In NHS Lanarkshire, our Stroke Specialist Practitioner is an occupational therapist whose main focus is on helping people return to work and employment and self-management.
“My CHSS nurse has seen me through, what has been quite a difficult and traumatic time, and with the help of his support I am now not only physically fit but also able to cope mentally with what lies ahead.”
“After her first visit I felt so much better informed and felt I now understood what had happened to me. I was very anxious but she was so professional, calm and reassuring that I felt more calm and confident. She was very helpful as I planned my return to work. I felt I learned more from her than anyone else. An excellent service for stroke patients.”
“I was very worried about the problems I was having and the Stroke Nurse was very reassuring. She explained everything in a way that I could understand and she understood how I was feeling. It was scary going home.
“She spoke us through the various stages as they appeared and made us aware of situations unknown or even thought about, she also gave us the most important thing of all – HOPE – when we most needed it, and time has proved her right. We now see a future living with a stroke.”
