Beanie up for Stroke Awareness

Members of the ABI team wore their beanies to work during July and August in support of stroke awareness and provided a donation to the Stroke Foundation NZ to support their fundraising efforts for stroke awareness. Over 11,000 strokes are experienced each year in New Zealand. According to the Ministry of Health, Stroke is New Zealand’s second single biggest killer and the leading cause of serious adult disability. ABI Rehab are specialists in neuro-rehabilitation and provides stroke rehabilitation (variously funded) to support clients who have had a stroke both at inpatient and community rehabilitation settings from hubs in Auckland and Wellington.

ABI receive referrals for the Community Stroke Services in Auckland and Wellington from private paying individuals, from health insurers, DHBs and or NASCs. ABI has received support from philanthropic trusts and the Auckland University of Technology to deliver group programmes in Auckland. The purpose of the Community Stroke Services is as follows:

  • to increase physical abilities following a stroke
  • increase knowledge, understanding and skills for life after stroke
