Margaret Adams and her husband, Robert, have built a life of which they are proud. They have four children and enjoy spending time with all their grandkids. Margaret attends church and loves taking care of her garden. A few years ago, she was diagnosed with lumbar myelopathy. This is an injury that occurs due to severe compression to the middle area of the spinal cord. Because of her condition, she couldn’t keep up with all the activities in her life.
After her lumbar surgery, Margaret’s family knew she needed to continue her recovery at a rehabilitation hospital. One of her daughters, Stacey Clay, is the unit secretary at Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Indiana. Stacey knew that RHNI would keep her mother comfortable and provide her with a positive experience. She was hesitant at first, but her loving daughter was adamant about the great services they provide.
With God and family by her side, Margaret chose to be admitted to RHNI. Each day, she thought about her family to keep herself motivated. She worked hard with the staff to achieve her recovery goals. “The therapy staff really motivated my cognitive thinking, especially Beth and Allana.”
Margaret looks forward to getting back to the activities she enjoyed most, like gardening. “The grandkids are taking care of my flowers now, and they’re still green!” She also remains motivated to take care of her health. “God has been good to me, and I want to live a long and healthy life, to see my grandkids grow up and graduate.”
