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.
In this edition, we look at the impact of stroke on families and hear from a carer, Adam, on how his family has remained strong after his wife had a stroke following childbirth. We also have advice on everything from driving after a stroke to reducing blood pressure and the benefits of befriending.
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.
