The Rose Centre for Stroke Recovery and Research

The University of Canterbury Rose Centre for Stroke Recovery and Research helps individuals living with swallowing and communication disorders to recover function or improve sufficiently to gain the best possible quality of life.

Established in 2014 at St George's Medical Centre through the generosity of Mrs Shirley Rose, who spent many years there tending to her husband who lived with a swallowing disorder due to a stroke, this state of the art facility extends research and clinical expertise to address all aspects of rehabilitation for people who live with such conditions.
