Beachwood Nursing Home Celebrates Another Success Story

September 14, 2020
Beachwood, Ohio - The Beachwood Pointe care team successfully rehabilitated another patient! While this happens regularly at our center, we thought this particular story was worth sharing. As you can read in her Success Story, our patient Hazel made an impact on our team. She maintained a positive outlook during her rehab stay-- even teaching her therapists to dance while she re-learned how to walk! That's pretty remarkable considering Hazel, a dance instructor, had been fighting Guillain-Barre syndrome for months.

Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare but serious autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks healthy nerve cells in the peripheral nervous system, leading to weakness, numbness, and tingling. It can eventually cause paralysis. In Hazel's case, she was dependent for all mobility, feeding, and self-care tasks.

By the end of her stay, as her body fought to conquer Guillain-Barre, Hazel was able to re-learn the tasks she needed to return home. The team was happy to do a celebratory dance with her just before she left Beachwood Pointe. Congratulations Hazel!
