About Stroke

 

Experiencing a stroke can be devastating. It can leave a person with a permanent, life-changing condition. Some risk factors for stroke are uncontrollable, but certain practices can help prevent, limit, and even reverse stroke damage. Providers of senior healthcare have the responsibility to know the signs and symptoms of stroke and to be able to perform quick stroke assessments and respond appropriately. You have the responsibility to prevent stroke, to educate others, and to help those who have had a stroke recover. Perhaps the most important stroke-related work you perform is to help the individual live as independently and as normally as possible.
