Ready to leave hospital … but not ready to go home?

If you have had a stroke or a fall, you may feel unsure about whether or not you need extra rehabilitation before heading home from hospital.

Some people are naturally more confident than others and may overestimate what they can manage, while others may underestimate what they are capable of doing on their own. It is important to clearly identify whether you need support

Some of the common flags to look for, whether you are a patient or concerned family member, are greater difficulties getting in and out of bed, on or off the toilet, or manoeuvring in and out of chairs. Perhaps walking may be harder than before.

Of course, it is important to focus on improving that basic mobility, not just for quality of day to day life but also to reduce the risk of falls that could result in a return trip to hospital!

Getting up and about is likely to be your top priority but even if you are doing well in that area, you may still need some additional rehabilitation if you are having trouble using your hands properly. It is amazing what a difference some intensive rehabilitation can make to essential daily tasks, such as getting dressed or making a cup of coffee in the morning.

You may also feel afraid about how you are going to manage at home, or feel worried about the risk of falls. This may well be a sign that you need some additional rehabilitation to boost your strength and balance so you can feel confident about going home.

Talk to your hospital specialist or General Practitioner – the North Canterbury Rehabilitation Centre could be just the ticket!
