Editorial Reviews

Stroke Network
"Hutton discusses adaptive equipment, emotional liability, and the impact on family.Most of all, however, she talks about getting through the day and night--pillow arrangement, television, naps, and how to play cards and slice vegetables safely.... Her book should reside on the shelves of public libraries, consumer health libraries, and private collections of physicians, nurses, and counselors; highly recommended."--Library Journal

"Hutton is a nurse and an encouraging facilitator, and she will get you back on your feet following a stroke. Her area of expertise is post-stroke recovery at home, and as a 12-year stroke survivor, she certainly knows her stuff... Hutton inspires hope, a vital soothing force in the road to recovery." -- Kirkus Reports

"For the new stroke survivor, this book is helpful in not only providing specific tips but also in showing how stroke recovery is a journey. For those who may be further from the event and actively seeking new paths to recovery new ideas are provided. If you looking for a gift for someone who is new to stroke or in the first few years following a stroke, this is a good option."--Stroke Network
