Stroke Recovery

“Our whole world changed after my stroke. Friends stopped coming around, we stopped going out, and we both got really depressed”
Stroke Survivor

When stroke patients complete rehabilitation following their stroke, there is no comprehensive guide recommending resources, what to expect, or what to do next. This leads to a tremendous burden on the spouse or caregiver, and isolation of the family and stroke survivor. Often, stroke survivors become depressed and ‘give up’ or are simply afraid to get out and try things.

Stroke Awareness Oregon is working to conduct a “needs survey” that will lead to a comprehensive resource directory for families. The purpose of the directory that is being developed is to help facilitate recovery and quality of life. Suffering a stroke does not mean the end of living but it can mean a new reality.
