaluated by physical and occupational therapists who recommended him for acute rehab. Read his story.
