Stroke Recovery

RWJBarnabas Health offers a home care program specifically for patients recovering from a stroke. We recognize that coping with the effects of a stroke can be overwhelming for everyone involved. Many stroke survivors are faced with the reality that they must change they way they live to accommodate skills that were lost as a result of their illness. The Barnabas Health Home Care Services Stroke Recovery program offers individual’s personalized care in the place where they are most comfortable – their own home.

Stroke Recovery Program features:

  1. Individualized rehabilitation
  2. Strength and endurance building
  3. Focus on regaining and/or improving communication skills
  4. Maximization of patient and family confidence

The outlook for stroke patients today is more hopeful than ever due to advances in both stroke treatment and rehabilitation. Stroke rehabilitation works best when the patient, family, and rehabilitation staff works together as a team. Family members must learn about impairments and disabilities caused by the stroke and how to help the patient achieve optimal function again.

The goal of stroke rehabilitation is to help the patient return to the highest level of function and independence possible, while improving the overall quality of life – physically, emotionally, and socially. Rehabilitation is designed to meet each person's specific needs; therefore, each program is different. Our stroke recovery program services are tailored to your individual needs and circumatances, as well as your doctor's recomendations and guidelines. Our program may include physical and occupational therapy, speech therapy, nursing services, and help with every day activities.
