Makhan Singh

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. At least 3.6 million people in the U.S. sustain a brain injury each year.

Makhan’s experience at NCRH recovering from a brain injury was “nothing but great!”

Before his brain injury, Makhan Singh enjoyed retired living in Denver, Colorado. He relished the time spent with his wife of 45 years, his boys, and four grandchildren. In addition, Makhan loves his annual vacation to India, where he grew up.

Makhan’s life changed when he fell one day, accidentally hitting his head on a wall. The impact caused Makhan to suffer a subdural hematoma. He was hospitalized and required a craniotomy due to the injury.

For his recovery, Makhan chose Northern Colorado Rehabilitation Hospital. His case manager and physician at the acute care hospital both recommended NCRH.

“My time at NCRH has been nothing but great,” Makhan stated. “Everyone has been so nice, and I have no complaints!”

Makhan looks forward to returning home to his family and can’t wait to spend time with his grandchildren.
