In most cases, Stroke Survivors have some physical skills that are hampered as a result of the stroke.
Some Stroke Survivors feel broken. The spirit must receive counseling and reparative therapy to become whole.
Faith-based Counseling therapy by licensed psychologists is available to both Stroke Survivors and their caregivers, if they are willing.
If speech is affected, there can be a real difference between what the Stroke Survivor is thinking and what, if anything, he or she can say. ALH does not have an in-house speech recovery program at this time, though it is working towards that. Therefore, if this appears to be the case, ALH can refer them to an Austin-located Speech Therapist for help in this area.
