Through a range of activities and meetings, the Stroke Action Croydon provides essential peer and social support.
In stroke survivors, does the clinical effectiveness of 6 months treatment with fluoxetine depend upon its effects on synaptic plasticity in the brain? Can a drug used for depression help stroke recovery by changing connections between brain cells?
In this issue we celebrate our Life After Stroke Award winners - inspirational people like Charlotte who made an incredible recovery after a stroke at the age of seven. We also take a look at our campaign report, Feeling overwhelmed, which focuses on the emotional impact of stroke and outlines our work to make sure people get the right assessment and support.
The TALK - Support for People with Aphasia following stroke is a Stroke Association affiliated independent group that carries meeting and activities in Guildford, Knaphill, Walton on Thames and Ashford.
This year, June 2018, we have teamed up with other UK aphasia organisations and will be supporting the work of member organisations of the Aphasia Alliance, of which the Stroke Association is one.
Every year during June, organisations supporting people with aphasia work together to raise awareness. Around a third of people who have a stroke will experience aphasia. Greater awareness can mean easier communication and a better quality of life for a person with aphasia.
The Falmouth Action Stroke Club is run in partnership with dedicated volunteers and stroke survivors that are encouraged to take an active post in helping to run the club.
The group enjoys a number of outings and has a full and diverse programme of speakers, meals and activities.
