After a stroke life is very different and you may need to make big adjustments and deal with daunting challenges. We provide a variety of services that will help you enjoy a better quality of life, return to your community and face the future.
This leaflet has information for anyone caring for a stroke survivor at home.
Paul Massey, aged 70, has received the Carer's Award at the 2016 Life After Stroke Awards.
Carer's Award sponsored by Co-operative Pharmacy
Paula and Ann met in 1992. However, two months after meeting Ann had a stroke which left her severely disabled. She was paralysed down her right side, unable to communicate and spent a year in hospital.
In 2005 Ross’ life changed in an instant. His childhood sweetheart, Zoe, had a massive stroke which left her with no movement of her right side, no speech and epilepsy.
People caring for stroke survivors face practical and emotional issues that can often be challenging, distressing, and sometimes require considerable sacrifice. Equally, it can be immensely rewarding. This award is for a person who continues to demonstrate their commitment to caring by providing personal, physical and emotional support for a stroke survivor.
Our service provides high quality information, practical advice and emotional support in the aftermath of a stroke. We begin working with a stroke survivor, their carers and their family immediately following a stroke, and will continue to provide the support people need, for as long as they need it – within their own homes and back into the community.
