How Our Comprehensive Stroke and Neuro Program Can Aid in Recovery

A stroke can seem to occur out of the blue and often they are deadly. According to the National Stroke Association, strokes are actually the fourth leading cause of death in America and a leading cause of adult disability. Mostly, they occur when a blood clot blocks an artery or a blood vessel, interrupting blood flow to an area of the brain. For survivors, treatment for the fullest recovery possible is imperative.

Of course, strokes aren’t the only neurological and life-altering events that can seriously impair a lifestyle. At Regents Park Boca Raton, we’re equipped to help in the recovery process for a broad range of neurological problems, including head injury, traumatic head injury, Parkinson’s disease, brain tumor, arteriovenous malformation and aneurysms.

To treat people in our stroke and neurological program, we assemble a multidisciplinary team to assess and target a comprehensive care plan best suited to treat each patient and the specific nature of the individual’s problem.

The rehab team involved in our strategy includes the attending physician, nursing professionals, a social worker, physical, occupational and speech therapists as well as a neurologist and physiatrist. Communication between all team members is continual with a team conference held weekly and frequent updates to family and the patient.

Care plans are individualized for every patient based on their diagnosis and needs. The goal is to maximize each patient’s functional abilities, restoring him or her to an optimal functional level.

Any time we work with patients who experienced a stroke or other neurological issue, we involve not just the patient but the patient’s family. We believe it’s important that both are taught compensatory techniques to improve independent living and reduce the burden on caregivers upon discharge. Patients are also urged to continue their rehabilitation program after they’ve gone home, with close monitoring by their primary physician and neurologist.

I spent about 3 months in this facility with a shattered knee joint. Never did I encounter anyone who was not caring, pleasant and competent. I had serious complications following knee surgery and they brought me back from being in serious pain, and unable to even sit up on a gurney – to walking bipedal with a wheeled walker at discharge. After discharge, and subsequent home care and out-patient care – I am now walking normally and healthy.

The facility is kosher as are the meals – but they were nutritious and tasted quite well. Overall, I would equate it to a cruise, without the ship; they will give you as much as you can eat and I actually gained weight along with considerable strength through daily physical and occupational therapy. I learned something about another culture, and thoroughly enjoyed the recovery experience, despite the restrictions of a kosher diet to a non-kosher individual. Visitors were allowed to bring me pizza and cheeseburgers.

It is not an acute facility, but my healing process needed a less strenuous recovery anyway. I received 2-3 hours of therapy each day, including Saturday and Sunday to the limits of my safe endurance. One of the better features is that they assigned me one individual, who worked with me primarily, except on his 2 days of per week. Robert and Bernie were big men, capable of catching me if I fell, and they saved me every time I faltered. Even the aide, who bathed me when I was immobilized, was there to save me one time when I slipped in the shower. Further, I would emphasize that the Occupational Therapy “is a key part of successful recovery”. The strength training accelerates one’s metabolism and the healing process.

My devoted wife was with me constantly following my accident and they did everything to accommodate her.
