People who have suffered or suffer from a neurological disease
The most common neurological diseases are stroke, parkinson, spinal cord injury and dementia. Many of them can cause many symptoms, among the most common are loss of strength and sensitivity or of movement control, cognitive impairment, or language disorders among others.
All of them are characterized by being shocking to the person suffering from them, as they limit the abilities and activities of their daily living, from the most basic to the most advanced task, and very often lead patients to dependence.
People who are at any stage of the disease
The acute phase of a disease corresponds to the period in which the process has a rapid course. In the subacute phase, the evolution is slow but not chronic. When we talk about the chronic phase of a disease, we mean that it is long-lasting.
Patients suffering from neurological diseases can go through all three phases, and the duration of each phase depends on the type of injury and the characteristics of the disease.
The rehabilitation treatment is an integral part of medical management and begins after the first diagnostic and therapeutic care, continues from the acute and subacute phase to the reintegration into the community. The starting assessment and the rehabilitation program should be made as soon as possible if the medical and neurological conditions allow us to. The main objective of the patient’s rehabilitation is to achieve the maximum functional capacity and reintegration into their community.
Family, caregivers, and friends
We understand that neurological injuries affect many aspects of the life of the person who suffers from them, and also to their closest environment: family, friends, and caregivers. Our relationship with the patient changes and we often do not know how to deal with the new situation. Guidance, advice and support for people close to the patient can greatly help both the patient and those around him or her.
