Thousands of people are affected by a Stroke every year in Indonesia. A Stroke occurs when the blood supply to a part of the brain is suddenly interrupted by a clot (embolus) or by a vessel bursting (hemorrhage). Disrupting the blood flow robs brain cells of vital nutrients and oxygen, damaging or killing these cells. The effects of a stroke may be very mild or severe, temporary or permanent. Outcome depends on a number of factors including the location and extent of the stroke, the person’s age and general health, personality, support of friends and family, and specialized care received.

 

STROKE RELATED DISABILITIES

Depending on which area of the brain is damaged, and the severity of the damage, stroke can result in five types of disabilities:

  • Paralysis or problems controlling movement
  • Sensory disturbances including pain & visual perception
  • Problems using or understanding language
  • Problems with attention, memory, and thinking
  • Emotional changes

Rehabilitation following a stroke can be a long journey. Our goal is to provide an individualized rehabilitation program for the stroke patients with the help of their families. Together we identify priorities and objectives and create the means that will enable the patients to return to their community at their highest level of functional, physical, social and emotional well-being.

When the brain suffers an injury, a person may experience physical and cognitive impairments which may lead to functional limitations. These limitations may include paralysis on one side of the body, difficulties with walking, balance, speech and language, swallowing and coordinating their movements.

Functional rehabilitation is designed for people who have lost their independence with moving, walking or taking care of themselves following illness, surgery or accident. The program strives to help the patients regain their highest level of general strength and endurance as well as their highest level of functional independence through patient-centred and functionally oriented treatment.

The program utilizes the neuro-developmental treatment approach to enhance postural, gross motor and fine motor control. It also uses the functional tasks of childhood (such as play) to treat developmental, behavioural, social, and cognitive needs of children (preschool and up). Skill areas addressed include age appropriate self-care skills, school related skills, encouraging positive self concepts, regulation of the arousal levels necessary for attending in a variety of settings, sensory discriminations and processing, fine and gross motor skills, social interaction, and cognitive functioning. Intervention with families is an integral part of the therapy process as is communication with other professionals.
