What You Need to Know About Stroke

As promised in my last post, here’s a gift from Helen at Home Care Plus in Ireland:

Count to two. In the amount of time it took you, somewhere in the world, someone had a stroke.

Now count to 10. By the time you reach 10, one of the 5 will have suffered a fatal stroke. That is how regularly strokes happen. It’s a frightening thought.

This and some other sobering statistics are contained in the below infographic about stroke.

It also gives several other points of highly important information such as:

• what to do if you see someone having a stroke
• how you can recognize a stroke
• what factors increase the risk of stroke
• what can happen as a consequence of stroke

As any stroke survivor will tell you, or indeed any of their friends or family, it is a life-changing event for those who manage to survive it.

Stroke survivors require a great deal of care after the event, sometimes to the extent that carers often work so hard that they risk damaging their own health through exhaustion and stress.

A great thank you is owed to Home Care Plus for creating this infographic, which is a hugely practical and user-friendly guide to stroke. It is definitely worth taking a few minutes to read, for when it comes to stroke, knowledge really is power.

Thanks Helen!  Sorry it’s taken me so long to post it.
