Welcome to the Stroke Prevention Guide
There are many things you can do to keep healthy either individually or in combination. Below we feature a range of resources to help you make the best decisions to help prevent stroke and to recovery after a stroke.
The American Stroke Association website focuses on recognizing the warning signs of a stroke, information about different types of strokes and why they may happen, and life after a stroke including information for caregivers, healthy living, finding support and regaining independance.
The NHLBI provides consumer health information on a number of topics related to the heart, blood and lungs. The site also provides information on clinical trials, health initiatives, publications, and recent research. Many of the same topics that cover heart health are important for stroke patients as well and featured on this site.
The National Stroke Association provides stroke education and programs to stroke survivors, caregivers, and the healthcare community. All materials are freely provided in the belief that working closely with the community of survivors and caregivers will aid survivors in the recovery process.
