Schumacher might return home this summer
Michael Schumacher might soon continue his rehabilitation at home, according to the Swiss newspaper Sonntagsblick.
After six months in a coma, the seven time world champion was recently transferred from intensive care in Grenoble to a rehabilitation ward in Lausanne.
That is not far from the Schumachers' home on the shores of Lake Geneva, but Sonntagsblick claims the 45-year-old German could return home "during the course of the summer".
The report cited sources close to the Lausanne hospital.
Mark Mader, the chief doctor at a rehabilitation hospital in Basel, Switzerland, said that while home care is "difficult" for the family, "it is optimal" for patients like Schumacher.
