Stroke survivors often have very individual hopes for the future, in terms of the goals they would like to achieve. This research will develop and test a Goal setting and Action Planning (G-AP) approach to achieving personal goals through community rehabilitation.
South of Tyne and Wear Community Integration Service has a variety of groups to help people reconnect with their local community, and gain peer support and encouragement to access the resources on hand. There are several groups attached to our service, including a singing group, art group, creative expressions, and a bowls group.
Could an ARNI-based rehabilitation approach benefit stroke survivors?
Most stroke and transient ischaemic attack (TIA) survivors are asked to take medicines, which some can find difficult. However, taking the medicines prescribed after a stroke, or TIA, and following lifestyle advice can reduce the chance of another stroke by 80%.
As well as reducing independence, walking problems after stroke lead to lower daily activity, increasing risk of further stroke and health problems. A promising method of improving walking after stroke is through ‘auditory rhythmical cueing.’ which involves people walking to the rhythm of a sound beat.
Our work relies heavily on the generosity of our supporters. Our Community Fundraisers support our fundraising activities on a local level, to ensure we can continue to support stroke survivors.
