A stroke can change how you talk, walk—even the way you look. But it can’t change who you are. In fact, it’s this mindset that makes Brooks different. We do everything it takes to get you back home and to the people, places and things that make you, you.

The quickest route to recovery
We know that intensive therapy helps stroke patients improve more quickly and function more independently than would otherwise be possible. At Brooks, you’ll receive more personally supervised
therapy than you would in other stroke rehabilitation settings. In fact, each weekday you will receive three or more hours of therapy during your inpatient stay. Therapy is spaced throughout the day with nursing care and breaks at regular intervals. In addition, we also provide additional therapy and recreational activities on the weekends.

Moving forward—one day at a time
Stroke affects each person differently. That’s why we at Brooks Rehabilitation offer a full continuum of care for our stroke patients. Our range of additional therapies and programs can help each and every patient address the unique effects of a stroke—whether the goal is to regain strength and balance for better mobility, return to everyday activities or enhance memory and communication skills.
Research continually proves that, with the right medical rehabilitation, progress isn’t just possible—it’s probable. At Brooks, we share the belief that you can continue—that you can be you again.
Even when your stay in the hospital is over, Brooks remains committed to helping you grow and succeed with our comprehensive continuum of care.
