Stroke rehabilitation is essential to facilitate a good recovery once your condition is deemed medically stable.
In The Rehab Studio, we provide both home rehabilitation and clinic rehabilitation to facilitate your stroke recovery.
Why Home Rehabilitation with us?
Every stroke is unique but strokes tend to affect people in some common ways. In most of the time, their ability to move about. With The Rehab Studio, our physiotherapists will visit your house or any of your choice of location (example: assisted home) to conduct your rehabilitation sessions, so that you don't have to worry about travelling down to our clinic.
Hospital is a specifically designed facilities with many trained professionally to care for those who are sick and facilitate their recovery. However, your house and your care giver(s) are not. For your first few home physiotherapy sessions, our experienced physiotherapists will conduct a home assessment and care giver training sessions in your living environment.
Home assessment is aimed to identify the potential risk factors that might hinder your recovery or increase your fall risk, followed by recommendation to either modify them or adapt to them.
Care giver training done in your living environment also add confident to yourself, as well as your care giver while caring for your daily living.
The recovery potential of a stroke patient is largely depends on his/her exercise routine and exercise intensity. Rehabilitation intensity of once or twice a week is not ideal for maximum recovery, and we always aim to have as much as possible.
With home physiotherapy session, our physiotherapists will design effective personalized exercises that can be done at in your living environment with the use of your furniture and tools at home. In addition, these exercises will also be taught to your care giver(s), so that they can also practice with you outside of your physiotherapy sessions.
Different from home exercises, home integration is the application of home exercises. Home integration aims translate your improvement to functional and meaningful activities in you daily living.
Home Integration aims to practice daily living tasks with the stroke survivors, for example: getting up from the bed, walking to the toilet, making a simple breakfast, simple gardening, and so on.
