Stroke Rehabilitation

The Stroke Program at Baptist Health Rehabilitation Institute (BHRI) is designed for individuals who have experienced a Cerebrovascular Accident (CVA), also known as a "brain attack" or stroke. Those who have suffered a stroke may experience loss of movement (generally on one side of the body), impaired speech, difficulty swallowing, confusion, memory loss and decreased emotional control.

While each stroke patient will receive rehabilitation services specific to their individual needs, the following are among the special programs offered at BHRI:
