Having a stroke is a life changing experience both physically and mentally and having the right type of support and positive encouragement will enhance the survivor’s recovery journey and enhance their general well-being.
Regular followers know that I prefer and often refer to stroke victims as survivors as that is what they are. Strokes not only affect the elderly by the way that is a myth and sadly young people also experience them and aside of having to recover are often met with a negative response.
Having a stroke does not mean that one’s life is over and with the right support and positive advice and input recovery can be much faster than even some consultants will predict.
Later this month Coffee mornings are being held to raise awareness and funds so look out for them in your area and please attend. Alternatively consider making a donation to The Stroke Association who do amazing work.
Stay fit and healthy and remain positive…always.
