Recovery Following a Stroke… It’s The Extras that Count

After a stroke affects a part of one’s brain, the patient faces a daunting and challenging road to recovery.

To relearn the skills that were lost as a result, one must undergo stroke rehab that usually
involves mobility training, communication therapy, strengthening of motor skills and range of motion therapy. Rehab is usually started during the acute hospital stay, and then continues intensely in a rehabilitation facility.

A crucial factor to consider when choosing a rehab center for a loved one, aside from outstanding rehab professionals – is the environment one rehabs in. Look for a place that physically complements the rehab experience. The forward thinking approach of facilities such as The Pratt Pavilion in Glen Cove, is to create state-of-the-art space designed to bolster the emotional, psychological and physical well-being of their patients while they recuperate. They view their patients through the prism of how they lived their lives prior to their stroke, when they were active, vital people. To ensure that they are not cut off from the outside world, online access is available via WiFi, and five-star amenities ensure that the rehabilitative process is as comfortable as possible.
