In-home therapy offered to stroke and brain injury survivors to assist them in their recovery immediately after the event or 1 year+ post-stroke, if they continue to have challenges.
Community Rehabilitation (CR) provides in-home therapy to stroke survivors who are at risk for needing increased care due to a previous stroke (1 year+). If functional decline 1 year or greater and prognosis for improvement exists with rehabilitation intervention, an individual may be considered by program (reach out for details)
In both programs, clients actively participate in setting goals for their therapy, which may continue up to 8 weeks. Stroke specialists also provide support with overcoming barriers, reintegration within the community and transfer of care to outpatient rehabilitation and/or community services for continued support.
NOTE: Medicine Hat location will also accept acquired brain injury survivors for early supported discharge from hospital similar to the ESD program for stroke noted above.
