Overview

Stroke doesn't happen just to an individual, it happens to families, friends, and loved ones. Both HealthSouth and the American Stroke Association have long known this encompassing of stroke—it's pain, it's emotional damage, it's debilitating after effects—not only on the survivors, but the loved ones in its wake. No one knows more that when stroke strikes, you need support, information, and advice fast. Finding this information has become a reassuring reality in this newest edition of Living With Stroke: A Guide for Families. Here, stroke patients and their families, friends, and caregivers can find the newest facts and figures on cutting edge of neural plasticity, constraint therapy, and more. Here, too, in clear, easy to understand language, is the entire process of rehabilitation, as well as the mechanisms that can create a stroke. You will also find a wealth of detail on the emotional reactions families of stroke survivors experience—along with the insight, solid hope, and most important of all, hope.

Incl. warning signs/right & left-hemisphere stroke/the rehabilitation team/physical therapy/emotional issues/etc.

    A daughter in search of information for her dad.

    Having a stroke is shocking enough. You just want to help heal the one you love. My dad has SHS discribed in the book as a syndrome effecting his arm and shoulder due to his stroke. It's new to the therapists and research is needed. The book helps abit in this area. Thank you for giving the info. Your book and its info on SHS is being passed along. In fact, I've been asked to find and purchase 3 more copies of your book. We need to widen the search on SHS and prepare those who unfortunately have a stroke.
