A stroke is a brain injury that occurs when the flow of fresh, oxygen-filled blood from the heart and lungs to the brain is interrupted by a blockage or rupture. This starves the brain of its energy source and causes nerve cells to die, which then results in a loss of function in the areas controlled by the affected part of the brain.
Strokes and their effects can be frightening, but Sheltering Arms provides you with an environment of knowledge and caring. It helps to remember that people usually have at least some spontaneous recovery or natural healing after a stroke and often recover further with rehabilitation.
At Sheltering Arms, we offer a broad range of services to help you and your family, including the best equipment available in the field of physical rehabilitation and therapists with extensive training and expertise in helping people regain function and independence following stroke. You are the number one priority for our physicians, therapists, nurses and medical psychologists and they will work with you to understand your lifestyle and recovery goals and develop treatment plans accordingly.
