After a stroke, around one in three survivors have difficulty speaking and understanding, which can be terrifying and isolating.
Watch stroke survivors and their families, who are coping with losing their words after stroke, tell us about learning how to communicate with their loved ones again.
Share on social media to help us raise awareness #Lostforwords.
Stroke can damage the parts of the brain that control language. But there is hope.
We’re helping people to learn new ways of communicating or even retrain their brain.
With your support we can:
- make sure help is available for people throughout their recovery
- continue running vital stroke communications support groups
- keep our information leaflets up to date and in print
- invest in innovative research to find new treatments for communication difficulties.
If you or someone you know has communication problems caused by stroke, we can help you get support.
