While some effects of a stroke may be obvious to others, there are some hidden effects that can also turn people’s lives upside down. It can be hard to know how to cope if you or someone you know is affected in these ways.

That’s why we have created a range of in-depth guides to help you deal with the hidden effects of stroke, such as problems with memory and thinking, emotional changes and fatigue.

You can download the guides, order print copies or listen to audio versions.

Our publications library

We also have a range of other useful information factsheets and guides, covering topics that include accessing benefits and financial assistance, tips for carers and returning to work after a stroke.

Take a look at our publications library. If you're not able to find what you're looking for, feel free to contact our Stroke Helpline for more information.

Read our findings on the hidden effects of stroke in the first chapter of our 'Lived experience of stroke' report.
