Life After Stroke
A stroke happens when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted. This interruption can be caused by the bursting of an artery or a blockage, which then fails to supply the brain with adequate oxygen and nutrients, therefore causing brain cells to die.
It is important to seek immediate medical advice and engage in a post-stroke rehabilitation program. These particular programs are designed to promote recovery of partially damaged brain cells and retrain skills which were affected.
Depending upon the severity of the stroke, some brain cells may not be repaired and long-term functional implications might be present.
Through the use of innovative adaptive equipment, assistive devices as well as daily living aids, a stroke sufferer has an opportunity to maintain as much of their independence as possible to lead an empowered and healthy lifestyle.
