Stroke: Post-stroke Care

Rehabilitation is an important step to reduce complications after a stroke. Find out what resources are available for stroke survivors and their families.

Rehabilitation After a Stroke

Stroke rehabilitation benefits most patients after a stroke; it starts soon after a stroke occurs. You and your family members should be actively involved in the rehabilitation process.

Rehabilitation aims to:
Improve your ability to perform usual functions
Reduce complications after a stroke

Where Do I Go for Stroke Rehabilitation?

There are two general pathways for post-stroke care.

Outpatient Rehabilitation

You return home from the hospital and go to a rehab centre a few times a week for therapy.

Inpatient Rehabilitation Centre

You are transferred to a specialised rehabilitation unit or community hospital with daily therapy sessions for continued inpatient stay and ongoing medical and nursing care.

Where to Get More Help After Stroke?

We acknowledge that it is not an easy journey for a stroke survivor or a carer of a stroke survivor. These are some available resources you can refer to. Alternatively, you may approach a medical social worker in the hospital or polyclinic for more information.
