Stroke4Carers is a website for unpaid stroke carers, family and friends of anyone affected by stroke illness. It has been developed by Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland, The National Advisory Committee for Stroke, The University of Edinburgh and The Big Lottery Fund Scotland.
After consultations with stroke carers from across Scotland the following seven topics were chosen:
The website includes graphics, animations, film clips and quizzes so that the information is interesting and easy to use. Many of the pages have links to other useful sites, printable checklists and useful contacts for further local and national information.
Stroke4carers can be used at any stage after a stroke. If you are a new stroke carer or if you have been a stroke carer for sometime, you should find information to help you. From the days after diagnosis, discharge from hospital, to planning a holiday or setting up a power of attorney months or even years later. Health and social care professionals can also use the website to recommend to their patients, clients and stroke carers in their local areas.
