  • Stroke Rehabilitation

    Every year in the United States, nearly 800,000 people suffer from a stroke, and approximately two-thirds of those people require some form of rehabilitation. At Metro Health, the goals of stroke rehabilitation are to help you become as independent as possible and attain the best possible quality of life. Rehabilitation cannot reverse the brain damage caused by a stroke – “cure” its effects – but it can substantially help you achieve the best possible long-term outcome.

    A team of therapy specialists in our Center for Restorative Care works closely with patients to help them relearn skills that were lost when part of the brain was damaged due to a stroke. Common issues may include problems with walking, speaking, swallowing, seeing or feeling. Physical therapists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and nurses work together to teach patients the skills they need to live with their disability. Our approach to rehabilitation is immediate and aggressive. Sometimes a consultation with a psychiatrist is also recommended.

    Our discharge planning team, consisting of nurse case managers and social workers, will help you and your family determine a safe plan for after release from the acute hospital setting. While some stroke survivors are discharged directly home from the hospital, others may require additional recuperation time in another inpatient setting. Additional outpatient therapy is often highly recommended.

    For many stroke survivors, rehabilitation will become an ongoing part of their lives to maintain and refine skills. Survivors may work with specialists for months or years after the initial stroke event.
