My dad had a stroke 16/03 and was in ICU for 2 weeks so has been awake and on the acute neurology unit for just over 2 weeks. He’s ready for a bed at rehab but they said it could be weeks to wait.
I am trying to find private inpatient facilities around north Manchester but drawing blank.
We are really worried that this wait will hinder his chance of a good recovery
Lucy-After 3 1/2 years, I am still improving. So, I know that the brain rewires and keeps on learning and healing after stroke with work. There’s no cutoff time. But I have heard that the first six months is where you see the most improvement, but that doesn’t mean it stops after that. The sooner he can start rehab, the better, though. I hope you can find something soon. My prayers will be with you and your dad tonight. Jeanne
My husband was unable to start rehabilitation for about 2.5 months following his stroke due to other complications but, especially since coming home, 8 months post stroke, he continues to make small improvements that are more evident when looking back at what he was like then. We are also looking for private rehabilitation, either residential or perhaps weekly visits. If anyone has tried private rehabilitation, I’d be pleased to hear of your experience. Many thanks
