Stroke/Young Stroke

Northeast Rehab's Stroke Recovery program

Northeast Rehab's Stroke Recovery program is structured to provide comprehensive acute inpatient rehabilitation services and medical management to meet the needs of individuals who have had a stroke and their families. We also specialize in caring for the young adult who has had a stroke, focusing on patients under 64 years of age.

Northeast Rehab believes that the patient and family are the central focus of the assigned team of professionals. The goal is to maximize recovery and assist in the re-entry to the community. This is done in a warm and friendly atmosphere which encourages full patient and family participation.
