A guide for family, friends and carers of people who have had a stroke, from the Stroke Association. Packed with information about the emotional impact of stroke, rehabilitation and recovery, and the support available to carers.
Stroke can happen to anyone, including children. The causes of stroke for children are very different from those for adults. This guide explains what can cause stroke in children and how it is treated.
Stroke survivors Lorraine, David and Andrew share their experiences of aphasia and how they are finding new ways to communicate, and we celebrate the achievements of our Life After Stroke Award winners.
The Stroke Recovery Passport can help you to explain how a stroke has affected you, what your goals are, about your life, and how people can help you to recover. As a communication aid, it is suitable for health and social care professionals, friends and family, and anyone you meet.

This will help carers and professionals learn how to best support you. The communication licence can also be taken into hospital and kept with your notes or by the bed.
If you are thinking about your work options after a stroke, this guide can help. It contains information on your rights at work, retirement, changing career, and volunteering.
