Leaving Inpatient Stroke Rehabilitation

UPMC Content 3

Recovering from a stroke may take longer than just the process spent in active inpatient rehabilitation.

The UPMC Rehabilitation Institute's Center for Acquired Brain Injury offers outpatient services for people with stroke and other forms of brain injury.

After leaving inpatient rehabilitation, you will still work with a physiatrist to address post-stroke issues such as:

  • Gait disorder
  • Difficulties in dressing, bathing, and other daily activities
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Inner ear (vestibular) disorder
  • Spasticity
  • Bowel and bladder dysfunction
  • Plans to return to work or school
  • Neuropsychological assessments

Outpatient services are available at multiple UPMC Centers for Rehab Services locations.

Discharge Planning and Community Re-entry Services After a Stroke

Patients and families should start planning for discharge from inpatient rehab as soon as possible.

The UPMC Rehabilitation Institute offers support and management services to connect you with available outpatient rehab resources and help you have a smooth transition from the hospital to the community.‚Äč
