Stroke Recovery Plan

 

Stroke Recovery Plan

Here’s how you can get direction and take control of your stroke recovery.

After Mark’s stroke his memory wasn’t what it used to be.

You see, it affected his ability to do the simplest of things at home:

  • Like making tea and toast for his partner in the morning.
  • For Mark, 3 years after his stroke,  he was also deeply anxious about walking in shopping centres as he was easily lost and disorientated. This meant for his partner, she was always ever present.

Mark and his partner’s view of the future was forever ambushed by his daily stroke symptoms. You’d likely appreciate it was hard to see tomorrow when today was so rough.  It was clear there was a loss of direction and loss of control

Mark’s story is his own as is your story.

No doubt, from the day of your stroke, there’s likely a change in your life.

For you this may include physical, emotional and or cognitive (thinking and memory) changes.

As a result there’s likely been a big shift in what you can do for yourself and this can affect people deeply.

Having a stroke needn’t be a life sentence of no recovery, no purpose nor direction. Too often we see people months or even years after their hospital and rehabilitation system experience, still struggling to get a sense of what action will be best for their situation.

Your rehabilitation journey started at hospital and at some point the services stopped. This may be 6, 9 or even 12months after your stroke.

The Stroke Recovery Plan was developed to help survivors and their families. People maybe like you who are dealing with the aftershocks of stroke and who want direction on what are the actions, tools and strategies to best help with their long term stroke recovery.

In the end, the aim of the plan is to help you and your family obtain more clarity about what actions will help you achieve a life that you want a life, more on your terms.
