Realising that therapy is a significant part in the strokee’s recovery journey, and NASAM steps in to bridge the gap.
At NASAM, we run affordable and frequent rehabilitation programmes for our beneficiaries in a home-like setting. Strokees have a choice of group therapy, customised one-on-one therapy or both. For those who cannot be physically present, we also run tele-health rehabilitation services, and guide family members in helping their loved ones through their recovery.
We look into the physical, emotional and social needs of strokees and our integrated approach includes physiotherapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, emotional therapy, recreational and social activities as well as various complementary therapies. An example of which is the Head2Heal programme, which seeks to provide holistic recovery for patients in mind, body and spirit.
At NASAM, we have also developed different programmes aimed at empowering and enabling stoke survivors to reconnect spiritually and live with meaning and fulfilment beyond the limitations of an arm and a leg. These include:
- Public speaking courses prepare our stroke survivors to develop a
voice and confidence to speak to audiences.
- Taking charge and organising social programmes like bowling or
visiting a mall enhances self confidence
- Peer-to-peer counselling. Stroke survivors reaching out to mentor and
guide fellow stroke survivors, especially those just beginning their
journey of recovery.
All these, and more, are part of reclaiming life after stroke and journeying towards a meaningful recovery.
