About the service

Our service provides high quality information, practical advice and emotional support in the aftermath of a stroke. We begin working with a stroke survivor, their carers and their family immediately following a stroke, and will continue to provide the support people need, for as long as they need it – within their own homes and back into the community.

This service offers:

  • life after stroke support
  • 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.
We can provide information, practical advice and emotional support.

Who is the service for?

This service is for families and carers of people affected by stroke, living in Gateshead.
