Caring for Our Communities - VNA of Ohio Community Report 2016


8 | VISITING NURSE ASSOCIATION OF OHIO “It was the healthcare professionals at VNA that gave me the direction to regain my life back.”

CARING COMMUNITIES 2016 | 9 Living with Lymphedema One Patient’s Story “I was a very competent business professional prior to what happened to me, and I want to go back to being that.” In October, 2015, Tom learned that he had cancer and would need to have surgery. Two months later, he had had a bad reaction to the treatment and was diagnosed with lymphedema, which is chronic swelling in the legs and arms. By May 2016, he wasn’t able to walk because of the swelling. For the most part, Tom says, he’s back to where he was before the surgery. He applauds his team of VNA of Ohio homecare professionals on working with him to get to this point. Click here for more information on Tom. Today, Tom gets up easily and walks quickly from one side of the big room to the other. Getting to this point didn’t come easily, and it didn’t come without help from homecare professionals. Tom had a team of rehabilitation professionals to help him get to this point: two physical therapists, an occupational therapist and a lymphedema therapist. “I had to give him that little push and that confidence that he could do it,” said Julie, one of Tom’s physical therapists from Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio. “Sometimes he would say ‘no I can’t do that.’ I would just say ‘try it’ and he would do it and he would realize he could do it.” Tom (middle) with two of his rehab therapists, Julie (left) and Kathy (right).
