This study evaluates a program designed to help individuals transition home from inpatient rehabilitation following and ischemic stroke. Half of the participants will receive a stroke education program while the other half will receive an environmental modifications program.
A gap in care exists at the point of transition from inpatient rehabilitation (IR) to home, when survivors encounter new environmental barriers due to the cognitive and sensorimotor sequelae of stroke. Resolving these barriers and improving independence in the community have potential to significantly improve stroke survivors' long-term morbidity. The proposed study investigates the efficacy and safety of a novel enhanced rehabilitation-transition program to reduce environmental barriers and improve daily activity performance and community participation.

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.
A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)
A condition caused by the failure of body to dissipate heat in an excessively hot environment or during PHYSICAL EXERTION in a hot environment. Contrast to HEAT EXHAUSTION, the body temperature in heat stroke patient is dangerously high with red, hot skin accompanied by DELUSIONS; CONVULSIONS; or COMA. It can be a life-threatening emergency and is most common in infants and the elderly.
A drug combination of aspirin and dipyridamole that functions as a PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR, used to prevent THROMBOSIS and STROKE in TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK patients.
