Stroke Rehabilitation Program Availability and Type
Highland Hospital offers an inpatient rehabilitation team that works with stroke patients beginning during the acute phase of stroke recovery. The team works with patients to ensure their early discharge to the most appropriate location, whether to home, a skilled nursing facility, or a rehabilitation facility. Our interdisciplinary team works closely with stroke patients to ensure seamless transition of care to outpatient rehabilitation services or a rehabilitation facility as required by the stroke patient’s particular situation.
Strokes, whether a first stroke or a recurrent stroke, can be prevented. In addition, those who have a stroke are at greatly increased risk for a recurrent stroke. Evidence shows that physical activity and exercise training are considered an important part of a stroke risk-reduction program (Stroke, May 2004: 35(5); 1229-39).
