Offers client focused, in-home rehabilitation for adults with stroke after discharge from hospital.

Stroke specialists provide support with overcoming barriers, reintegration with the community, and transfer to outpatient rehabilitation services if appropriate.

Service targeted to clients who are medically stable with mild to moderate deficits requiring ongoing rehabilitation, and have circumstances which prevent them from attending available outpatient ambulatory programs.
