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.
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.
In your spring 2013 edition, the Aylen family share their experience of coming to terms with the emotional impact of stroke after Andrew had three strokes at the age of 21. We also take a look at how pets can make a difference to your recovery.
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.
This leaflet provides information about our charity and how we can support you.
