iHOPE & Living After Stroke
Experience Our Survivor and Caregiver Resources
During the past year, readers have told us that they yearn for online resources to help with their stroke recovery. National Stroke Association has embraced this need and focused on creating tools that are easily accessible, free and convenient for you – all available from the comfort of your personal computer.
Both iHOPE and Living After Stroke include a series of Web presentations that focus on post-stroke lifestyle and medical issues. These resources allow you to learn at your own pace and access information about stroke that is specific to your needs.
We hope these new Web-based resources bring inspiration, knowledge and hope to your recovery experience.
iHope is a series of pre-recorded Web presentations and live “Ask the Experts” Q&A sessions that cover topics such as depression after stroke, how to deal with different types of pain and mobility problems, and the importance of self-care for caregivers.
Living After Stroke is a group of pre-recorded Web presentations that aim to make your daily life after stroke a bit easier. You will learn how to make kitchen, bathroom and total home modifications for safety and comfort, what transportation options are available and how to recover and adjust emotionally.
Visit www.stroke.org/surv_ed or call 1-800-STROKES for more information about these two new resources.
