The Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital's dedicated Stroke Program offers interdisciplinary care for patients with stroke to enhance their level of functioning. The team strives to educate, rehabilitate and prepare the patient and his or her family for the transition to home.
The Stroke Program is led by a multidisciplinary team of specialized health professionals with advanced training in the medical management and therapeutic interventions for stroke treatment. Patients are housed with other stroke survivors in environments designed to maximize their functional independence.
With a focus on helping the stroke survivor regain as much function as possible to resume an active and productive life, the program provides a variety of services to help patients adapt to any limitations or loss of ability caused by a stroke. Treatment deals with the many different kinds of impairment which the stroke patient may experience – verbal, physical, emotional and social.
A Stroke Survivor and Caregiver Support Program is available the first Thursday of every month from 2:30 - 4 p.m. Please contact us at 330-841-3891 for more information.
