Stroke News summer 2015

August 2015

In this edition we're celebrating the courage of stroke survivors, including people like Pete, who recently won a Life After Stroke Award. A severe stroke left Pete with the communication disability, aphasia, but it also changed his whole outlook on life. He now volunteers tirelessly to helps other people who've had their lives turned upside down by stroke.

It's often the less visible effects of stroke, like aphasia, fatigue and emotional problems, that can be hardest to deal with. In this edition, our Stroke Helpline Officer, Rhian, offers advice to help cope with the emotional impact of stroke. We also hear the difference that attending a Stupport Group made to Paul.
