WORD STROKE DAY 2018…UP AGAIN AFTER STROKE: Support for Life after Stroke

The World Stroke Organization has conducted extensive consultation, through member organizations with stroke survivors and care givers around the world on what matters most in relation to stroke treatment and recovery.

World Stroke Day Campaign 2018

Suffering a stroke can cause many significant and challenging mental and physical changes; but, continuing to work toward recovery is important.

Finding your new normal after a stroke won’t happen all at once—and that’s OK. Developing a new routine and tracking small, step-by-step goals will help.

Your medical team is there to help. Keep them informed of progress, concerns and changes to how you can support your own therapy.
