Supporting life after stroke: A review of services for people who have had a stroke and their carers – Care Quality Commission (UK) – January 2011

“Stroke can be a devastating and life changing event for people. However, our review found that the extent to which they are supported to cope with life after stroke varies significantly across England. The best services are built around the individual – with their care being planned to take account of the needs, circumstances and preferences of the person who has had a stroke, their carers and family. People in these areas are more likely to experience a smooth and coordinated return home from hospital and to have access to a broad range of services to help them recover from, and cope with, the effects of stroke.”
