This book tells you what care should be provided after stroke. It is written for people affected by stroke and their carers. It's a short version of the detailed National Clinical Guideline for Stroke (5th edition).
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 child birth. We also have advice on everything from driving after stroke to reducing blood pressure and the benefits of befriending.
