Sleep After Stroke and Treatment After Stroke

Stroke is a serious condition with long-lasting effects. One of these long-lasting effects is poorer sleep because of the stroke. Sleep is very important in both mental and physical health. This study aims to find out how stroke survivors feel their sleep is following a stroke. We also would like to know how stroke survivors feel about their treatment options. The study may help inform medical professionals about treatment options for stroke survivors.
