Stroke Early Supported Discharge

 Location: St. Mary's Hospital

In home therapy offered to stroke survivors to assist them in their recovery immediately after the event or 1 year or more post-stroke, if they continue to have challenges.

This program provides in-home therapy to stroke survivors who have been referred from hospital upon discharge. This program is intended for clients with mild to moderate deficits due to a recent stroke.

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 or more)

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.
