Stroke rehabilitation Care Services
Stroke causes significant impairment in language, cognition motor, and sensory skills leading to serious long term disability. Recovery from stroke can be a lengthy process that requires patient's hard work and commitment.
Stroke rehabilitation is a progressive dynamic, goal oriented process aimed at enabling a person with impairment to reach their optimal physical, cognitive, emotional, communicative and functional level.
Stroke rehabilitation should commence at the same time as actual medical management
- Achieve maximum level of functional independence
- Facilitate neurological recovery
- Minimize disability
- Successfully reintegrate back into home, family and community
- Re-establish a meaningful and gratifying life
- Exercise and other treatments to facilitate recovery and reduce impairment of limbs
- Functional training to compensate for residual impairments
- Use of assistive devices such as braces or wheelchairs, to substitute for lost function
Long term goal of rehabilitation is to help improve the stroke survivor's physical and cognitive functions to relearn the skills they have lost, and to ultimately improve their overall quality of life so that they can become as independent as possible.
Types of stroke rehabilitation
Physical therapy: Focuses of strengthening motor skills Cognitive therapy: This therapy is used for communication disorder caused by stroke damage in the brain.
