Stroke Rehabilitation Care Pathway
Our Stroke Patients Outcomes
Who you decide to have your Stroke Rehabilitation with can dramatically influence the level of choice and control you will have over your future. All Strokes are individual to the person, but we have collected data to help reassure you our therapy team have the right skills and experience to enable you to be the very best you, you can be. Click on the Barthel and Modified Rivermead infographics below, to see the improvements on average our Stroke patients gain in their mobility and independence.
Our Stroke Pathway
Finding the right partner for your Stroke Rehabilitation can feel very stressful. To help you and your family understand the Stroke Rehabilitation Care Pathway at The Marbrook Centre, we have created an infographic to illustrate how we will work with you and your commissioner, so at all times you are the centre of your own care.
What is a Stroke?
A Stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to a part of the brain is cut off. Like all our organs the brain needs oxygen and nutrients to function properly, so if stopped or restricted, our brain cells will die.
There are two main causes of strokes;
Ischaemic – blood supply is stopped by a blood clot (85% of all strokes)
Haemorrhagic – where a weakened blood vessel supplying the brain, bursts.
In the UK, each year 110,000 individuals will have a Stroke and it is now the third largest cause of death. See link to an NHS animation explaining what happens in a Stroke.
