Stroke (CVA)

Stroke Rehabilitation Program

A stroke is a serious medical emergency that leads to a lack of blood supply to an area of the brain. About 800,000 people experience a stroke each year. While a stroke's effects may vary based on its location and the amount of damage, most people who experience this emergency benefit from stroke rehabilitation to help them achieve the best possible quality of life.

At PAM Health, our Stroke Rehabilitation Program is a comprehensive service promoting the highest level of functioning possible. We help patients recover from a stroke in a caring environment where they can feel confident they are receiving skilled clinical and compassionate emotional support.

Treatment Goals at Our Stroke Rehabilitation Center

Our Stroke Rehabilitation Program helps individuals who have had a stroke relearn skills suddenly lost when part of the brain becomes damaged. Some patients experience weakness or paralysis on one side of their body. Others have difficulty speaking or swallowing. Walking, balance, and movement can also be impacted by a stroke. 

When you come to PAM Health, we address these impairments and strive to reduce them. Our goal is to help you regain your independence and improve your overall quality of life. We also protect patients from developing new medical issues due to pneumonia or injury caused by a fall.

Individuals who participate in a comprehensive stroke rehabilitation program often experience more positive recovery outcomes than those who do not. 

 

PAM's Specialized Approach to Stroke Rehabilitation

At PAM Health, we take an individualized approach to stroke rehabilitation. We provide strategies, techniques, and treatments to help patients recover. When you arrive, we provide you with an initial evaluation to assess your condition and develop a treatment plan that addresses your unique needs, such as the part of the body impaired or ability impacted by the stroke.

Depending on your situation, your personalized Stroke Rehabilitation Program may include:

 

  • Rehabilitation nursing
  • Physical therapy
  • Stroke occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Therapy administered by clinicians experienced in physical and cognitive rehabilitation
  • Psychological services focused on psychosocial adjustment
  • An interdisciplinary dysphagia (swallowing) treatment team
  • Services from our on-site pharmacy, laboratory, or radiology department
  • Nutritional management by a registered dietitian
  • Patient and family education and counseling
  • Services focused on home and community reintegration

 

The length of your inpatient Stroke Rehabilitation Program depends on the severity of your stroke-related complications. Some patients recover more quickly than others. The most important aspect of inpatient care is patiently and effectively addressing your unique needs.

Ongoing Outpatient Support

Once you complete our inpatient program, you may choose to maintain or enhance your recovery with outpatient rehab. Ongoing outpatient stroke rehabilitation helps you continue making gains over time. Some of our post-discharge services include comprehensive outpatient therapy tailored to your needs and support groups for both you and your family members.

 

Our Stroke Treatment Team

Your stroke rehabilitation team at PAM Health will include various specialists working together to ensure you get the best possible care. Depending on which parts of your body or abilities were impacted, your care team may consist of physicians, registered nurses, physical and occupational therapists, speech pathologists, and other medical professionals with expertise in stroke rehabilitation. A Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physician will oversee your program to ensure you receive consistent, high-quality care.
