Rehabilitation is one of the most important phases of stroke recovery for many stroke survivors. The effect of the stroke may mean that you need to change, relearn or redefine how you live.
WHAT IS STROKE REHABILITATION?
Stroke rehabilitation needs to be done in a very timely manner and through a structured programme in order to help you regain independence and improve your quality of life by helping you relearn skills you lost when a stroke affected part of your brain. Though it doesn’t reverse the effects of a stroke, it builds your strength capability and confidence to help you return to independent living.
The sooner you begin stroke rehab, the more likely you are to regain lost abilities and skills. Rehab can start as early as 3-5 days after you have stabilised from the stroke incident. What you do in a stroke rehab programme depends on what you need to become independent.
