When a loved one has suffered a stroke, it can be a very stressful time for the entire family. At EvergreenChoice, we strive to help patients and their loved ones adapt to life after a stroke. The difficulties these patients face range from minor setbacks to major complications, and it’s important to be prepared for all circumstances.
Depending on which area of the brain has received the most damage during a stroke, as well as how much was damaged, the degree of disability will vary. While every patient is different after a stroke, there are five general areas of disability that may affect your loved one: movement control, language difficulties, memory loss, emotional disturbances, and physical pain.
