About this service

East Berkshire Stroke Recovery Service provides high-quality information, practical advice and emotional support following a stroke. Whether you are a stroke survivor, carer or family member, we will begin working with you after a stroke. We will continue to provide the support you need, both at home and in the wider community. Our service also offers six-month post-stroke reviews to people across East Berkshire.

This service offers:

  • Coordinated support throughout your stroke journey.
  • Home visits.
  • Leaflets, factsheets and information about Life after Stroke Grants and benefits.
  • Help with returning to work.
  • Assistance with accessing local leisure and social activities.
  • Support for carers, and links to other organisations and networks.
  • A six-month review to establish if there are any health, medical, social and emotional needs that are still unmet at this time.

Who is the service for?

This service is for stroke survivors (including TIAs/ mini-strokes) of any age, and families and carers of people affected by stroke, living within the boundaries of East Berkshire, including Windsor, Maidenhead, Ascot, Slough, Bracknell and surrounding villages.
