Stroke Rehabilitation

After treatment for a stroke, you may find some activities of daily life are difficult. We have resources throughout the region available to help you overcome the lingering effects of a stroke. Your doctor will refer you to the facility that can best meet your needs.

Patients and families form the core of any stroke rehabilitation program. Patients may benefit from inpatient care or outpatient therapy, depending on their needs. Rehabilitation programs take a team approach to care, which includes various therapists, case managers, psychologists, nurses and other health professionals. The teams work with patients and their families to set goals and regain function.

The Rehabilitation Center at Vidant Medical Center also has an accredited stroke rehabilitation program. After leaving the Rehabilitation Center, staff will monitor patients through the stroke follow-up clinic for months. And patients are encouraged to attend stroke support group meetings.
