Orlando Health offers rehabilitation for a variety of neurological disorders. Our expertise extends beyond treating patients with brain injuries and stroke. In fact, as part of the Orlando Health Neurosciences Center of Excellence, our rehabilitation teams are experienced and comfortable treating patients with a wide array of central nervous system disorders. Some neurological diagnoses we commonly see include:
- Brain Tumor (Primary Brain or Metastatic)
- Disease Entities (Encephalitis)
- Neuromuscular Diseases (Parkinson's, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis - ALS/Lou Gehrig's disease, Huntington's disease, etc.)
- Dementias (Alzheimer's Disease, Lewy Body Dementia, Prion Disease, Primary Progressive Aphasia)
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Multiple Sclerosis
Orlando Health is unique from other hospital systems in that we are able to provide a complete continuum of care. This means our patients have access to doctors, nurses, and therapists who specialize in treating their specific disability throughout the entire hospital stay and after discharge to our outpatient programs. We recognize that rehabilitation needs change as the patient progresses from one level of care to another. Whether your journey at Orlando Health begins in the acute care phase, with our inpatient rehab programs, or after you are home and enter our outpatient rehab programs, out teams are staffed with professionals who are knowledgeable and experienced at treating your diagnosis in that specific phase of recovery.
We recognize that disability not only affects the survivor, but the whole family. That’s why at Orlando Health, you and your family are our partners in healthcare. Our staff will provide education to you about your diagnosis and specific areas of disability. You and your family are encouraged to participate in the treatment process as much as possible and to help set goals that are important to you. Prior to discharge, the team will involve you in the discharge planning process so that you are ready to face the next phase in your life.
