Inspire Neurocare provides specialised, round-the-clock care and rehabilitation for stroke patients. On our stroke rehabilitation unit, our experienced team includes doctors, nurses, therapists, and psychologists, all skilled in stroke rehabilitation. It is for individuals who've experienced significant strokes affecting their normal functioning, typically require intensive inpatient rehabilitation. This care helps them regain lost abilities or learn new ways of performing tasks.
Outcomes depend on individual goals, injury severity, and overall health. Outcomes may include improved physical abilities, cognitive functions, speech and swallowing and emotional well-being.
At Inspire Neurocare, outcomes are measured against these goals on an ongoing basis.
Stroke rehabilitation can be a lengthy process, and its duration depends on the stroke's severity, the individual’s overall health, and their specific recovery goals. It can range from a few weeks to a year or more. Inspire's team works closely with individuals, families, and referrers to provide personalised estimates based on regular assessments.
Inspire Neurocare is committed to supporting families throughout the recovery process. Our Wellbeing and Lifestyle Coach ensures loved ones are kept informed about the patient's progress, recovery process, and plans for discharge into the community.
The referral process usually begins with a referral from social workers, the early supported discharge team, acute stroke units or the funding body, usually while the individual is in hospital. The Inspire team visit to assess the individual, creating a report detailing the rehabilitation pathway and care we can provide.
From this point, the referrer and family will review the assessment report, and if it is decided that Inspire Neurocare is the right place, the team will work with all those concerned to begin the admission process.
