A Stroke Information Guide (right) has been created via the work of the Lancashire and South Cumbria Stroke Programme.
The purpose of the Guide is to help stroke survivors and their families access good quality information that is specific to their needs.
To create the Guide, individuals from a variety of backgrounds, all passionate about the subject of stroke, provided their experience and insight into what information they thought would be useful for stroke survivors, their families and Carers, and anybody who supports somebody affected by stroke.
The Guide would be useful to support stroke survivors who are trying to regain their quality of life following a stroke and may be looking for information on how to prevent a further stroke. It is also a useful resource to help family members/Carers, as they may also have a lot of questions and are trying to make sense of what is happening and what the future may hold.
