Learn About Second Chance Stroke Program

Power Up Your Knowledge About StrokeRecovery from a stroke can be challenging. But no matter where a patient is in the recovery process, or how long ago the stroke occurred, a second chance stroke program may help maximize functional ability, increase independence and improve quality of life.

Many people who have experienced a stroke in the past have been told by doctors and therapists that nothing else can be done. However, therapy and technology are continually improving, and many stroke survivors can benefit from a
second chance.

LATE PRESENTING SYMPTOMS 

CAN BE ADDRESSED

Symptoms such as difficulty walking, dizziness, problems with swallowing or sleeping at night, or weakness and spasms in the arm or leg can be addressed with rehabilitation in an inpatient setting – even if these symptoms present themselves three months, six months or years after the initial incident.

STROKE SURVIVORS COULD BENEFIT

FROM INTENSE STROKE REHABILITATION

MidAmerica Rehabilitation Hospital recommends that stroke survivors be screened by a rehabilitation specialist to make sure all potential problems are addressed. For many survivors, rehabilitation in the appropriate setting can make slight improvements that mean the difference between returning home or staying in an institution. Studies show that 60-80 percent of stroke survivors could benefit from an intense stroke rehabilitation program.
