Natalia Rost, MD, Neurology, answeredWith at-home stroke rehabilitation, a rehabilitation specialist from a home health agency may come to your home for a set number of hours and days on a short-term basis. Home rehabilitation can address physical impairments and speech and language difficulties. The intensity of the program can be tailored to your needs. At-home rehabilitation is usually best for people who need one type of rehabilitation therapist (say, a physical therapist or a speech therapist) instead of several therapists, and who can't get to and from an outpatient facility. But to some extent your choice is dictated by your insurance coverage. At-home rehabilitation may not be covered unless you are homebound -- physically unable to leave your home.
