Jeromy’s Story

Posted on: March 8th, 2013 by CORE Health Care Admin No Comments

As a young man, Jeromy loved tinkering with cars and spending time with his friends and children.

But the life Jeromy was leading took an almost fatal turn after a car accident in his home town of Texarkana left him with a decompressed skull fracture.

Jeromy spent almost two years mostly immobile. Then his mom heard about CORE Health Care and received state funding.

Jeromy’s care at CORE included simultaneous speech pathology, cognitive therapy, physical therapy and occupational therapy, individually and in groups.

Jeromy has gone from being bed ridden to being able to sit up on his own; from being tube fed to eating by himself. Despite a blind right eye, he’s learned to navigate on a scooter. While his brain was severely injured, he is able to build a relationship with his daughter and is slowly gaining independence.

Jeromy, we’re so proud of you and wish you much success as you continue to recover!
