Summary

If you're interested in listening to this audiobook, it likely means you or someone you love has had a stroke. Dealing with the onslaught of information about stroke can be confusing and overwhelming. And if you happen to be a stroke survivor with newly impaired language skills, it can be especially hard to comprehend everything your doctors, nurses, and specialists are telling you.

This audiobook consists of the top 100 questions that survivors and their families ask, with answers from the top physicians and therapists in the country. The questions start out basic but then get more specific to address different areas of recovery. And, for stroke survivors still struggling with reading comprehension, or for family members who are simply too tired to read long passages, there are takeaway points at the end of each chapter to help simplify everything.

Includes answers to frequently asked questions such as:

  • What is a stroke, and who is at risk for one?
  • What is the best diet for a stroke survivor?
  • How does group therapy compare to individual therapy?
  • What should a stroke survivor look for in a therapist?
  • How long will it take to recover, and how can stroke survivors maximize their recovery?
  • What can someone do to prevent having another stroke?

In this audiobook you'll gain a wealth of information, inspiration, advice, and support as you navigate your journey through stroke recovery.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Wonderfully written and narrated, rich source of important information for stroke survivors and their families

Such an important book for stroke survivors and family members. Our young, healthy son suffered a hemorrhagic stroke and we were completely unprepared...We listened to the audible version and will be purchasing a hard copy to refer back to as well.

Excellent book - great structure and effective format and pace

I bought and listened to this book while recovering from brain surgery to remove a tumor. While I technically didn’t have a stroke, I was experiencing similar issues. I found this book informative, engaging, and motivational.
