Prevention

Prevention focuses on treating an individual's underlying risk factors for stroke, such as hypertension, atrial fibrillation, or diabetes through therapies and health promotion. This is important to prevent a first or recurrent stroke.  

Hyper Acute

Hyperacute stroke care refers to the key interventions involved in the assessment, stabilization and treatment in the first hours after stroke onset. This includes all pre-hospital and initial emergency care.

Acute Care

Acute care is where the person is stabilized, diagnosis confirmed, plans are implemented to prevent complications, and when initial rehabilitation and recovery begin.

Rehab Care

Stroke rehabilitation is known to reduce disability and dependence for stroke survivors, and evidence shows that more is better!

Community and Long-term Care

Community is the centre of life, the hub from which all daily experiences extend. Achieving success for stroke survivors depends on a community of persons working together.
