“Stroke, also known as cerebrovascular accident (CVA) can have lasting, debilitating effects. Although stroke mortality rates are declining, the incidence of stroke is steadily increasing, with a projected doubling by 2030 as Baby Boomers enter their older adult years.1, 2 Since more people are surviving their stroke, efforts to reduce stroke-related disability will become increasingly more important to offset the associated rise in medical costs. Few medical conditions are capable of drastically impacting everyday life alterations as an acute stroke, and therefore the current model of recovery primarily focuses on medical stabilization.
Although healthcare and research teams have addressed the physical implications of stroke, few initiatives have incorporated a holistic, individualized interdisciplinary perspective of post-stroke recovery and wellness care for survivors and their caregivers. The current healthcare model often leaves bewildered patients and their caregivers in a vulnerable position as they try to cope with the unfamiliar, multifaceted, and often isolating realities of post-stroke life. Once the patient has returned home, stroke patients and their families are often burdened by a complete restructuring of their daily lives. Therefore, it is imperative the healthcare team consider a broader model of care to optimize stroke recovery and wellness.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5142760/
