STEPS emotional support - Northern Ireland
The STEPS service in Northern Ireland will offer emotional support and counselling for stroke survivors and carers/relatives, as well as a series of self-management workshops in partnership with Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke (NICHS).
Stroke recoveries at risk report
Our survey of almost 2,000 stroke survivors and their carers from across the UK found that the Covid-19 pandemic has affected every aspect of stroke treatment and care.
Around a third of stroke survivors experience post-stroke depression, and 20% will suffer from emotionalism within six-months of their stroke. Our Emotional Support service can help. If you are involved in planning or providing health and social care, your role is crucial in helping stroke survivors and carers deal with the emotional impact of stroke, which can be just as devastating as the physical.
