My Stroke Journey

Most people don’t know much about stroke until they or someone they know has one. My Stroke Journey will give you the information you need.

Made for stroke survivors, family members and carers, My Stroke Journey will help your transition from hospital to home and onto recovery. It's complemented by fact sheets about what you can do to recover from the effects of your stroke.

How to use My Stroke Journey

My Stroke Journey answers these questions:

  • What is a stroke?
  • How will my stroke affect me?
  • How do I take care of my health after my stroke?
  • What happens when it’s time to leave hospital?
