Stroke Rehabilitation

Restore Your Independence at Our Stroke Center

Recovering from a stroke is one of the biggest challenges you will ever face. Regaining independence requires determination, hard work, and a dedicated rehab team.

You may experience an array of complications during stroke recovery, including paralysis, speech and language problems, vision problems, memory loss, behavioral challenges, and depression.

Some patients may need to relearn basic skills such as hygiene and grooming, reading, writing, and social interaction. Families may also need education and support to help care for their loved ones. 

The Emory Stroke Center offers the most comprehensive rehabilitative program in the Southeast. We work with each patient individually to develop a customized rehabilitation plan.
