When you or a loved one suffers a stroke, quick diagnosis and treatment are critical. The same is true for rehabilitation – the earlier you start a rehab program after a stroke, the better your chances of overcoming complications and regaining lost skills. At the UM Rehabilitation Network, we understand the complexities of stroke rehab. We partner with patients and their families to help them overcome the physical, psychological and emotional hurdles they face during recovery and get them back to doing the things they love.
Comprehensive and Compassionate Care
Individuals who experience a stroke can face a wide range of challenges related to mobility, completing daily living skills, swallowing, and language. At the UM Rehab Network, our team of specialists develops a comprehensive rehabilitation program that includes physical, occupational and speech therapy, social and cognitive retraining, and education to help patients overcome these challenges. Some of the unique programs that UM Rehab Network patients benefit from include the following:
- Aphasia conversation groups
- Balance therapy
- Community stroke exercise classes
- Stroke support groups
- Swallowing clinics
- Voice therapy
- Yoga for stroke patients
Our state-of-the-art facilities feature the most advanced rehabilitation technologies available to aid in balance and mobility training and other therapy techniques. We pride ourselves on our unique approach to care – balancing proven industry best practices for stroke rehab with the individual goals and needs of each patient. It's this balanced approach that results in the best outcomes for patients and sets the UM Rehab Network apart as a premier provider of stroke care and rehabilitation.
We're with you - every step of the way
For maximum benefit, stroke rehabilitation often begins in an inpatient setting. The UM Rehab Network provides all levels of care for stroke patients throughout every phase of their treatment and recovery, from diagnosis to treatment to rehabilitation. When the time is right, individuals who receive inpatient care within one of our facilities are seamlessly transitioned into a UM Rehab Network outpatient facility closer to home.
