Rehabilitation has been defined as the restoration of optimal physical, psychological, and emotional ability. The ineffectiveness of stroke rehabilitation in the light of these terms is highlighted, and the experience of people with stroke after discharge is described. Reasons for the apparent lack of true rehabilitation are suggested, and the dichotomy between health care professionals' and patients' goals and perceptions is discussed.
