Stroke changes everything, but so can your support.
Stroke is a leading cause of adult disability in the UK. Chris’s stroke cost him his ability to walk, speak, and take care of himself. For loved ones, the impact of stroke can also be huge. All of a sudden, they find themselves in the role of carer, often at the expense of their jobs.
Psychologically, the cost of stroke has been huge for Chris. He says, "I was angry with the world, and myself. Angry, sad and depressive. It was very tough at the time.” Watch the video to hear his story.
But thanks to the Stroke Association, there is hope for everyone. We’re dedicated to helping stroke survivors like Chris and their families with the emotional, practical and financial cost of stroke.
