Rocky Mountain Stroke Center’s mission is to provide information, rehabilitation, and support to stroke survivors and their families in Colorado, and provide education to the greater community about stroke. RMSC was founded over 30 years ago in 1992 in response to a gap in the continuum of care for stroke recovery. Often, insurance-covered rehabilitation and support only last 6 months to 1 year. Many people discontinue rehabilitation at this point, due to the expensive out-of-pocket rates. RMSC fees are similar to a co-pay and allow survivors and family members to get the rehabilitation and support they need for the long-term recovery. Stroke survivors continue to make progress in recovery 2, 10, and 20 years post-stroke.
The rehabilitation programs offered by RMSC are designed to challenge and support survivors at any place in their individual journey. Most of the programs are offered in a group environment that provides social interaction as well as lots of encouragement and inspiration! Individual and family services are designed to offer support, stroke education, strategies for coping, and connection to community resources. RMSC has services developed specifically for young stroke survivors and caregivers/family members.
Rehabilitation Programs include: Aphasia Class, Book Club, Brain Fit Music Therapy, Cognitive Class, Critical Thinking Class, Individual Skill-Building Sessions, Just Guys Group, Physical Therapy, Reading and Writing Class, and Warm Water Pool Therapy.
Individual and Family Services include: Stroke Survivor and Caregiver Support Groups, Individual Counseling Sessions, Stroke 101 Educational Series, and Caregiver Workshops.
RMSC services are offered both online via Zoom and in-person. To learn more, visit our website or call the office!
