You have the greatest chance of regaining your abilities during the first few months after a stroke, so it’s important to start stroke rehab as soon as possible.
EvergreenHealth's stroke rehabilitation program provides the care and encouragement you need at every step in your recovery.
Our physical, speech and occupational therapists will begin working with you as soon as your condition is stabilized, because the sooner you work to regain normal function the quicker that can happen.
Should you need more close medical monitoring before being discharged, you may be transferred to the medical center’s Acute Rehabilitation Unit.
The ARU provides three hours of intense therapy daily for stroke patients.
There's also a transitional apartment that helps you practice activities of daily living in a home-like environment.
After discharge, you may continue your therapy through EvergreenHealth Rehabilitation Services, which provides coordinated physical, occupational and speech therapy in one convenient setting under the care of licensed therapists.
They will help with your goals of returning to work, school and community activities.
Your stroke rehab team will include doctors and nurses who specialize in stroke rehab, as well as rehabilitation therapists such as:
