Stroke Rehab Program

The goal of our Stroke Rehab program is to partner with stroke survivors and families to get you back to day-to-day activities, and help you achieve a maximum level of independence and community function.

About our program

The Inpatient Stroke, Cerebral Vascular Accident (CVA) program at Memorial Medical Center is an interdisciplinary, intensive treatment program after a stroke. In order to address the complex and multiple life changes brought about by stroke, we have designed an intensive treatment program that focuses both on the patient and the family.

What to expect

In the early phase of recovery, our focus is also on helping the family to understand the changes brought about by the stroke and how to help. In this way, inpatient rehabilitation serves as the foundation which, hopefully, will allow you to return home with family as soon as appropriate.

Improvements following stroke usually are quick at first. After leaving the hospital and inpatient rehabilitation, most patients will need additional outpatient therapy or home therapy for the best possible recovery. It may take many months.

Memorial Medical Center provides outpatient rehabilitation services and works in cooperation with the Visiting Nurse Association of Central Illinois to make home therapy services available. We can also coordinate with other facilities which may be closer to home, and with appropriate state agencies to help you and your family receive the services you need.
