The Stroke Association - Isle of Man 

The Manx Stroke Foundation campaigned for a number of years to have the Stroke Association’s Family Support and Communication Support services here on the Island. After negotiations with the Government and the Stroke Association, UK, these services were introduced in 2005 and provide valuable support to people affected by stroke.

Stroke recovery service

The Stroke Association is available for all people affected by stroke on the Island and those who care for them, be they friends or family. Support can be offered from admission to hospital through to settling back at home or transfer to further care; we can liaise and advocate on your behalf with medical healthcare and social services professionals; and advise about benefits and local services and clubs to improve your well-being.

What does this service offer?

• Hospital and home visits from a dedicated coordinator

• Assessment to identify your support needs

• A personalised recovery plan to support your recovery from stroke

• Practical and emotional support for carers and families
