Help and Support

Your stroke is yours alone. But it takes a team for your recovery.

A stroke changes your life — and the life of your loved ones. Whether it’s in person, online or on the phone, lean on others who also have had an experience with stroke. From caregivers to support groups, your network can lift you up, inspire, give you hope — and help rehabilitate your body and mind.
