Patient and Family Stories

Stroke Rehabilitation presents patients and families with an unknown journey. Shared experiences provide hope, encouragement and determination at a difficult time.
The real life stories shared here are truly an inspiration to all.

Three stories are available for you to read including Jane's who provides us with a family perspective on the rehabilitation journey.
