If someone you love has had a stroke, you may wonder what lies ahead. A stroke can cause problems with speech, vision, memory, balance, or coordination. It can leave part of the body weakened or paralyzed, among other physical problems. Your loved one may have to relearn how to walk, talk, or do daily activities.
It may help to know that rehabilitation can help people regain life skills and learn new ways to do tasks. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, post-stroke rehabilitation provides a way a person can make significant progress to overcome disabilities resulting from a stroke. A comprehensive program also addresses a person's individual goals.
Whether recovering from a hemorrhagic or ischemic event, the Stroke Program at Touro Infirmary provides patients with the information, resources, and support needed to adapt to life after stroke.
