Why We Do What We Do: A Story of Stroke Recovery 4 Years Out

Stroke recovery is a complex process dependent upon a multitude of factors that occur during the acute hospital stay as well as during the post-acute hospital period. With hospital stays being limited to just days, acute care healthcare professionals see only the initial stroke insult; they do not have the benefit of seeing the patient’s progress in the post-acute period where the majority of progress is made. This case study outlines the continual process of functional recovery 4 years post stroke for Cody, a now 21 year-old stroke survivor who had a large MCA stroke at age 17, and received aggressive acute care prior to an aggressive rehabilitation program.
