The goal of the Stroke Rehabilitation Program is to help individuals relearn skills lost due to a stroke. The goal is to achieve the highest level of independence and improve quality of life. To help meet your recovery goals, a multidisciplinary approach is used to individualize treatment based on the unique needs of each patient. Your team may include:
Physical Therapy (PT) - Helps achieve maximal motor control and strength for walking and balance.
Occupational Therapy (OT) - Helps to relearn functional hand and arm to manage daily activities, such as bathing, dressing, writing or cooking. They can also address safety issues in your home by suggesting changes or proper home equipment, and they can help with cognitive organizational tasks.
Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) – Assesses for cognitive and communication difficulties and can help regain lost abilities in speaking, listening, writing and comprehension. It can also improve the ability to swallow.
Stroke rehabilitation is offered at the Cary Grossman Health & Wellness Center.
