Recovery Calendar: An Important Component of Stroke Recovery

Calendars are essential for just about anyone who wants to stay on track toward their goals . In order to ensure that we fit in all of the important “to-dos” and complete tasks essential to our well-being, writing it down and tracking our progress are often good strategies. You can also apply this technique to create your own recovery calendar after stroke. A recovery calendar can help you to keep up with a daily schedule, and also reward you with the satisfaction of crossing out the completed goals. It is a simple way to stay motivated and concentrate on recovery.

How Does A Recovery Calendar Work?

You can use several different formats (see some of our examples below). A recovery calendar should include your participation in rehab exercises, symptoms and functional improvements that you’re noticing.


Benefits of a Recovery Calendar

  • Use it to keep track of your progress
  • It helps you identify your positive and negative inclinations during the recovery process.
  • It allows you to accurately measure how much you have improved.
  • It helps you to concentrate on your goals.
  • It aids in distinguishing between the effective and ineffective methods.
  • It provides accurate records for assessing the past.
