Rehabilitation and Support


The more quickly rehabilitation begins, the greater the benefit. In fact, your doctor will probably start the rehabilitation process immediately after the stroke’s onset.

Rehabilitation takes many forms depending on your needs, and is available on an inpatient, outpatient, or at-home basis. For some, emphasis may be placed on increasing strength, coordination, and motor skills. Speech therapy, instructions on proper eating, and food preparation techniques may be appropriate for people having trouble swallowing. Because a stroke affects the entire family, special attention is focused on helping stroke sufferers relearn daily activities such as walking, dressing, or driving, with the understanding and support of family members.

A support group for stroke survivors and their caregivers meets the first Thursday of each month from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Lancaster Rehabilitation Hospital, 675 Good Drive, Lancaster. Break-out sessions and speaker presentations are offered, based upon interests of the group.
