When a stroke occurs, life can change in an instant. Stroke survivors deal with a flood of emotions, along with physical limitations. Survivors often suffer grief and sadness. Depending on the severity of the stroke, neurological damage can drastically alter one’s quality of life.
Recovering from a stroke can be one of the most difficult obstacles you or a loved one have ever faced. The best things you can do are seek help for symptoms of depression and anxiety, spend time with family and friends, maintain your quality of life by staying active and doing things you enjoy, and most importantly, make the most of your rehabilitation.
