Life after stroke: caring for the caregiver, 29 September 2021
10:00 - 11:30 (CET)
The emotional, physical and psychological effects of stroke can extend beyond the stroke survivor and their relationships with those closest to them are altered by the illness. Informal caregivers may struggle to adapt to their new role which can aggravate existing difficulties.
This session will explore some of the challenges faced by informal carers and the impact that caring for a stroke survivor might have on their life. It will also focus on predictors of wellbeing and resilience in carers, and showcase good practice examples of carer support and how to implement them.
This event is for stroke survivors, families, carers and healthcare professionals.
