A common concern for people who have had a stroke is that resulting problems such as walking, co-ordination or communication difficulties might make living in their own home difficult. But with the right support, some changes and adaptations, most people who have had a stroke can and do continue to enjoy living independently at home.
In this brochure we briefly outline the main stroke symptoms and then consider what you can do to your home to make living with these more manageable. We describe the range of alternative housing options and offer suggestions about where to find more detailed information, advice and help for your particular situation. These notes are particularly for older people who may be considering their long term housing and care options anyway.
