Life Care Center of McMinnville helps stroke patient regain function

Ken Patocka came to Life Care Center of McMinnville, Oregon, for rehabilitation after having a stroke.

When he arrived on May 11, 2016, Patocka could not walk because of the way the stroke had weakened his left side. It had also impacted his ability to take care of himself, speak and eat. He needed two people to help him with his self-care tasks, and he could only tolerate 5 minutes of physical activity at a time.
