Community Stroke - South Nottingham County
The Community Stroke Team work with patients within the South Nottingham County, covering Rushcliffe, North West and North East Nottingham.
We aim to support people after stroke for early discharge from hospital to meet their ongoing need.
We provide specialist rehabilitation to patients over 18 who have had a stroke over the first 12 months. We work in conjunction with patients, their families and carers in order to maximise their rehabilitation.
The service also offers long term reviews at 6 and 12 months. This provides service users the opportunity to access further input or to be signposted to other services, which may help them recover post-stroke or meet their quality of life needs.
To support recovery after stroke and maximise individuals’ rehabilitation potential, patients can access physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech & language therapists and psychology to meet their individual rehabilitation needs.
We believe in working jointly with patients to meet their goals and provide support and advice for ongoing lifestyle management.
We aim to support patients to achieve their quality of life and lifestyle goals, and to continue to enjoy hobbies and activities. We also liaise with employers in helping patients return to work after a stroke when needed.
Our main base is at Stapleford Care Centre but we also have local area bases at Park House and Lings Bar.
