Answer

Answer

In summary, outcome after stroke is definitely influenced by the rehabilitation setting, which often depends on the ability and availability of a patient’s family to provide care. Physiatrists need to weigh early and later prognostic indicators, as well as social support, before recommending the appropriate postacute rehabilitation setting.
