In this edition, we explore the benefits that simple lifestyle changes can make to reduce stroke risk and improve your health and happiness. We also take a look at communication problems and the latest research into vision problems.
In this edition we're celebrating the courage of stroke survivors, including people like Pete, who recently won a Life After Stroke Award. A severe stroke left Pete with the communication disability, aphasia, but it also changed his whole outlook on life. He now volunteers tirelessly to helps other people who've had their lives turned upside down by stroke.
Medical research is essential to develop new treatments and therapies for stroke so that patients in the UK can get the best possible care. Clinical trials are conducted to test whether a new medical intervention is safe and effective and these trials often rely on the participation of volunteer stroke survivors.
The Cwmbran-based choir's first concert was a resounding success.
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.
