Stroke Rehabilitation is defined by Heart and Stroke, as “a progressive, dynamic, goal orientated process aimed at enabling a person with impairment to reach their optimal physical, cognitive, emotional, communicative, social and functional activity level”. Rehabilitation provides an important avenue for patients to improve functional and neurological recovery, which often begins soon after the stroke occurs, once the patient is medically stable and can identify goals for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation setting and duration depends on several factors like stroke severity and functional status, rehabilitation goals, patient support system and access to services.
