I had a stroke, which debilitated the entire right side of my body. It was very scary. I wondered if I’d ever be able live a normal life again—cook, bathe or even walk on my own. The Brooklyn Center team allayed my fears: They were so welcoming and friendly, and assured me that if I worked at it, I would be able to go home again. The therapy was great, and so were the food and accommodations. It was amazing. I came to Brooklyn Center on December 6, and in less than three weeks I was discharged. They got me home in time for Christmas—the best gift of all!
