Caring for a stroke survivor

A stroke survivor with carer or family member

My Stroke Guide has information and resources to help you look after a loved one who is recovering from stroke

When someone has a stroke, it affects every aspect of their life. And it does the same for their carers, family and friends.

If your loved one had a stroke very recently, you probably have a lot of questions about what stroke is and how you can best support them. In the coming weeks and months, you may also want information about what can be done to help your stroke survivor to live well within their new normal.

You can find all of this in our Information for Family and Friends page, along with links to other organisations who can support you and your stroke survivor.

A great place to find support is our forum, a lively and rich community of stroke survivors and their family and friends. It's a place where you can talk with people who understand what you're going through. You can sign up by clicking this link or the forum link in the menu.
