Treatment and rehabilitation

A rehabilitation programme will be devised to meet your individual needs. We will discuss with you and agree goals or targets for you to achieve. We will also help you to learn strategies and techniques to complete these.

The Stroke Team may ask you to complete some structured tasks and activities in order to provide a realistic picture of your abilities. Remember, where possible we will ask you to do as much of the task yourself. While this might make the task harder or slower to complete, it will help you with your overall rehabilitation and is an important start on your journey to recovery.

Treatment options vary as everyone is affected differently by stroke. Some patients make a rapid recovery and only need short-term hospital care. Other patients improve slowly and show potential for further recovery. We will make referrals for continuing therapy at a local treatment unit or by community rehabilitation team. In some cases unfortunately therapy input will not significantly improve function and patients will require long-term nursing care.
