Patient and Family Resources

Caring for a loved one after a stroke can be a difficult and emotionally taxing job. Few people are prepared to take it on. A stroke caregiver can be a spouse, family member, friend or professional. Learn about resources you may find helpful during your recovery or while you assist a loved one with his or her recovery.
