GETTING STARTED

Who can participate in Next Step programs?

Individuals who can independently manage their personal needs (eating and going to the bathroom) without assistance. If assistance is needed a caregiver must be present with the stroke survivor.


Do you have any of these symptoms following your stroke?

  • Weakness on one side
  • Vision difficulties (such as a visual field cut)
  • Difficulty speaking or understanding others (aphasia)
  • Using a wheelchair, cane, or walker
  • Memory or other thinking difficulties


You may benefit from the Next Step programs.


Are you ready to take the Next Step?

  • Schedule a time to visit
  • Complete an intake assessment (approximately one hour) that determines eligibility, needs, and goals
  • Provide emergency contacts, hospital preference, and physician’s release


If you would like to start the Next Step application process, call today to schedule a visit: 913-649-1776.
