Post Stroke Rehabilitation

Stroke rehabilitation is an important part of recovery, helping build back strength, coordination, endurance and confidence. In stroke rehabilitation, we teach patients how to move, talk, think and care for themselves. The goal is to help patients relearn the things they did before the stroke.

Peninsula Rehabilitation Center at our Oceanside campus is a specialized rehab hospital, fully accredited by The Joint Commission and the Commission of Rehabilitation Facilities. Our highly specialized training has enabled our staff to develop higher levels of expertise and achieve better results for our stroke patients so they may achieve their highest level of functional independence.
