A Stroke occurs when the blood supply has been cut off to an area of the brain. Strokes have one of the most debilitating neurological after effects, but strokes aren’t the only condition that affects the neurological functioning in patients. Other Neurological problems which affect the brain in a similar way include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury, or Traumatic Brain Injury. Studies have shown that proper rehabilitative care makes a positive impact in allowing patients to function independently and pursue a good Quality of Life (QOL). Palmeira Home Health has developed a proven Clinical Pathway to achieve client’s goal of attaining highest functional level despite their neurological deficits.
