Living Well After a Stroke

Christiana Care Hospital – John H. Ammon Medical Education Center
Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Recovering from a stroke takes time and rehabilitation is an important part of that recovery.

Join the Christiana Care’s Center for Rehabilitation team for “Living Well after Stroke,” a talk on the importance of rehabilitation after a stroke and reducing the risk factors for another stroke.

The Rehabilitation team will introduce stroke survivors and their care partners to the many approaches and steps to recovery and prevention along with the roles of the therapists in your journey from first steps to living life to the fullest.

An audience Q&A will follow.
