Caring for Yourself and a Stroke Survivor

A stroke in the family can cause many shifts, whether it is relationship dynamics, finances, home modifications or role changes. As a spouse, sibling, child, grandchild or friend, you may be charged with providing daily assistance and support, plus planning and facilitating your loved one’s care. Because stroke is sudden and unexpected there is often little or no time to prepare. Caregiving is a difficult job that takes a physical, mental and emotional toll.

The guide will help you:
  • Prioritize tasks and develop a plan for the stroke survivor’s care.
  • Keep organized with resources, tools, templates and suggestions.
  • Adapt to changing roles and relationships after stroke.
  • Prevent recurrent stroke.
