Beyond Stroke Online Resource

Beyond Stroke websiteBeyond Stroke was created to help survivors better understand the physical challenges many people face after they have had a stroke – not immediately after, when support tends to be the greatest, but weeks, months, and even years after the stroke has occurred. Beyond Stroke offers advice and reassurance as to how to best deal with long-term issues associated with stroke. 

The website includes useful information on the physical challenges caused by stroke and treatment options, where to find medical support and post-stroke specialists, personal survival stories and more. 

Visit www.beyondstroke.ca​ to learn more.
