Stroke Association - Jersey
The Stroke Association’s Jersey Information, Advice and Support is a visiting service that helps families prepare for the changes that inevitably happen because of a stroke, and help them to cope physically and emotionally.
An Information, Advice and Support Coordinator may regularly visit hospital wards, or hospital staff can refer new stroke patients. In the community GP’s, district nurses and social workers can refer families.
To prevent strokes and to support everyone affected by a stroke. We do this through our information, rehabilitation and support services.
We also campaign to raise awareness of stroke and fund vital research into stroke prevention, treatment and rehabilitation.
In Jersey we have two members of staff who work closely with the island's Stroke and Speech and Language Therapy teams, providing a comprehensive long-term support service for stroke survivors, their families and carers.
