About this service
Every year over 1,500 people in Glasgow City are discharged after a stroke. A proportion of these people will become housebound as a result of their stroke and at high risk of feeling isolated. They are often not able to leave their homes to attend follow up appointments, take part in exercise in the community or go shopping. They have a higher risk of declining health, secondary strokes, low mood and depression. We are visiting those who are housebound to introduce people to our services and support to help them reconnect with their community.
The project has been funded by The Alliance for one year. During that time, we will be ascertaining the needs of people who have had a stroke and are housebound to inform further activity.
