SSF PSDD Presentation – Coming home

Surviving a stroke is the easy part,
however,
for the survivor and their family,
the reality of living with the burden
of stroke when you return home,
herein lies the challenge!

Surviving a stroke changes your
dynamic and circumstances in life.
Sadly, there is a
major disconnect between
hospital care and post-discharge care
….until NOW!

information and understanding (manual)
• Cost of required and appropriate rehab
• Cultural beliefs and general myths
• Lack of transport
• Lack of awareness
• Lack of available support structures
• Lack of National registry, resulting in survivors
being lost in the wind
