A short, easy-to-read guide for stroke survivors, produced by the Stroke Association. Packed with essential information to help people understand their stroke.
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.
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.
