The stroke rehabilitation unit in St Mary’s is a 10 bedded unit and provides care to adults from 18 years and over. During rehabilitation the nursing team is actively involved with the day to day management of the patient, education on secondary stroke prevention, medication management and health promotion. On discharge from the unit, care continues as the team provides on-going support to the patient and their family in a nurse led post stroke follow up outpatient clinic.
Additional post discharge support is also provided through a Stroke Support Group which is held every two months. The group provides education, health promotion and support on all aspects of life following a stroke.
