Community Stroke Service
Our community stroke team will help you or a loved one recover and adjust to life following a stroke during the weeks and months after leaving hospital. We will support you, your family or your carer. We want you to gain your independence. Our team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, dietitians, psychologist, rehabilitation assistants, specialist nurses and Stroke Association family and carer support officer will care for you. We will support you to cope emotionally and make any necessary adjustments. You will be referred to our service from either the stroke unit in the hospital, your GP, social service or other health professional.
