Mission

The intensive NRH young stroke rehabilitation program is designed to provide cognitive, physical, and behavioral rehabilitation for the younger patient-under 65 years of age who has sustained a stroke or brain hemorrhage.

Program Features

The interdisciplinary young stroke team works closely with each stroke survivor, providing specialized treatment in areas such as functional mobility, communication, patient and family education, medication teaching, cognitive/perceptual retraining, pre-driving assessment, recreation and community reentry training, and psycho-social, sexuality, or vocational counseling, as necessary.

In addition to the expert rehabilitative services provided by the young stroke rehabilitation team, specialized medical consultation is available to the young stroke patient in such disciplines as rehabilitative neurology, neuro-opthalmology, physiatry, 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.
