Stroke Care and the Caregiver

I was reminded today at the pool how much caregiving for strokes could be a whole page unto itself.  With typically half the body incapacitated, it offers unique challenges just as every other diagnoses does.  The good news with strokes is that latest research with neuroplasticity is that new neuronal paths grow.  That means there can be improvement–sometimes greatly so and sometimes just a bit.  But it takes repetition, repetition, repetition.  But don’t get discouraged.  In the meantime here are some helpful tips, resources and tools specific to stroke patient care.
