When you have a stroke you need information you can trust. That’s why we produce high-quality information for stroke survivors and their families.
Communication aids for stroke survivors
A short, easy-to-read guide for stroke survivors, produced by the Stroke Association. Packed with essential information to help people understand their stroke.
A guide for family, friends and carers of people who have had a stroke, from the Stroke Association. Packed with information about the emotional impact of stroke, rehabilitation and recovery, and the support available to carers.
The most common effects of stroke are physical ones such as weakness, numbness and stiffness. This leaflet has information about some of the different physical problems that people may have after stroke, and what can help to improve them.
Around 85% of strokes are due to a blocked blood vessel in the brain, known as an ischaemic stroke. This guide explains what an ischaemic stroke is, what can cause you to have one, and how it is usually diagnosed and treated.
In this issue we celebrate our Life After Stroke Award winners - inspirational people like Charlotte who made an incredible recovery after a stroke at the age of seven. We also take a look at our campaign report, Feeling overwhelmed, which focuses on the emotional impact of stroke and outlines our work to make sure people get the right assessment and support.
