Stroke Rehabilitation Program

Each year, strokes affect millions of Americans, and can be a challenging experience for survivors and families. A person’s functional limitations after stroke can range from mild to severe. Rehabilitation is a critical part of recovery.

As part of Penn Medicine’s Comprehensive Stroke Center you have access to the most advanced resources available for the treatment of stroke 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our team of stroke rehabilitation experts partner with you to return you to your most productive, rewarding lifestyle.

Who Can Benefit From Our Inpatient Stroke Program

Strokes can have a major impact on an individual’s physical and emotional state, as well as work and personal life. Our stroke rehabilitation program provides physical, occupational, speech and recreational therapies.

Our inpatient stroke program focuses on comprehensive medical, nursing and therapy care to help patients recover from conditions such as:

  • Ischemic stroke
  • Hemorrhagic stroke
  • Transient ischemic attack (TIA)
  • Brain aneurysm
  • Arteriovenous malformation (AVM)
  • Brain stem stroke
  • Cerebral vascular attack (CVA)

What to Expect

Our care team will also educate you on ways to help prevent recurrent stroke, including how to reduce risk factors like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and physical inactivity.

Monthly support groups for current and former patients also offer a chance to share information and learn with others who face similar life challenges.
