Stroke Recovery

A stroke is a type of brain injury that occurs when the blood supply to the brain is stopped by a blood clot (ischaemic) or when a blood vessel bursts (hemorrhagic). 

The resulting symptoms - both physical and mental - may be complex and have a long-term impact on the person, changing the type of care they need. 

Recovering from a stroke can take many forms, but here at Gracewell, we can tailor a programme for your loved one that can help them regain some of the abilities they have lost or learn new ways to do everyday tasks.

By participating in group activities, our residents experience a supportive environment where they can interact with others. 

Recovering from a stroke doesn’t mean living a reduced life. The supportive atmosphere at Gracewell along with the qualified nursing staff can help your loved one continue to experience a full and happy life.

If you’re looking for stroke recovery care for a friend or loved one, we’re here to help. Search for your nearest Gracewell home and contact us for more information or to arrange a visit.

Access to our homes: latest information

We continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis, following public health advice. We've a detailed set of criteria to inform when an individual home can be reopened safely to limited visiting either by families of existing residents or by potential new residents who may want to view one of our homes. The majority of our homes are open for admissions.

As part of our approach to reopening for visitors, we'll be operating in a very different way. To minimise the risk of infection we've produced a safety guide. We'll continue to follow public health advice to determine when visits will return to normal and will continue to do our best to support residents to keep in touch with loved ones.
