Our goal is to maximize each patient’s health, skills and functional abilities in a caring environment, and return the individual to the highest level of autonomy, independence and productivity possible.
Since our opening in 1989, The Lakeland Center has helped so many individuals reach their highest level of recovery. From time to time we will share some of our favorite success stories here.
Tweny-year-old Taevin was involved in a nasty car accident. He suffered multiple facial fractures and a traumatic brain injury after being thrown from the vehicle, and relied on a ventilator for 2 months while at the hospital. Three months later, Taevin moved into the TBI Rehab Unit at The Lakeland Center to continue his recovery. When admitted to Lakeland, he still had a trach to assist with his breathing and could not talk or eat, he received his food through a feeding tube. Just months later, Taevin WALKED out the doors and went home! We are honored to share Taevin's inspiring story.
Despite everything that Taevin had been through, his big, bright smile was a daily sight in the therapy gym. Determined to get home, he spent many hours a day with the therapy team, and it wasn't long before he was talking and laughing again. Taevin was also a regular in the recreational therapy department as well. In between sessions with physical, ocupational, and speech therapy, he spent time working with fun cognitive rehab activities like playing cards, listening to music, and his favorite, playing Wii.
We are so very proud of you Taevin, and we thank you for sharing that infectious smile and attitude with us!
