Slow Stream Rehabilitation

Slow stream rehabilitation refers to a model of service delivery provided to individuals whose recovery is considered to be slow or prolonged, and who are often regarded as being inappropriate for traditional, intensive rehabilitation, in particular those with severe to very severe brain injuries. There is increasing evidence that these individuals have significant potential for recovery, even several years after injury, when provided with effective rehabilitation. As such, there is increasing recognition of the role that appropriately timed and individually-tailored rehabilitation can play for people with severe brain injuries in optimising their function, supporting their independence and maximising their quality of life. Slow stream rehabilitation has been identified as an important factor in avoiding entry into residential care for these individuals.
