Most people who survive a stroke will have some type of disability. But many people are able to make significant improvements through rehabilitation. According to the National Stroke Association:
- 10% of stroke survivors recover almost completely
- 25% recover with minor impairments
- 40% experience moderate-to-severe impairments that require special care
- 10% require care in a nursing home or other long-term facility
For the best chance of improvement and regaining abilities, it is important that rehabilitation starts as soon as possible after a stroke.
