How We Can Help

It’s normal for those suffering the trauma of a stroke to experience depression, anger or an inability to control emotions – even though this may be uncharacteristic. Plus, these behaviours can be compounded by anxiety and the side effects of medication.

Angel Care’s compassionate care staff are experienced in supporting stroke survivors in a range of ways, from planning your support with you, and your loved ones, to helping you to rehabilitate in your own home.
