Mary Nicholson, Founder of Healings in Motion, was a successful businesswoman. After suffering a life-altering stroke, her biggest venture became the reclamation of her life.
Her journey of change began with a broken heart, after the devastating loss of her newlywed husband to Pancreatic Cancer. Her mourning was so severe and painful that Mary was hospitalized twice. She could not believe that the love that swept her off her feet was now gone.
While grieving, Mary had a brain aneurysm and was rushed to the hospital. While on the operating table, she then suffered an ischemic stroke, grand mal seizure and a frozen shoulder.
Her injuries left her without the ability to drive, walk or even make a complete sentence. But Mary knew that her body, mind and soul were her #1 business and priority.
With this focus, she worked relentlessly to gain back her strength and engaged with organizations that worked with others with disabilities. This led to her to coordinate and sponsor the 1st Central Valley Learning Disability Fair. The success of this event, her love of helping others and bringing people together led Mary to establish Healings in Motion.
As a Post Discharge Solution Provider, our goal is to provide innovative and high-quality services that fill the critical missing link, vital to the long term recovery of chronic ailments.
Healings In Motion focuses on improving stroke and brain injury care, addressing the disconnect that often takes place at discharge. Hospitals are not always set up to manage post discharge care.
The patient discharge process hands off the survivors to no entity with a game plan for continuous systematic recovery, even though the recovery process is just beginning. Such a disconnect makes the care process incomplete and leaves the steps that follow to caregivers.
