Hedla´s team, consisting of well-trained and committed physiotherapists, speech language pathologists, neurologists and rehabilitation doctors all work closely with the participant and significant others to optimise the rehabilitation. Prior to each program, the participant meets with our team for a thorough evaluation of health conditions, symptoms and individual abilities. Together with the team, the participant sets relevant and measurable goals for the period and a rehabilitation plan is then carefully designed.
Research show that an enriched environment has a very positive impact on the brain and its ability to recover from neurological injury or illness. The concept of an enriched environment is defined, in research contexts, as a combination of three main components: physical activity, intellectual stimulation and social interaction.
The site of Hedla's facilities in Almuñécar has been carefully selected to offer a truly enriched environment with sea views and lush gardens. Both indoor and outdoor areas specially designed for neurological rehabilitation, socialising and exchanging experiences with people in a similar situation. Our facilities, as well as the surroundings with adjacent parks, mountains and beaches enable training in varied terrain and offer lifelike physical and cognitive challenges at all levels. The good climate in Almuñécar also plays an important role, as it allows for outdoor training almost every day of the year.
During the rehab period, we offer recurring lectures and workshops. We place great focus on both practical and theoretical education with our participants and their significant others, especially in the following areas:
Satu or Adam, who have both completed parts of their rehabilitation at Hedla, may be able to help you with wonders and concerns.
Adam suffered a stroke in 2019, resulting in loss of left-sided motor skills and brain fatigue.
Satu had a stroke in the cerebellum and trunk in 2018 and then suffered from speech difficulties, loss of sensation and impaired motor skills, strength and balance.
