The aim: To assess the effects of physical therapy on the general condition of stroke patients and their level of independence with respect to functioning after stroke. Materials and methods: The study was conducted in patients receiving care and rehabilitation at the "Tęczowe Zacisze" centre in Wola Kopcowa. The study group included both residents and out-patients undergoing rehabilitation at the centre. The study assessed a total of 25 patients (14 women and 11 men) aged 50 years and older and analysed the quality of life with respect to activities of daily living and mobility as well as the effects of physical therapy on functioning in stroke patients. Results: The use of comprehensive rehabilitation in study patients improved their mobility with respect to using the stairs and walking on a flat surface, improved their ability to perform self-care activities when using the toilet, and helped them eat meals, get dressed, and bathe unassisted. Conclusions: 1. Post-stroke rehabilitation should be comprehensive, complex, and adjusted to the current physical and motor abilities of the patient. 2. The number of patients undergoing early and comprehensive rehabilitation remains too low. It is important to inform the public at large about the possibility of receiving physical therapy after stroke.
