Emotional Support
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.
