When should stroke rehabilitation start?

Immediately

Rehab
Stroke rehab should start immediately after it's been diagnosed. Simple in bed movements is considered part of mobilization physical therapy. Speech therapy, massage, simple movements (standing, sitting, walking) are all part of physical/occupational therapy and should not be delayed as long as the patient is stable.

How long does stroke rehabilitation usually last?

It all depends on th

Stroke
It all depends on the type and severity of the stroke. In general if someone requires inpatient acute rehab we are looking at a stay from 10 days to 3 week admission(again this needs to be individualized). After this admission, patients usually require additional therapy either in the home or on an outpatient basis.

The family has a very important role for the person who is living with the effects of a stroke. In addition to the very crucial role of emotional support, family members in some situations will need to learn some of the care needed to help with the basic needs of the stroke survivor. In addition, they can encourage and follow through with the strategies and exercises formulated by the therapist.

Dr. Jay Rosenfeld answered:

Post stroke rehabilitation - will it be covered after 2 months?

Depends

Medicare
It really depends on the insurance. In the case of medicare, rehab is covered as long as there are realistically achievable goals within a prescribed period of time and there is documentation of continued improvement towards those goals. Once a patient has "plateaued" in their rehabilitation, the physical and occupational therapist are usually obligated to discontinue treatment.

Does vision rehabilitation after a stroke or brain injury work?

In some cases

Vision
It depends on the nature of the injury and specific symptoms. There are certain situations when patching one eye or using special prism glasses may be of benefit as well as other therapeutic techniques. However, it is always best to be evaluated by a specialist to best assess what makes the most clinical sense for each individual.

What could happen if a stroke patient's language rehabilitation is sabotaged?

Stroke

Stroke
You have to be more specific - sabotage? Sounds like "Goldfinger" is out to get you and only "James Bond" can help. If you mean not covered by Insurance - then this is becoming a reality with new healthcare these days. As stroke patient are regarded as not economically viable to society and hence dollars are not spent on them. Its rationed care-the new order of the day.
