Between 25,000-35,000 Ontarians experience a stroke every year and upwards of 300,000-360,000 are living with the consequences of stroke. Most of these patients will require access to intensive interprofessional stroke rehabilitation services after their inpatient hospital stay. Appropriate and timely rehabilitation can significantly improve outcomes for people who have experienced a stroke, increasing their level of independence and opportunity for community re-engagement, and overall quality of life. This initiative is envisioned as a multi-year project to enable an equitable, integrated, and patient-centred system of care that supports recovery of patients after stroke.
The purpose of this project is to plan, develop, and action a provincial publicly funded Community Stroke Rehabilitation program to provide post stroke community-based care in a consistent and equitable way.
