For any of our patients who have suffered a stroke, we would like to draw your attention to a new website which has just been launched and is the UK’s first comprehensive online service directory for stroke survivors and their carers.
www.strokeoflife.co.uk has been launched by Sian Brooks, a personal trainer specialising in exercise after stroke. She comments:
“I want to raise the profile of all the disciplines involved in neurological rehabilitation, by building this database. Due to the sheer complexity and geographical range of the Internet, it is becoming harder to find appropriate services. Stroke survivors have even more barriers to contend with.
A ‘Service Hub’ was required that could encompass all the services and disciplines available to assist rehabilitation after stroke and not just those available on the NHS or through charities”.
