Throughout his stay, Anish and his family experienced exceptional care and support from the staff. Despite the challenges, Anish's positive attitude, determination and unwavering support of his family and UC Health team played a significant role in his remarkable recovery.
“The staff give life back to the people who are there. I cannot thank each one of them enough for making it easy for us. There’s constant care—every time you come out of the room, there is a doctor or a nurse there,” Kalpana said about her experience with her son at UC Health.
Anish continually expresses his gratitude for the compassionate care he received at Daniel Drake Center during his rehabilitation process. He emphasizes the kindness of the medical professionals, nurses, therapists and even the cleaning staff who went above and beyond to ensure his well-being.
“I remember pretty much everything when I was at Drake, and the care was amazing. They would come every day to give me activities to help me get back to where I was before my accident. I had the determination to go home quickly, and I did,” Anish said.
Anish's recovery is a testament to the importance of quick medical intervention and exceptional providers—something that only UC Health can provide. At UC Health, we believe that academic medicine has the power to change the lives of our patients and reimagine recovery possibilities – and Anish embodies what can happen when a collaborative team of expert specialists works together.
“It was the timely service and the decisions made at the time. Otherwise, we do not know where we would be right now. He is so thankful for everybody,” his mom said.
Looking toward the future, Anish is continuing his college education, running his small business and inspiring others through his journey of recovery and resilience. He shares his message of appreciating life, following one's passions and making the most out of every opportunity.
“Life is pretty much what it would have been if it didn't happen at all,” Anish said with a smile. “I'm not really experiencing any changes—except that they don’t let me go for rides in the park anymore.”
