Comprehensive stroke rehabilitation to help regain function and independence.

Experiencing a stroke can be devastating in many ways. There can be physical and mental changes that disrupt lives and seriously impair independence. The good news is that inpatient stroke rehabilitation at Gulf Coast Health Care centers can help you or your loved one adjust to those changes and return to the highest level of independence possible following a stroke.

One key factor: the sooner you start stroke rehabilitation, the greater your chances of recovery. Indeed, studies have correlated earlier commencement of stroke rehab therapy with increased probability of regaining the capacity to walk without assistance.
