Stroke is one of Australia’s biggest killers and a leading cause of disability. Around 30% of stroke survivors are of working age (under the age of 65). 65% of stroke survivors suffer a disability that impedes their ability to carry out daily living activities unassisted.
The Alpha Carers Australia 'Post-Stroke' rehabilitation programme, successfully supports and assists individuals to transition from 'Hospital to Home' & from 'Home to Community'.
The 'Post-Stroke' rehabilitation programme supports stroke survivors in returning to their home environment and reducing hospital readmissions through emotional support, access to information, and the required services such as hospital visitation programs.
Alpha Carers Australia helps stroke survivors regain their function through a variety of services to maximize community participation and independence.
