Stroke Recovery is a complex thing so it was not at all obvious how I could make a difference. Fine, my mission is to improve post-stroke outcomes and lifestyles but I puzzeled – HOW?
In 2015 I established Stroke Recovery Foundation to improve post-stroke lifestyles and outcomes. For me, the bad news was having a stroke 20+ years ago. The good news – insurance was different than it is today. I had much more therapy of all kinds than is available today to the very great majority of survivors and their caregivers. My therapists, in many cases were my coaches and many became friends.
Today, its not the same!
