Avatar n tn We continued with physical, speech and occupational therapy home visits through a private agency. Are home visits for therapy an option for you? I found that though the scheduling was erratic for these home visits, it gave us both something to work from. I don't know about your area, but there is an excellent rehab hospital in Washington DC, National Rehabilitation Hospital that is state of the art in their programs for recovery as well as neurological research.

Avatar n tn HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY...according to research, they say it has helped alot of stroke patients....Are you aware of this thearpy and do you recommend it for stroke patients...I really would like your opinion on this. Thank you!!
Avatar f tn I have been doing physical therapy and occupational therapy before I got out of the hospital in March 2010 and continued afterwards. I have also been doing strength training at the gym 3 to 4 days a week as well. The general concensus was that the stroke was brought on by my battle with terminal breast cancer for 2 years. I was declared cancer-free two weeks before the stroke occurred. I'm beginning to wonder if I can recover from this disasterous event and get my life back.
Avatar m tn She was given TPA at the hospital and miraculously it reversed right side paralysis and speech. We brought her directly home from hospital with physical therapy, occupational therapy and visiting nurse services @ home for 6 weeks. Since then she has had multiple TIAs and possibly another stroke a few days ago. As it happened during the night we are unsure but she has been significantly weaker and tired since.
Avatar f tn Did your son go through that? We are taking her home this tuesday, but we are going to continue with therapy. We hear that ACUPUNCTURE works wonders with stroke patience, so were're going to try that as soon as we get her home. Try it. The sooner the better. p.s look for an acupuncturist that specializes with the brain.
Avatar n tn Hi, Brain injured patients may receive rehabilitation that involves individually tailored treatment programs in the areas of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language therapy, physiatry, psychology, and social support. A complete physical and neurological examination is needed in each treatment program. It would be best to discuss which treatment option is best for you with your doctor for proper evaluation and management. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Medicare will pay for 21 days in the nursing home and then 80% of the cost. Is home health expensive? I know she wants to be home. I am a single man and no relatives within 175 miles.Sorry for the rambling.
Avatar n tn Our mom, Suzanne, who is 71 had a stroke on the back of her head, on the brain stem on May 23rd 2008. All of her memory and the part of her brain that makes her who she is, is all there. Thank god! Suzanne was diagnosed with a stroke 7 1/2 hours after being rushed to the emergency room. My family and I found this a bit odd since she had every symptom of having a stroke. And we all know that it is vital to get help and diagnosed as soon as possible, when a person apperes to have had a stroke.
Avatar m tn I had a stroke in October 2010. Very little therapy was done on my left arm. Now 6 months later,will I still be able to get use bak of my arm?
1821865 tn?1317522031 I started providing such therapy to a 99 year old woman with partial left sided-paralysis secondary to a stroke, and it disappeared after two years. She is now 108 years old. The MRSA infection is far more serious. I am up on this because I have one now. I picked mine up in a hospital, and the antibiotics are expensive and not too effective. Surgery was necessary to remove my infection. You need a consult with an infectious control specialist at a teaching hospital..Do this immediately.
Avatar f tn My father was 80 when he had his stroke and we were told that he would never be able to come home. But with a lot of fighting for more therapy he has been home with my mother caring for him along with a little bit of nursing help. He still cannot walk, but is able to transfer to wheelchair, toilet with just a little help. His memory is not very good and sometimes he still talks crazy, but he has come alot farther than anyone had ever hoped.

Avatar n tn my sister is in a nursing home after becoming partially paralized on her right side doctors had a MRI done and said it was not a stroke yet she needs physical therapy like a stroke victim they dont know what it is
Avatar n tn As for placement issues, we have case managers who help family members with making sure a patient goes to the right place such as acute rehab, subacute rehab, home with physical/speech therapy or a nursing home. If your hospital does not have this, perhaps a social worker can help you. There has to be someone at the hospital who can help you, some patient-hospital liaison, because even if they say it's your responsibility they should give you some guidance.

1041487 tn?1256327719 Mom has reached the 3-month mark of her stroke recovery. She is still in a nursing home, doing well with her speech therapy. She is able to slowly lift her neck, and slowly turn her head from the left to the middle. She is alert and talks with slurred speech, since she is still unable to completely control her tongue. She can, however, clearly say "yes, no and hi" On the negative side, she is still unable to move any of her limbs. Her left arm has contracted close to her chest.
Avatar n tn My father recently came home from the hospital diagonsis TIA. His speech has been effected slightly as well as the use of his left arm and leg. In my opinion they are at about 75% of use. We are looking for information to help him in his recovery. Both physical and mental.
