Clinical Outcomes for Stroke Patients at Casa Colina

  • Physical Improvement

    Patients with stroke improve in their mobility and cognition throughout our continuum of care allowing them to return home safely. Using the Stroke Rehabilitation Assessment of Movement (STREAM), we measure basic mobility such as movement of arms, lying down, sitting, standing, and walking. At Casa Colina, patients with stroke significantly improve their mobility throughout our continuum of care.

    (Data collected between 1/2010 – 9/2012; sample size for IP = 222, TLC = 17, OP = 93)

  • STREAM Range = 0-100

  • Increased Independence

    Patients experience a significant decrease in the level of supervision they need, allowing them to return to their previous living environment. We use the Supervision Rating Scale to measure the amount of supervision an individual needs from a licensed professional or caregiver. On average when patients are admitted to Casa Colina after having a stroke, they require full time direct or indirect supervision. At discharge, patients only require part time supervision.

    (Data collected between 1/2010 - 9/2012; sample size for IP = 171, TLC = 7, OP = 14)
  • SRS Range = 0 - 13, 1 = Independent, 13 = Full time direct supervision

Cognitive Changes

Casa Colina patients experience significant improvements in their cognitive abilities, including memory and problem solving. We use the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) functional communication measures to observe changes in problem solving abilities and memory. On average, we observe significant changes as patients go from requiring maximum to only minimal cues for memory and problem solving tasks.

(Data collected between 1/2010 – 9/2012; sample size for IP = 171, TLC = 15, OP = 11)
Range = 1-7, 1 = Maximum Assistance, 7 = Independent
