myPathTM Stroke Rehabilitation Program
Jackie, Stroke survivor
Having a stroke can be devastating—not only for the patient, but for the patient’s family. Jewish Senior Life’s myPath Stroke Rehabilitation Program is designed to help patients relearn how to walk, talk, and resume the basic activities of daily living so they can get back to their best selves after a hospital stay.
After multiple strokes, Jackie found that even the simplest tasks were a challenge. Hear Jackie’s story and see how the myPath Stroke Rehabilitation Program at the Jewish Home helped her get back to her best self.
Our goal is to help patients achieve positive outcomes and to help them reach their highest level of functioning and independence in order to return to the community safely and with any necessary support services.

- Activities of living, such as eating, dressing, grooming, bathing, and homemaking

- Improving memory and judgment
- Balance, coordination and overall mobility
- Exercise based on patient’s abilities
Our highly personalized, integrated program offerings include:
- Individualized care plans
- Nurses trained in stroke intervention and rehabilitation care
- Physical, occupational, and speech therapy seven days a week
- State-of-the-art technology to improve neuromuscular control
- Anxiety and pain management
