With hip replacement surgery in her future, Carol Chilko made sure to be proactive about her recovery. Speaking with her primary care physician, Carol asked for information about her options for post-surgical rehabilitation. After reviewing the options, Carol decided to admit to Bakersfield Rehabilitation Hospital (BRH) for her recovery.
Carol is a full-time caregiver to her spouse. As such, it was imperative that she safely return home to care for him as soon as possible following her surgery.
At BRH, Carol found just what she needed. “It was wonderful. It was so wonderful for me. All of the staff was wonderful,” she stated. “The room was nice. They took me down for physical and occupational therapy a couple of times per day.”
Carol is grateful for her short-term inpatient rehabilitation stay at Bakersfield Rehabilitation Hospital. Today, Carol can walk across the room without any assistive device and is back to caring for her beloved spouse.
