For the first time in Canada, a resource guide has been developed for young adult stroke survivors and their families. Created by the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery and UTSP, this guide provides help with topics such as pain, changing relationships and returning to work.
While strokes are relatively uncommon in young adults, they have experienced a rise in incidence in the last decade. Stroke rates in young adults are predicted to double in the next 15 years.
The full report can be read below, and can also be found in our website’s ‘Patient Education’ section.
