Stroke Rehabilitation

Life after a Stroke

 

After a stroke, rehabilitation will not only focus on helping someone recover from disabilities but also on making changes in lifestyle, home, work, and relationships. Changes will depend on the type of disabilities, which are determined by the part of the brain affected by the stroke.

A stroke in the right side of the brain can cause difficulty with performing everyday tasks. This type of stroke affects the ability to judge distance, size, position, rate of movement, form, and the way parts relate to the whole (spatial-perceptual problems).

Perception problems may include:

  • Not noticing people or things on the affected side and turning the head or eyes to the unaffected side.

  • Someone with these types of problems may not be able to steer a wheelchair through a large doorway without bumping the door frame.

  • Not being aware of body parts on the affected side.

  • Difficulty forming numbers and letters, confusing similar numbers, or not being able to add numbers.

  • Having trouble spelling words and reading.

  • Confusing the inside and outside of clothing or the right and left sides of clothing.

  • Having a hard time perceiving whether he or she is sitting or standing.
