Specialized expertise, coordinated teamwork and a personalized approach to supporting stroke survivors in their communities.
Innovative problem solving and help implementing solutions
Stroke survivors and their families often feel overwhelmed trying to figure out how to make the home environment safe, do activities together, get to appointments, practice exercises, communicate well and cope with strong emotions.
Our team members work closely with them to come up with practical solutions to the challenges they face.
Care based on the latest stroke research
Based on research conducted in Canada and around the world, our team has special knowledge and skills to implement best practice stroke guidelines.
These guidelines map out the best ways to help stroke survivors reach their potential.
Comprehensive and intensive rehabilitation
Research tells us that people who receive intensive and specialized rehabilitation after their stroke have the greatest likelihood of improving their physical, thinking, speech and social skills.
Our program is designed to help stroke survivors, who are no longer in hospital, reach their rehabilitation goals.
Personalized coaching and education
The Community Stroke Rehabilitation Team uses a coaching approach to help each person discover their potential.
The research is clear – people recover best when they are in a stimulating, supportive environment that allows many opportunities to learn and practice.
Compassionate support for stroke survivors and their families
When a person has a stroke, it impacts other people too. Families suddenly find themselves in unfamiliar situations and taking on new roles. It is a very emotional time.
