Injured Giants fan Bryan Stow has been transferred to independence rehab center

 Family of a San Francisco Giants fan beaten nearly to death outside Dodger Stadium says he's been moved to a new rehab facility because he no longer needs constant medical care. 

Injured Giants fan Bryan Stow has been transferred out of the medical facility where he was being treated and into a center that is designed to aggressively help him learn how to gain as much independence as possible.

Bryan Stow's family said in a weekend blog post that the former paramedic was moved Thursday to undergo aggressive therapy to help him become more independent. He now shares an apartment with two other patients, and they have full-time assistance.

The 43-year-old also recently had foot surgery and is learning how to move to and from his chair, dress himself and make his own meals. 

Stow had been undergoing rehab at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center since October.
The improvements come nearly a year after the attack that left him in a coma.

The two men accused of beating him are still awaiting trial.
