After a stroke, everyday tasks and hobbies can prove much more challenging. It's important to relearn some of your abilities and cope with any remaining disabilities so that you can live as independently as possible.

This guide explains how occupational therapy can help you to adjust to life after stroke by giving you the confidence and skills to perform daily tasks and learn new skills. It explains how to request occupational therapy, what to expect from it, and how long it will last.
