Success Story: Remote control

Ronnie Fuller’s life changed dramatically in 2018, when he experienced a brain injury and lost oxygen for 40 minutes.

“It’s a miracle he’s alive,” said his wife, Michelle.

But Ronnie, 48, and his family grapple with the aftermath. “He can’t write. He has trouble feeding himself. He can’t walk.”

Michelle explained that Ronnie’s brain injury was the result of a drug overdose: Medication he was taking gave him suicidal thoughts, and he acted on them.

With two children, ages 6 and 21, the injury has added undue stress on the family. Michelle is his sole caregiver since Ronnie was discharged from an inpatient brain rehab program last November. So she was thrilled to find out about our Brain Health program, where Ronnie could interact with others while relearning skills to be more self-sufficient.

When COVID-19 forced Brain Health to temporarily suspend in-person programming, Ronnie started talking our remote offerings – he participates in activities like brain games, music and reading activities Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

“It’s fun, I learn something,” Ronnie said. “I get to talk to other people.”

Michelle agreed: “The online program is great. Routine is good for him. There are a lot of different activities for him. He’s getting social interaction online. It makes me happy he’s involved.”

Home Care

Success Story: Changing a life

MCFI's Kristina Garcia had been working with Jessica Schluter for several years. Schluter suffered a brain injury after a car crash nearly killed her. Because of the injury, simple daily tasks such as washing dishes or getting dressed were difficult. That led to frustration and battles with anger management. But, when Garcia discovered something about Schluter's personality and applied it to her care, things changed remarkably.
