About the service

The Stroke Association’s Jersey Information, Advice and Support is a visiting service that helps families prepare for the changes that inevitably happen because of a stroke, and help them to cope physically and emotionally.

  • Befriending
  • The opportunity to practice communication and gain confidence
  • Information and advice
  • Practical and emotional support
  • Access to support groups
  • Advice on how to get help from health and social services as well as voluntary organisations
  • Assistance with access to local leisure and social activities
