Stroke rehabilitation

Stroke rehabilitation is training and therapy that helps a person recover, prevent problems, regain function, and learn new ways of doing daily activities. The focus of your rehab will depend on how the stroke has affected your ability to do the things you want and need to do.

A rehab team that includes doctors and nurses and physical, occupational, speech, and recreational therapists helps the person to resume activities of daily living, such as eating, bathing, and dressing. Some people may need help learning how to walk again, communicate, and overcome disabilities from the stroke.

A psychologist can provide counseling to help the person or family members adjust and cope after a stroke. Counselors may use interviews and tests to identify and understand where the person is having trouble with thinking or memory.
