Today, the Chief Scientist Office and the Stroke Association celebrate a partnership that will build on the excellence of stroke research in Scotland.
West Hertfordshire Communication Support Service works with stroke survivors who are living with communication difficulties. Our service can bring you opportunities to develop communication strategies, help rebuild confidence and independence, and get you back to life after stroke.
Reading and Wokingham Stroke Recovery Service provides high quality information, practical advice and emotional support following a stroke. Whether you are a stroke survivor, carer or family member, we will begin working with you after a stroke. We will continue to provide the support you need, both at home and in the wider community.
If you or someone you care about has had a stroke, our service can provide practical advice, essential information and emotional support. We’ll work closely with you to assess your needs, set your own goals and support you to achieve them as you recover. Our service supports people who are more than 6 months post the date of their stroke.
