Bucks Stroke Support is a county-wide service provided by the Stroke Association and Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust. The service provides comprehensive support from hospital discharge for as long as is required in the community, and includes an ‘Expert Stroke Programme’ which can be accessed by stroke survivors and carers.
Our core service provides high quality information, emotional support and practical advice in the aftermath of a stroke. We begin working with a stroke survivor and their family immediately following a stroke, and will continue to provide the support people need, for as long as they need it – in hospitals and care homes, within their own homes and back into the community.
If you or someone you care about has had a stroke, our service can provide advice and support to help stroke recovery. We’ll work with you and people you care about to identify your support needs and plan how these will be met, enabling you to make the best possible recovery.
Our Communication Support Service works with stroke survivors and their carers who are living with the effects of communication difficulties, to create opportunities to develop communication strategies, help rebuild confidence and get back to life after stroke.
Funded by the European Union (EU), a new international study called PROOF will investigate whether high-dose oxygen therapy can reduce the effects of stroke.
