Stroke rehabilitation is a step-by-step programme that helps you regain strength and mobility, relearn important life skills, and adopt methods to slowly recover after a stroke. You will work with a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, including a consultant, nurse, occupational therapist, and physiotherapist, to follow a rehabilitative treatment plan tailored to your needs and goals.
Through bespoke technology combined with excellent standards of care from a consultant-led team, we ensure you recover in the fastest and most effective way possible. To find out more about rehabilitation services, you can call a member of our advisory team on 0141 300 5009.
If you can begin stroke rehabilitation as soon as possible after a stroke, it has been shown to lower the risk of further complications and improve the chances of your function being restored.
