Jim Carpenter: Stroke rehab gave me back the words to tell my story.

Jim Carpenter's stroke left him literally speechless as well as unable to walk unassisted. "I had to learn to talk and walk all over again." He spent the next five weeks in inpatient rehab working with his team of therapists. With speech, physical and occupational therapy sessions every day, he improved rapidly, continuing to made steady progress after transitioning to outpatient therapy. "I love my therapists. They got me going, and they keep me going." Jim returned to his construction management job part time, while attending rehab sessions twice a week. "I'm not back to where I was yet, but with this team, I know I'll get there."
