This programme of work had been created by experts in stroke and vascular dementia working with people affected by both conditions. This research programme aims to find out who will develop memory and thinking problems after stroke, why this happens, and how we can treat these issues.
Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified psychological and cognitive (thinking and mood) problems after stroke as someof the most important areas where more research is needed. This Lectureship will investigate how common these issues are after stroke, how they change over time, and how these changes can be predicted.
This complete guide explains how a stroke can affect the way your brain understands, organises and stores information. It also talks about the kinds of problems this can cause and what you can do about them. It’s aimed at people who have had a stroke and their family and friends.
Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified problems with thinking and mood after stroke as some of the most important issues faced after a stroke. This Lectureship aims to test treatments to help stroke survivors with their cognitive (thinking) difficulties.
We know that organising a funeral can be a difficult time. It’s our hope that we can help to make the funeral collection process as straightforward as possible.
Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by disease or injury. This causes the structure of the brain to change, leading to the loss of some brain cells.
Many families choose to support the Stroke Association through funeral giving and in memory donations. This may be through setting up a Tribute Fund or other giving page, through cash collections or through donations in lieu of flowers.
This Lectureship will explore the link between tests that are used to assess cognition (memory and thinking) after a stroke and measurements of stroke survivor's functional abilities. It will also investigate how cognition and functional ability change over time.
The first chapter of our lived experience of stroke report looks at the hidden effects of stroke. While some effects of a stroke may be obvious, effects like emotional changes, memory loss and extreme tiredness are harder to see.
The Life After Stroke Awards is a celebration of the achievements of stroke survivors, their families, carers, healthcare professionals and supporters. Learn about our very deserving winners below by reading and watching their stories.
