Stroke

  • 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. Penn State Hershey Rehabilitation Hospital delivers a comprehensive program of medical, nursing, and therapy care to address the needs of each stroke patient successfully.

    • 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

    As required by Joint Commission and CARF, we collect, track and analyze data for our stroke program to allow for continued performance improvement and program development. If you have questions or want to know more, please speak to our member of our staff.
