What is a Stroke?

A stroke occurs when blood flow is disrupted to part of the brain. This leads to damage to the brain cells due to a lack of oxygen and nutrients. Depending on where in the brain the stroke occurs, strokes can result in speech difficulties, muscle weakness or paralysis, reading and writing difficulties, impaired vision or cognitive changes.

At Laura Fergusson Rehabilitation, our team is dedicated to helping stroke survivors overcome the obstacles they face following a stroke. We take a practical and functional approach and create a rehabilitation programme tailored to your needs and goals.

Residential Stroke Rehabilitation is often the most effective option for acute stroke survivors who require more intensive treatment.

This programme is 9 weeks long and includes both physical rehabilitation and education components. It’s designed to give participants a strong start both physically and emotionally towards achieving improvements in function, independence and self-management.

As this is a group programme, this service isn’t suitable for people who require one-to-one support.

Assessment
Prior to joining the programme, an initial assessment is required. This assessment covers your medical history, physical ability and your fitness/rehabilitation goals. Following this assessment, our team will develop a tailored treatment programme specific to your needs.

This programme is funded. However, places are limited and the programme runs at set times during the year (4 programmes per year).
