Our Stroke Recovery Service provides tailored support commencing in the acute hospital setting and continuing in homes, by addressing the long term practical, emotional and physical needs of stroke survivors and carers.
The PRECIOUS project will examine the consequences of treating complications of stroke such as infections or fever or swallowing problems, all of which commonly occur in elderly patients. Failing to treat these complications often leads to a worse outcome overall.
Around a third of stroke survivors suffer from aphasia, a language disorder which can affect speech, comprehension and reading and writing skills. The Stroke Association has the skills and experience to help people with these communication disabilities.
