A stroke in the brain stem can cause the very rare condition of locked-in syndrome, where the person is conscious but unable to move apart from their eyes.
Some strokes are very serious and can cause a coma, or may lead to someone dying. This guide looks at the care given to someone in a coma, and how end-of-life care can support someone who's unlikely to recover.
This research will produce an assessment of functional, everyday reading. The assessment will help therapists working with people with aphasia to identify why the person is finding it difficult to read and monitor the effects of treatment.

Donations or tribute funds in memory of a loved one are a special way to help fund vital stroke support and research.

This project will focus on people with aphasia who have difficulty understanding the specific meanings of everyday words. As a result they may not be able to understand what people are saying, so communicating in everyday situations is hard.
People affected by stroke are experts in what it’s like to experience and live with stroke. Find out how you can get involved to help shape stroke research in the future.
