Adjusting to life after stroke can be a disorientating experience for stroke survivors and carers. And since the coronavirus pandemic, many are feeling more lonely and disconnected than ever.
After a stroke, people often want to know how their recovery could progress and what life might look like in the future. Right now, there aren’t many tools available to help health professionals to predict recovery, so we’re funding research to change this.
We’re at a turning point for stroke in Wales. The Welsh Government’s Stroke Delivery Plan ends in 2021, so we’re calling on them to develop a new national, strategic plan outlining their approach to stroke care for the future.
"I feel exhausted all the time since my stroke”. Sound familiar? You’re not alone - many people experience fatigue after stroke.
This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role as the ‘front line’ of HR and Health, Safety and Wellbeing, as the charity undergoes a period of change.
Alaire volunteers for our Here For You telephone support service to help stroke survivors and carers stay connected and help combat feelings of isolation.
This research can improve a camera-based computer programme so it can be used by health care professionals and stroke survivors to help in physical rehabilitation.
Stroke survivors often have problems with moving their arms and hands after stroke. This project will investigate whether a more intensive physical rehabilitation programme can improve arm and hand movement, which could ultimately lead to changes in treatment guidelines for stroke.
This research looks to understand if a new technological device, the Neuroplatform, can improve arm and hand movement in stroke survivors at early stages of their recovery.
Dr Banerjee aims to set up three studies to improve our understanding of how damaging proteins in the brain may increase the risk of stroke. This can lead the way for researchers to find out how we can help more people avoid damage to their brain caused by these proteins.
