carfWhen a stroke occurs, it affects people differently. Stroke survivors may experience problems with any of the following:

  • Walking
  • Balance
  • Coordinating movements
  • Vision changes
  • Speaking
  • Understanding
  • Swallowing

Stroke survivors may not recognize common objects or know what to do with them. With a personalized rehabilitation treatment plan, our goal is to have the patient set and reach physical, mental, and emotional goals. This enables the patient to return to the community at their highest level of physical, social, and emotional well-being.
