PREP (Post Rehab Exercise/Education Programme)
PREP provides additional support for stroke survivors after statutory rehab. Aimed at helping you to rebuild your life and gain confidence following a stroke, PREP does this through a combination of education and physio-developed exercises.
Our six-week PREP programme is available across all of Northern Ireland’s Health and Social Care Trusts and covers the following topics:
- What is a stroke?
- The benefits of exercise
- Emotions after stroke
- Food for life
- Lifestyle choices
- Fatigue and falls
PREP made a huge difference to me. It shortened the time I took to recover. At first I found the exercises very hard but now I can do them easily. After my two cycles of PREP I was walking without a stick.
