A Typical Day in the Inpatient Stroke Program

During your inpatient stay with Mary Free Bed's Inpatient Stroke Program, you’ll have a daily schedule centered on your goals and needs. You’ll participate in therapies to make you stronger and increase mobility; and train on equipment to enhance your independence and provide you the ability to complete tasks easier and more efficiently.

Throughout the day, you and your family members receive education focused on how your stroke will affect your body function. You and your family also learn ways to cope with the changes and prepare for the challenges that lie ahead.

A typical day for you in the Inpatient Stroke Program may look something like this:


A rehabilitation nurse wakes you, assesses your medical status, and distributes medications. Your doctor checks in to manage all your medical needs and monitor your rehabilitation progress.

Therapy begins in your room with self-care activities, which may include light hygiene, a shower, dressing, and toileting. Therapy continues in the rehab gym and concentrates on mobility, strengthening, and functional home management activities.


After a lunch break, you’ll continue to work with your therapists on specific rehabilitation goals.


Following dinner, spend your evening relaxing, visiting with family, or participating in evening activities. Pet visitation is also available.

Rest Breaks

Rest breaks are incorporated into your schedule, as needed.
