The following post is a bit different than our usual posts. That said, I thought it important, particularly for those dealing with aphasia to see how the survivor, a very intelligent gentleman, and some of those around him dealt with his deficits.
A stroke, even a minor one, can impact one’s life in many ways. As reported by the CDC, more than 50% of stroke survivors over the age of 65 suffer from long-term disability, with a prominent symptom being a reduction in mobility.
Stroke Recovery Foundation has recently rebranded its stroke coaching service to now be named Life Coaching for Stroke Survivors. Our focus is on improving the lives of stroke survivors, and by extension, their caregiver partner(s). There are many aspects which go into our program and one of them is creating your best self to have a constructive ‘New Life’. Kim Thomas, a healthcare blogger has been nice enough to author the following article which provides a nice introduction to this concept.
World Stroke Day is October 29th so I thought it might be helpful to review some basic information regarding Stroke. Whether you are a survivor, caregiver, family of a survivor, or supporter of our work, a review often leads to some information that maybe helpful. For myself, a review often leads to information I might not have known or forgotten, and this is quite a good article from the editorial staff at Pacific Medical Training.
