In this section you can find out about the experience of stroke by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film.

Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 73 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as diagnosis, physical changes after the stroke and impact on work and family.

We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
