Thank You to the Staff at Oak Knoll Healthcare Center Thank you for your care and kindness while I was there to begin recuperating from a stroke I had on October 11, 2016...Whatever your role, thank you for your patience when I had a bad day...your strength when I didn’t have any, your encouragement when I had doubts, your “pep talks” when I was discouraged and needed them most, your sense of humor to add some laughs to the day (laughter is the best and cheapest medicine). Some of these may seem like little things to you, but they make the patient feel more like a person who matters instead of just the occupant of a specific bed. I miss your unique personalities now that I’m home. Thank you. I know you were looking out for my best interests while I was at Oak Knoll from October 18 through December 28, 2016. Carolyn S.

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital-Westborough

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital on Flanders Road is among the first in the nation to offer an award-winning therapy that is helping stroke patients regain their ability to walk.

Even if your stroke occurred 10 years ago...you may walk again after Bionic Leg therapy!

The Tibion Bionic Leg is a new robotic device physical therapists use to help stroke patients recover their ability to walk.

Stroke patients who could walk cautiously only with a cane are now walking confidently without one, after Bionic Leg training.  Some who could move only with a wheelchair now walk with a cane. Most Medicare B insured patients qualify for Bionic Leg therapy.

The therapy is offered by Tibion Corp. Read the full story here.

To find out whether it might help you, call us for more information at (508) 871-2128.
