Playing tag with your grandkids. Driving to work in the morning. Changing into your pajamas at night. Things that came as second nature can suddenly seem challenging when you or a loved one has experienced a stroke.

Rehabilitation After Stroke at Mary Free Bed Rehabiltiation Hospital

At Mary Free Bed, our goal is to get you back to those daily moments. We want to do that as quickly and comfortably as possible. When you choose the Mary Free Bed Stroke Program, you and your family gain a knowledgeable network of support. The doctors, nurses, therapists, care managers and other specialists in Mary Free Bed’s Stroke Program work together with you and your family to overcome the challenges unique to a stroke.

Your stroke rehabilitation experience

Each day, you’ll participate in approximately three hours of combined stroke therapy, often in dedicated gyms located close to your private room in our state-of-the-art facility. Your therapy includes strength training, work on fine motor skills and learning new ways to accomplish daily living skills, such as dressing or getting into and out of your vehicle. Click to see 360-degree virtual tours of our specialized facilities.

Our goal as rehabilitation professionals is to help you regain as much independence as possible. We’ll help you find ways to successfully work around the challenges that are a result of your stroke.

When your inpatient stay is over and you become a Mary Free Bed “graduate,” you can continue receiving therapy through our outpatient program and stroke clinic services. We’ll be here to offer continued follow-up services for as long as you need us.
