 After Stroke - Realizing the Possible

 
​​​​
 
Every year, over 50,000 Canadians have a stroke - that's one stroke every ten minutes. Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in Canada, with over 300,000 stroke survivors in Canada. Stroke affects not only the survivor, but the entire family, loved ones and friends as they adjust to the ‘new normal’ which may include permanent physical disability, communication disorders such as aphasia and emotional difficulties, including depression.

The After Stroke website offers easy access to programs, services, education and information dedicated to supporting stroke survivors and caregivers. The site focusses on providing tools and services to stroke survivors during recovery to help them navigate their "new normal".
