This is a specialist therapy-led team including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and speech and language therapists. It is also made up of assistant practitioners, rehabilitation assistants, and a clinical psychologist. We assess and provide therapy input for stroke patients discharged from acute hospitals. This is carried out in the patient's home/care home face to face, via telehealth or video consultation. We are patient-centered and encourage patients to formulate their own rehabilitation goals which we support them to work towards. We offer 4 different pathways to suit each patient’s individual needs. These pathways vary in terms of their intensity and the length of time a patient stays in service.
The individual will gain an insight into all of the therapy specialties during the placement. They could also see the workings of a multi-disciplinary team. Alternatively, they could choose a therapy and focus on time within the framework of a specific therapy e.g. occupational therapy but would also have the opportunity to spend with other members of the team to gain a broader perspective of the rehabilitation journey.
