Supporting those Caring for Stroke Survivors

There is recognition that carers and families are always affected by stroke:

‘even patients who seem to be relatively unaffected by stroke may need a lot of care because they can’t do the things that they used to do.’

Carers’ Group

These meetings are specifically for carers giving them a chance to meet informally with other carers on a regular basis.  Many carers say much of their support and information comes from other carers.

“It’s good to hear how others manage their problems and speak to carers who know what it’s like to be a stroke carer.”

This can be especially so for carers new to a role they did not expect to have to undertake.  The impact of stroke on the stroke survivor is just as great on the carer, it is important that neither feels alone with a stroke.

It would be so nice to have more carers benefiting from our meetings, which include increased self-confidence, sharing of information about the effects of stroke and ways of coping with difficulties, and the support of others who have had similar experiences. There is absolutely nothing to lose….just a great deal to gain.
