My Stroke Guide
My Stroke Guide is an online support tool, designed for stroke survivors, family members and carers. Easy-to-read information, advice and videos from the Stroke Association explain everything you need to know about stroke. You can also connect with other stroke survivors, to ask questions and to find out how they manage their recovery.
