A stroke can be a catastrophic event at any age. Survivors of a stroke may be left with life-changing disabilities. But although people may have varying degrees of disabilities, there are ways of improving someone’s quality of life post-stroke.
What is a stroke?
It is always helpful to understand a condition first before looking at what we can do to help recovery. A stroke is basically an attack on the brain. It occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off, killing those brain cells. It will be the amount of cell damage that determines how badly you are affected. A stroke can affect you both physically and mentally.
