• Recovering from a stroke can be one of the greatest challenges a person will ever face. However, research shows that an early and specialized stroke rehabilitation plan of care can optimize an individual’s physical and cognitive recovery, ultimately enhancing quality of life.

    Studies also indicate that where a stroke survivor goes for treatment can make all the difference in his or her recovery. Ochsner Rehab delivers a comprehensive program of medical, nursing, and therapy care to address the needs of each stroke patient successfully.

    This goal-directed approach enables patients to:

    • Restore physical function and enhance the skills needed to perform daily activities
    • Build strength, improve balance and regain mobility
    • Improve speech and swallowing
    • Develop new cognitive and behavioral strategies to compensate for any deficits

    Our Stroke Survivors Network is here to help you on your rehabilitation journey. The group meets the third Wednesday of every month. See our flyer for more information.
