A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. The consequences of this can vary depending on the type and severity of the bleed. All strokes are different and for some people the effects may be minor and not long-lasting, but others may be left with more serious problems that may make them dependent on others. A stroke can happen to anyone at any age and at any time. It is critical to know how you can spot the warning signs of a stroke either in yourself or someone else.
Has their face fallen on one side? Can they smile? or their mouth or eye may have dropped.
Can they raise both arms and keep them there, or have weakness or numbness in 1 arm?
Is their speech slurred? are they finding talking difficult, or confusing words?
Call 999 for emergency help immediately if you see any of these signs.
Our Care Assistants are all trained to care for stroke survivors and many have undertaken the QCF in stroke and acquired brain injury. Our care assistants offer practical and emotional support to survivors and their families and are able to liaise with the Stroke Association to ensure you are receiving the best possible care and support from the wider community.
