We have recently endorsed a new book list for people living with long term conditions and their carers. Developed by The Reading Agency and the Society of Chief Librarians in partnership with charity and expert partners, the book list aims to help people better understand and self-manage their long-term conditions, including stroke.
The titles include health information, self-help and memoirs to offer guidance and factual support, covering topics like sex and relationships, knowing your rights and mental health and wellbeing.
You can visit your local library and take out any of the books for free.
