Abstract: Outcome after stroke is measured in a number of ways, including medical morbidity, mortality, length of hospitalization, cost, functional ability, placement at discharge, and quality of life. The aim of the study was to assess the efficacy of rehabilitation in maintaining achieved gains and reducing long-term costs and illustrate the efficacy of various levels of rehabilitative services on stroke outcome. Recovery from a stroke can be a challenging process. Inpatient rehabilitation teams should combine personalized attention with leading-edge therapies to help each patient achieve the highest possible level of independence.
