Rehabilitation is the key to stroke recovery. That's why it's important for stroke survivors and their loved ones to make informed decisions about rehab facilities and programs.

The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association offers resources that can help patients and family caregivers match the rehab facility and services to their specific needs and goals. One such resource is a patient guide listing questions to ask the medical team and prospective rehab providers during the rehab-planning process. Answers to the questions can help clarify the decision-making process and improve the likelihood of a good fit.
