Michael's Recovery Story

After a motorcycle accident, Michael was airlifted to the hospital with a broken femur, pelvic bone, ribs and wrist.  He spent two weeks in the hospital and was discharged to Heartland in West Bloomfield, Michigan for rehabilitation.

“I was non-weight bearing for three months,” Michael said.  “When my restrictions were lifted, It was time to walk. I was so filled with emotion taking my first step.  Three weeks later, I was using a walker.”

Michael was younger than the typical “nursing home” patient.  But nursing homes aren’t what they used to be. Because they function more like a free-standing rehabilitation hospitals, cases like Michael are exactly what post-hospital rehabilitation facilities are prepared to handle.

“The positive reinforcement from the staff at Heartland kept me going,” Michael said. “Their efforts have me walking today.”
