Rehabilitation efforts are important from the moment our patients enter our care. The Rehabilitation Department at Torrance Memorial includes:
- Physical rehabilitation
- Speech therapy
- Occupational therapy
Our outstanding therapists work as part of the multidisciplinary team in the Stroke Center Program in order to provide optimal care for stroke patients. Dedicated rehabilitation doctors are available to help our patients and their families. Depending on the needs of the patient, we try to have our patients start rehabilitation services within 24 hours if not sooner.
Following a stroke, patients can continue to improve and regain functionality over the course of months -- sometimes up to a year or more. Intensive rehabilitation therapy may continue for a long time after discharge from Torrance Memorial.
Our rehabilitation therapists actively involve families as much as possible, and work with the patient, family and physicians to achieve an optimal level of community integration as soon as possible.
