Specialist nursing and rehabilitation after neurological trauma
Strokes are a leading cause of adult disability in the UK. Also known as a 'cerebrovascular accident' or CVA, a stroke happens when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted (due to a blockage or haemorrhage), causing brain cells in the affected area to die. A serious stroke can result in paralysis on one side of the body, inability to find words or understand speech, confusion, and visual disturbances or loss of sight.
In recent years, there have been huge strides in stroke rehabilitation.
Arbury Care and Rehabilitation Centre
At the Arbury Care and Rehabilitation Centre, our person-centred approach begins with a thorough individual assessment, leading to a care pathway, developed in full consultation with everyone involved (including families and carers), to help patients regain as much independence as possible. The care plan will have the input of a multidisciplinary team which may include specialist nurses, carers, neuropsychologist, neuropsychiatrist, consultant in rehabilitation medicine, local GP, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapist, music therapist, complementary therapists and therapy assistants.
All our rooms have en-suite bathrooms and mostly look out onto beautiful South Northamptonshire hills. Indoor and outdoor therapies take place in a purpose-designed environment, including a spacious well-equipped therapy room and beautifully landscaped, accessible grounds – including a delightful sensory garden.
If you want to discuss a family member or loved one who has been affected by a stroke, or would like some advice, our clinical advisors would be more than happy to talk to you. Call us on 01327 301041 between 9am and 5pm, or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
