About this service
If you or someone you care about has had a stroke, our service can provide practical advice, essential information and emotional support. We’ll work closely with you to assess your needs, set your own goals and support you to achieve them as you recover. Our service supports people who are more than 6 months post the date of their stroke.
Support within the first 6 months is provided by Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust Stroke Team, who can be contacted on 01494 426307.
This service offers:
- coordinated support throughout your stroke journey
- home visits from a dedicated support coordinator
- leaflets, factsheets and information about Life after Stroke Grants and benefits
- help with returning to work, and appropriate referrals to other services that can also help
- assistance with accessing local leisure, social activities and our network of support groups
- support for carers, and links to other organisations and networks
- a 12 month review to establish if there are any health, medical, social and emotional needs that are still unmet at this time.
