Comprehensive Stroke Rehabilitation
The Comprehensive Stroke Rehabilitation Program at Roger C. Peace Rehabilitation Hospital exemplifies excellence in the continuum of care provided by the Greenville Health System. Rehabilitation is initiated as soon as possible by a specialized medical team including physicians, nurses, therapists, neuropsychologists, and case managers experienced in assessing the extent of cognitive and physiologic impairments associated with the geriatric stroke.
Comprehensive evaluations are designed to meet the needs of the geriatric patient. Treatment plans are developed to help the patient and caregiver return home as soon as possible. Patients and families work with clinicians to learn about nutritional and functional needs. Patients are evaluated for prosthetics, orthotics, and other adaptive equipment, including SaeboFlex®, a custom orthosis and therapy program designed to help restore hand function.

Young Stroke Program
Young Stroke Program provides specialized treatment services to those younger than the typical stroke age. Candidacy is based not solely on age but also on required therapeutic intensity and interdisciplinary needs. We also work closely with the Brain Injury Association of America.
Patients work to reach recovery goals with neurologists, nurses, speech-language pathologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and neuropsychologists at Peace Rehabilitation Outpatient Brain Injury Program. A vocational rehabilitation counselor helps patients transition back to work.
