Deb’s Stroke Timeline
Reliving my stroke timeline was difficult and reminds me of how I needed to push myself to keep improving. It can be a tough journey — you can do it!
A New Set of Challenges
Bob had a business trip to London, and I was determined to go with him. Our caregiver came with us, and I took my wheelchair and walker. My therapists helped me practice exercises to prepare me for getting out of cabs, getting on escalators, and a lot of real-world travel tips that made it possible.
This was an attempt to connect my brain to a new exercise that took skill and focus. I surprised myself and I think my golf coach as well.
As the keynote speaker for the Golf4Life Stroke Event, I was honored and inspired to help others. This was the event I introduced my 3 P’s of Stroke Rehabilitation—Reimaged, and it was a big hit.View Booklet
Real World Therapy
Our first ever cruise, and Bob and I needed a vacation. This was a great trip, and each day provided a new type of real-world therapy. The vacation included cobblestone streets, stepping onto moving canal boats and lengthy museum walks as we traveled to the Baltic Sea with port visits every few days and three wonderful days of exploring St. Petersburg, Russia.
