Patient Stories


Inspired by a true story, names and details have been changed to preserve the identity of the patient and confidentiality.

Hamad, a 45 year old, was having his usual teal in the morning when suddenly he couldn’t move his arm. Immediately, he knew something wasn’t right.

Following a short stay in acute care at a local hospital, doctors performed multiple tests to confirm that Hamad had suffered a stroke.

Unable to walk on his own or continue his everyday activities, the stroke left him weakened with limited mobility.

After his stay in acute care, Hamad came to Emirates Rehab and Homecare Muscat.

Aware of the challenging road ahead, he was determined to regain his independence.

Suffering a stroke is the most traumatic experience any person can go through.

A stroke is caused when blood flow to the brain is interrupted or when blood vessels are ruptured, This causes cell death and loss of brain functionality.

Depending on which part of the brain is injured and the severity, long term effects of vary.

Emirate’s stroke program involves highly-skilled and dedicated rehab professionals that provide proper patient care, education and support.

The goal is to achieve a better quality of life, independence and accelerated recovery for the patient.

In order to help Mr. Hamad reach his goal, Emirate’s clinical team customized a rehab program focused on improving mobility and dexterity in his hand and legs.

The first time he joined us, his gait was very poor. He stood and walked with an assistive device and additionally required the support of another person.
