Support for Your Recovery
It takes a comprehensive team to meet your medical, emotional and spiritual needs as you recover from a stroke. That’s why you’ll get care from a variety of experts, including neurologists, pharmacists, radiologists, registered nurses and chaplains. And you can rely on our neuroscience-certified stroke coordinator to organize all the arrangements while you’re with us.
As you continue your recovery after returning home, you may want to join a support group for people who’ve experienced a stroke and hear their stories, share this important part of your life, learn coping skills and make new friends.
