Relationship changes after stroke
A stroke can have a huge impact on family dynamics and relationships. Our Helpline Team share guidance on some of the practical things you can do to help.
How can I get a grant or financial help in a crisis?
When you are hit with a sudden health problem like a stroke, it can reduce your income or cause unexpected extra costs, but there is some help available. As well as benefits and help with health costs, there are some types of help designed for a crisis.
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.
