RCOT supports call for more therapy for stroke survivors

  • Recommendations for greater rehab support for stroke survivors by the Stroke Association
  • National Institute for health & care excellence (NICE) guidelines recommend that stroke survivors receive at least 45 minutes, five days a week of each type of rehabilitation therapy for as long as it is of benefit to them
  • However the stroke association has revealed that on average stroke survivors only receive around a third of the recommendation
  • Evidence proves that with correct Occupational therapy support, people can lead independent & healthy lives & return home quickly following a stroke
