Mission

The NRH stroke rehabilitation
program is designed to provide physical and cognitive
rehabilitation for the stroke patient regardless of
the cause of the stroke.

Program Features

The team members of the NRH stroke
program have developed a special focus on stroke
rehabilitation and an interest in working with older
people in need of their services, Tailored to the
stroke survivor aged 65 and older, this program
provides specialized treatment in areas such as
functional mobility, swallowing, personal care and
hygiene, cognitive/perceptual retraining,
communication, medication teaching, nutrition,
lifestyle and stroke risk management, stroke
education, social and community reentry, leisure
interest and skill development, supportive
counseling, and pastoral care, as needed

In addition to the expert
rehabilitative services provided by the stroke
rehabilitation team, specialized medical consultation
is available to the stroke patient in such
disciplines as rehabilitative neurology, neuro-opthalmology, psychology,
neuropsychology,
internal medicine/cardiology, gastroenterology,
endocrinology, and urology, among others.

Admission

Most stroke survivors are good
candidates for rehabilitation services. We recommend
that survivors, along with family members, discuss
rehabilitative options with a social worker to learn
more about what level of rehabilitative care may be
beneficial to them.
