Overview, Signs, Symptoms & Treatments
Living well following a stroke
Strokes can affect people in many ways depending on what area of the brain has been affected. There can be physical, cognitive (thinking), communication and emotional issues that the stroke survivor and those close to them try to deal with.
Common emotional issues following a stroke include, depression or low mood, anxiety, frustration and anger and feelings of isolation.
Improving emotional well-being can help with physical recovery and can also help you to lower the risk of having a further stroke.
