Stroke Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation

What is stroke rehabilitation?

Stroke Rehabilitation is a progressive, dynamic, goal-oriented process aimed at enabling a person with impairment to reach his or her optimal physical, cognitive, emotional, communicative and/or social functional level.

Stroke rehabilitation is known to reduce disability and dependence for stroke survivors, and evidence shows that more is better. Rehabilitation activities begin early after the stroke occurs, once the stroke survivor is medically stable and can identify goals for rehabilitation and recovery.

Where does stroke rehabilitation occur?

Rehabilitation is a process not a place. It can occur in the hospital setting, outpatient setting, community or home. Where rehabilitation takes place depends on factors like severity of the stroke, the nature of rehabilitation goals and availability of services.
