STARs – The effect of stroke on the person and their family

Real patients speak about the effect of stroke on themselves and their family.

Key messages:
1. Stroke can be a huge psychological adjustment for patients.
2. Families must adjust too. It is important they both support their relative and look after their own needs.
3. Involving a close relative in psychology sessions can help the family better understand these changes and support the patient. They also have the opportunity to ask any questions of the psychologist.
