Frontiers of Care: Young, Fit and Life After a Stroke
Play • 28 min

Since her early teens, strange feelings of dizziness and nausea would occasionally overcome Kim Taylor. Otherwise healthy and active, she thought it was nothing serious. A chance phone call to discuss a sports-related injury led her to a diagnosis, but that was just the beginning of her medical troubles. Just as she was getting ready to graduate university and start her professional career, she found herself unexpectedly receiving care at Bridgepoint Active Healthcare and relearning basics like how to walk and talk.
