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).
Your brain is amazing! It has the ability to re-wire itself, allowing you to improve skills such as walking, talking and using your affected arm. This process is known as neuroplasticity. Plasticity means your brain's ability to change. It begins after a stroke, and it can continue for years.
