Life after stroke


Ongoing recovery is possible.  There is life after stroke. 

What will happen?

  • I will continue to work on improving my skills and abilities to participate in everyday life.
  • I will continue my home exercise programs
  • I will get involved with community programs
  • I will ensure my caregiver (if available) is managing and getting assistance when needed.
  • I will continue to make informed lifestyle choices to stay healthy and reduce my risk of another stroke.

Who will I see?

  • Community care providers will assess my ability to return to meaningful leisure or social activities, to driving and/or working if appropriate.
  • Ongoing visits with my care providers to reduce the risk of another stroke and ensure I am managing my concerns well.
