Atlantic Neuroscience Institute’s Stroke Rehabilitation Education Program
In addition, Atlantic Neuroscience Institute offers a stroke rehabilitation education program designed by our past stroke survivors and their families. By educating patients to identify and control risk factors, we can help them reduce their risk of secondary stroke. Each of our stroke patients receives a copy of the Stroke Survivor’s Handbook, which includes stroke educational materials as well as information on the recovery environment and the health care professionals involved in their treatment and care.
