We are pleased to introduce the Outpatient Stroke Rehabilitation Clinics in
Lloydminster and North Battleford and the Stroke Clinic in
Lake. People who have experienced a recent stroke will now have access to coordinated outpatient rehabilitation services.
Team members from Primary Health Care and Population Health collaborated to improve and coordinate services for people who have had recent strokes and their families. The services are based on recommendations from the Canadian Stroke Strategy. Research has shown that early TIA and stroke identification, treatment and stroke rehabilitation leads to better functional outcomes, recovery and improved quality of life.
Each Stroke Rehabilitation team will support clients through recovery from a stroke in regular dedicated stroke clinics. The goal of the clinics is to improve the experience of participants by improving access to and coordinating the multiple services that they may require. The core team will consist of Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy and Chronic Disease Education. Other team members will be involved based on client’s needs.
As a part of this service, the Living with Stroke program designed by the Heart and Stroke Foundation is offered 3 to 4 times per year in
Lake, North Battleford and
Lloydminster. Living with Stroke is a workshop program for stroke survivors and caregivers. It consists of 8 group learning sessions held weekly.
Referrals are now being received. See enclosed referral form and pamphlet. To facilitate access to care, all referrals are to be directed the Chronic Disease Management Nurse in each city see contact information below:
