Stroke rehabilitation will help you relearn skills that were lost when your brain was damaged by your stroke. The functional physical skills we address may include, but are not limited to:
- self care
- use of weakened extremities
- general skills needed to maximize independence
Functional cognitive and communicative retraining is another important area we will help you with as you recover. Our goal is for you to resume your prior life roles to the greatest degree possible while increasing your quality of life and reintegrating you into life outside of the hospital. We accomplish this through carefully-directed practice and training for you and your family and caregivers.
Stroke recovery is a life-long process, and each person’s path to recovery is different. To what degree you recover and how long it takes depends on factors like the type, location, and severity of your stroke.
At Barrow, your rehabilitation process starts in our state-of-the-art neurological acute care area. From there, you will progress to inpatient neurorehabilitation in our acute rehabilitation center. After you are sent home, your therapy will continue at our outpatient therapy or Center for Transitional Neurorehabilitation programs.
