Living in the aftermath of a stroke, traumatic brain injury or other neurological condition has far-reaching impact on physical, cognitive, and emotional capabilities.

Skilled nursing care and physical rehabilitation are key to a successful recovery at home, maximizing long-term independence potential.  Early rehabilitation has been shown to enhance recovery and minimize functional disability. The length of rehabilitation depends on the severity of stroke, brain injury-related deficits, motivation, skilled care professionals and support network.

Stroke creates physical and cognitive deficits. Early rehabilitation enhances recovery and minimizes functional disability with the length of rehabilitation depending on the severity, brain injury-related deficits, motivation, skilled care professionals and support network.

Brain Injury is caused by internal and/or external factors. Internal factors include stroke, lack of oxygen, tumor, hypoxia, meningitis or encephalitis. External factors — often called traumatic brain injuries (TBI)  — are caused by penetrating objects (bullets); a fall or car crash resulting in significant head trauma; or when the brain is shaken within the skull, an injury often associated with sports or high-energy explosions.

Rehabilitative Therapy for Stroke & Brain Injury
Recovering from a stroke, traumatic brain injury or other neurological condition can be challenging physically, cognitively, and emotionally leaving survivors frustrated with the recovery process and challenged by the ability to resume their normal lives, especially seniors who may already face declining health.  
Rehabilitation can help re-establish independence and improve quality of life. Researchers have found that people who participate in a focused rehabilitation program perform exceedingly better than those who don’t have rehabilitation.
