Information Pack

Our information pack is a practical resource split into different sections to help you carry on with life after stroke, here is some of the feedback we have received on our information packs:

“Your information should be given to every single stroke survivor in the UK and funded by the government because it’s such a wealth of information.”

Family Resource Pack

When Mum or Dad has a stroke, what do you tell the children?

This resource pack was developed with the help of children who have a parent who has had a stroke.  Available in different formats to cover the whole age range from toddler to teenager, it explains to children what is happening when their mum or dad suddenly has a stroke.  This can be an incredibly scary time for children and the booklets can be used as a starting point for some of those difficult conversations and to support children through the whole experience.

These resources can be ordered as a complete pack or as individual leaflets:

  • 1 Prompt poster to display on the ward
  • 2 Books (one for Mum being affected and one for Dad) with fold out pages and activities for younger children
  • 2 Comics (one for Mum being affected and one for Dad) for older children
  • 1 Magazine article for teens and preteens
