Stroke is the leading cause of acquired neurological disability and a major public health concern. Post stroke rehabilitation is essential for limiting the risk of recurrence, reducing impairments and allowing the patient to maintain a good level of autonomy. For several years, we have yielded reliable results demonstrating the beneficial effects of a post-stroke care program (sub-acute or chronic). However, following a stroke, not all patients benefit from in-patient rehabilitation. Moreover, the duration of this program, usually undergone before discharge, as well as post discharge care, varies greatly depending on the country. In this Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH), we would like to highlight the studies that explore home care. We welcome manuscripts from different disciplines, including rehabilitation medicine, epidemiology, intervention studies, risk and health impact assessment. New research papers, reviews, case reports and brief papers that address any of the aforementioned topics are welcomed in this Special Issue, particularly those that combine a high academic standard with a practical approach to provide optimal solutions for home- or community-based stroke rehabilitation.
