Rehabilitation helps stroke survivors relearn skills that are lost when part of the brain is damaged. For example, these skills can include coordinating leg movements in order to walk, individuals may need to learn how to bathe and dress using only one hand, or how to communicate effectively when their ability to use language has been compromised.
No one is ever prepared for the reality of a stroke and its consequences. Stroke (ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke) doesn’t just happen to the survivor; it affects a whole family. Paralysis, shoulder pain, difficulty walking, balance problems, stiff arms, spasticity are a few issues to start with. While it is normal to feel anxious, helpless and depressed, it is important to understand that every stroke is different & every recovery is unique. Stroke recoveries are full of milestones, some are small ones like lifting your foot up, others are huge, like walking for the first time post-stroke.
