Stroke Association (South East)

posted in: Good Causes | 0

The Stroke Association provides support for stroke survivors, their families and carers in Kent.  The organisation meets with survivors and their families when they leave hospital following their stroke and try to help them achieve the best possible recovery.  Many stroke survivors are faced with speech and mobility problems, anxiety and loss of confidence; this, combined with feelings of isolation and anger, struggles with loss of income can be very distressing.  The Stroke Association’s specially trained staff provide information and advice to help survivors understand what has happened and identify what their needs and goals are.
