Patient and Family Resources

Caring for a loved one after a stroke can be a difficult and emotionally taxing job. Few people are prepared to take it on. A stroke caregiver can be a spouse, family member, friend or professional. Learn about resources you may find helpful during your recovery or while you assist a loved one with his or her recovery.
 
Safe Driving Assessment

Safe Driving Assessments are available to patients who have experienced physical changes due to age or disability, such as stroke, arthritis or Parkinson’s, or mental changes, such as slower reflexes, memory issues and/or difficulty maintaining focus.
