* The purpose of an initial assessment is to allow the treating therapist to conduct a few examinations, determine the patient’s goal and create a therapy plan best suited to the patient’s recovery.
** A progress assessment takes place at the end of a package and allows the treating therapist to quantitatively assess how far the patient has progressed and to determine whether further therapy is required.
Why should you start telerehabilitation now?
In times of COVID-19, we are bound by travel restrictions and necessary precautions, that said, our telerehabilitation service offering will help you to continue your recovery in the comfort and safety of your home ensuring seamless assistance and medical care. Patients with neurological disorders need continuous therapy to prevent deterioration of functioning. This can best be provided in the home environment these days using telerehabilitation services because the therapist can be virtually present at your home and work with you a one-on-one therapy session.
Regular interprofessional meetings
All data and therapist experience with the patient will be discussed in regular interprofessional meetings with the participating neurologist and the therapist. This will help to monitor the progress and optimise the therapy plan. This continuous adjustment based on objective data will provide you with the maximum improvement and is the heart of the cereneo therapy concept, for our inpatient as well as telerehabilitation service.

To start your therapy, you will be invited to do the initial speech and language assessment with our therapist using our secured video plattform ALVE. The purpose of the initial assessment is to allow the treating therapist to conduct a few examinations, determine your goals and create a therapy plan best suited to your recovery.

You will now start your speech therapy sessions and work together with your therapist towards your goals. Midway through your therapy sessions (depending on the selected package after 4, 6 or 8 therapy sessions) you will get time with our neurologist, to review your therapy, answer your questions and discuss therapy adjustments.
