Community stroke service

The Community Stroke Service provides therapy and rehabilitation for clients in their own homes post stroke within the Herefordshire area.

The Community Stroke Service is made up of two pathways: 

  • Early Supported Discharge (ESD)      
  • Community Stroke Service (CSS)   

Following referral, the Community Stroke Service will assess you and, if required, develop a programme of therapy designed to meet your individual needs. 

The Community Stroke Service consists of different therapists: 

  • Physiotherapy
  • Occupational Therapy                  
  • Speech and Language Therapy
  • Therapy Support Workers
  • Clinical Psychology

As a team we aim to: 

  • set realistic, meaningful goals
  • understand your stroke and manage your condition as independently as possible
  • increase your level of participation in daily activities of all kinds
  • work on and improve impairments in physical, neurological or cognitive function and manage any residual disability
