Each year in the UK, around 150,000 people have a stroke. A stroke can affect how your body works, and also how you think, feel and communicate. All strokes are different. For some people, the effects may be relatively minor and/or short-lived; for others, the problems may be more serious and/or longer-term.

  • supporting physical therapy
  • helping with cognitive difficulties making communication more effective
