The Charter for people living with stroke in Scotland aims to improve the experience and access to community services for thousands of people who have a stroke every year by arming them, their families, service providers and politicians with clear, evidence based information.
The Charter has been supported and endorsed by the Scottish Stroke Nurses Forum. Campbell Chalmers, Chair, Scottish Stroke Nurses Forum said: 'Rehabilitation, self-management and long-term support from stroke is essential to ensure people affected live as healthy, active and independent lives as possible. The Charter enables people by ensuring awareness and understanding of the care and support services which should be available'.
Stroke is a life changing experience. In 2012, around 12,500 new cases of stroke were reported in Scotland. The resulting brain damage can affect the visual system causing problems with visual perception, eye movement disorders, low vision and visual field loss.
