Welcome to St Mary's Hospital Stroke Rehabilitation Programme
After suffering a stroke, many stroke survivors experience problems with physical, speech and memory functions.
Helping a person to overcome these issues is part of the service provided by staff on the Isolda Stroke Rehabilitation Unit.
On Isolda, our rehabilitation program helps stroke survivors to regain lost skills and relearn tasks, with the view to regaining independence and helping stroke survivors overcome many of the problems associated with having a stroke.

About Your Rehabilitation Journey
Secondary Stroke Prevention
“Rehabilitation is about getting back to normal life and living as independently as possible. It involves taking an active approach to ensure that your life goes on. This can mean learning new skills or relearning old ones. It may involve adapting to new limitations and post-stroke conditions, or it can mean finding new social, emotional, and practical support to live life to the best of your ability post-stroke.”
(The NHS in Your Neighbourhood, Life After Stroke, Spring 2014, Edition 2)
