Stroke Recovery And Rehab

For more information about Lasell House, please call Marie-Francoise Maitre, (617) 663-7042.

At Lasell House, our stroke recovery and rehab services are designed to give you the best chance of regaining function and independence, as quickly as possible.

Most people who experience a stroke might begin to recover and start rehab while they’re still in the hospital and then need to be transferred to a skilled nursing facility. We’re a 38-bed skilled nursing facility in Newton that offers stroke recovery and rehab services. A Medicare-certified facility, we’ve been awarded a 5-Star Medicare rating (the highest distinction).

The impacts and limitations from a mild or severe stroke can include:

  • paralysis
  • cognitive issues
  • speech and language limitations
  • difficulty swallowing and/or chewing
  • uncontrollable bladder and/or bowels

For people who have had a stroke, our treatment and rehab process often includes:

  • pain management
  • prevention of another stroke
  • physical therapy (to regain movement and coordination)
  • speech therapy (to regain speech and language skills)
  • occupational therapy (to regain the ability to perform daily activities, such as eating, drinking, dressing, and bathing)

We offer stroke recovery and rehab services for residents of Lasell Village, as well as people in Newton and the Greater Boston area.

For more information about our stroke recovery and rehab services at Lasell House, please contact Marie-Francoise Maitre, Director of Admissions, at (617) 663-7042 or mmaitre@lasell.edu.

Please note: Lasell House is affiliated with Lasell Village in Newton, Massachusetts, which is a continuing care retirement community that’s only 11 miles from downtown Boston. In addition to providing stroke recovery and rehab, we also offer wound care management, joint replacement and orthopedic rehab, infection and infectious disease management, cardiac rehab, and end-of-life care and hospice care.
