Subright, Tennessee, resident Kenneth Webb was working with cattle when he was injured with a left tibia fracture.

 

His active lifestyle had to take a pause.

 

However, Webb is back on his feet after rehabilitation at Life Care Center of Morgan County in Wartburg, Tennessee.

 

Webb couldn’t walk, stand up or bathe himself when he arrived at the rehab and skilled nursing center on Oct. 20, 2017. He needed extensive assistance to roll over in bed, get dressed and balance while standing, as well as moderate assistance to balance while sitting.

 

Occupational therapists worked with Webb six days a week on helping him relearn his self-care, while physical therapists worked with him seven days a week on strength, balance and mobility.

 

“I got some wonderful care and therapy here,” said Webb. “I’m so happy I’m going home and doing so well.”

 

When Webb returned home on Jan. 12, 2018, he was able to take care of himself again with supervision for a few needs. He continued therapy as an outpatient at Life Care Center of Morgan County to regain even more independence and completed his program on Feb. 27.
