Marco Andiolo never thought a leisurely Fri­day afternoon stroll in the mall would save his life. The 56-year old Italian expat was shopping in Al Wahda Mall when a stroke awareness stand caught his eye. The awareness campaign was run by Amana Healthcare—a specialized provider of inpa­tient rehabilitation, long-term and home healthcare services— to educate the public about the prevention, detection and re­habilitation of stroke on Stroke Awareness Day, October 29th. Nurses were running through the risk factors for a stroke, the preventative measures to follow, how to recognize the symptoms, and monitoring blood pressure of interested volunteers.

“I was shocked when my blood pressure indicated an alarmingly high reading of 191/118,” Marco recalls. “The Amana Healthcare physician at the counter suggested I walk around the mall for one hour and come back to check my blood pressure again. After doing so, it was still high at 182/126.”

It was late at night in Jan­uary. Butti Farhan Juma Alshamsi was driving home alone on the fast lane from Ajman to Sharjah, when a car sped behind him and flashed him to change lanes. Flustered, the 21 year old Emirati tried to maneuver to the right, when instead the car overtook him from the right side, sped to the front of Butti’s car, and slammed on the brakes.

To avoid rear-ending the car or moving on another vehicle on his right, Butti swerved left towards the sidewalk. The car rolled and he lost consciousness in a near-fatal accident. His mother was on speakerphone the entire time.

At the simple mention of work, Carina Botes’s eyes light up.

Growing up in South Africa as the daughter of a nurse, Carina was always confident that she wanted to be in the healthcare industry and had a special passion for rehabilitation. However, it wasn’t until Carina was at the young age of sixteen, when her cousin visited from the United Kingdom after completing his studies in physiotherapy, that her calling was triggered.

Years later, Carina has successfully accomplished her goal. She spends her days working as a physiotherapist at Amana Healthcare, a specialized provider of long-term acute care, post-acute rehabilitation, transitional care and home care services. Carina currently looks after seven patients: four pediatric and one adult in long term care; and two adults in post-acute rehabilitation who are regaining their ability to walk, speak, and eat on their own after suffering a stroke and spinal cord injury respectively.
