Natalia Rost, MD, Neurology, answeredStroke rehabilitation hospitals include free-standing hospitals and special units in acute-care hospitals that offer short-term inpatient rehabilitation. The rehabilitation usually lasts about three or four weeks, but it can be slightly more or less depending on your needs. Rehab hospitals provide about three hours of stroke rehabilitation a day, a fairly demanding schedule. Physicians specializing in rehabilitation are actively involved in overseeing each person's care. A variety of other rehabilitation specialists -- such as physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists -- meet regularly as a team to discuss each person's progress. Rehab hospitals also have psychologists on hand to treat depression.
