This is a review of the summarised evidence behind early supported discharge in stroke, and our experiences. We found a reasonable amount of randomised studies, measuring rehabilitation on different quantitative scales. None of these studies showed, that patients were doing worse when receiving rehabilitation at home instead of hospitalised rehabilitation. Qualitative studies have shown satisfied happy patients but also challenges like loneliness among patients, workload for the relatives and transition within sectors, especially from hospital to primary care.
