Stroke Rehabilitation

Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Symptoms of stroke may include numbness, weakness often on one side, confusion, vision problems, slurred speech, trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance and loss of coordination. 

If you are admitted to a Premier Health facility with symptoms of a stroke you may receive acute care services through physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy.

Stroke rehabilitation is most effective when the patient, family, and rehabilitation staff work together as a team.

Post-acute services may include inpatient rehabilitation, comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation and outpatient single-service physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy.

An evaluation conducted by our rehabilitation coordinator, in consultation with a physiatrist must reveal, at the minimum, the following for admission to our inpatient rehabilitation unit:

  • Medical issues requiring regular physiatry management
  • Rehabilitative nursing intervention
  • Multiple therapy discipline needs
