UConn Health also has a dedicated stroke clinic available to anyone who is at an increased risk for stroke, has warning signs for a stroke, or has had a stroke or mini-stroke in the past.
If you fit this criteria, the specialized staff will assess your likelihood of having a stroke and will work with you to create a plan just for you to help reduce your risks.
If you are at an increased risk for stroke, or have had a warning sign such as a transient ischemic attack (TIA), UConn Health’s Neurovascular Program can assess your risk factors and develop individualized management strategies that can help reduce your risk of suffering a stroke.
Stroke Recovery and Care
At UConn Health, we recognize that every patient is unique and work closely to help patients who experience a stroke recover at their pace and achieve their goals. Depending on each patient’s needs, follow-up care involves UConn Health specialists in the following areas – all of which are part of our comprehensive stroke team:
- Ear, Nose, and Throat
- Occupational Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Specialized Eye Care
- Speech Therapy
When appropriate, patients can also receive follow-up care from experts at the UConn Center on Aging who understand the often complex needs of older patients.
