Mayo Clinic rehab programs for stroke patients

Posted by @patriciadip, Feb 5, 2016

I’m looking for a rehab program for my husband who had a massive stroke on August 19, 2015. Tell me about the MAYO CLINIC rehab programs for stroke patients.

My mother had a Thalamic Stroke last week. She has just started inpatient rehab and being put on Amantadine 50 mg 2 x day to help wake up. Is this common in a rehab setting for patients to be put on this medication and does it help and what are the dangers?

Hi @patriciadip,
Here is online information about stroke including rehabilitation. There are also links describing the care at Mayo Clinic and how to request an appointment http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/stroke/home/ovc-20117264

How is your husband doing?
