Family role in the neurorehabilitation process

Family role in the neurorehabilitation process

The acquired brain injury implies a crisis for the patient and for the family unit which has to be addressed by all the members. Work just with the patient during the rehabilitation process can difficult the acceptation of the situation by the family and the patient return after the discharge.

Successful case in Casaverde Mutxamel – E.R.G.

Successful case in Casaverde Mutxamel – E.R.G.

  1. Tell us your experience.

My experience with the brain damage is very soft, I felt it immediately in my left hand, it got weaker and later, it occurred the same in the left side of my face, concretely in my tongue, lips and eyes. I knew then it was related to my brain. The first thing I decided to do was going to my office, picking an Advanced Physics book and a philosophy book and I did some calculations so I make sure my reasoning was not being affected.

I arrived on January of 2016 to Casaverde and a month later they had to transfer me to the Hospital due to I have a lot of fever and diarrhoea. I had to stay interned in the hospital for a month after having an operation. When I came back to Casaverde, I was very weak and I had lost a lot of weight.

  1. What has Casaverde Rehabilitation Hospital provided you?

When I arrived here I couldn’t do anything by myself due to I have not enough strength I could not standing, I need help for all the activities that once I performed independently every day.

Thanks to my stance in the Rehabilitation Casaverde Hospital, at my discharge date, I am totally independent in my daily activities so I can dress myself, have a shower, getting ready by myself just like I did before the incident.

  1. What has Casaverde Rehabilitation Hospital provided you?

In the centre I have performed exercises with different professionals. For example, I did walking exercises with the physiotherapist, I did exercises to improve the facial paralysis with the speech therapist, I did attention exercises with the neuropsychologist and dressing, cleanliness and shower where I performed the different necessary movements while I told how to do them in the easiest way. Therefore, step by step, I started to achieving independency. I also performed exercises with both hands, especially with the left hand which I have affected by the brain damage.

  1. What will you miss now you have been discharged?

I have been in the centre for 6 months, I appreciate all of them because they have cured me. In spite of being discharged, I feel quite because I will be able to count with the professionals that work daily in the ambulatory clinic in Alicante if I ever need them.

  1. What would you recommend to a person in the same situation?

I would recommend them to do the same and follow my example, considering that, apart from my recuperation, I have shared moments with many friends that have improved a lot their physic state just like me.
