Here you will find information about what a Stroke is and how it can affect your life. There is information about how a stroke is recognised, what you may expect to happen in the hospital if a stroke is suspected, and the type of care which will be available to you.
There is a section on medication, living with Stroke and information for your carer.
There is also information about local services and resources that may be able to help you. We also have a section dealing with Frequently Asked Questions which may be able to answer some of your concerns.
A handy booklet has been produced which sets out all of the facilities and help available to patients who have been discharged from hospital in the Kent and Medway area, following an Acute Brain Injury. This booklet is printable, and also has blank pages for your own localised and personal notes. You can access this booklet here.
