Survey to find out about the daily life of stroke victims

Sara Payne
STROKE survivors in Wales will be asked detailed questions about their daily life as part of the first survey of its kind.
The Stroke Association has developed the survey in a bid to find out what life is like for people who have had a stroke across Britain.
It is the biggest survey of its kind and will also ask detailed questions about what services stroke survivors are able to access and about their finances.
The Daily Life survey will be officially launched on Wednesday and will run until December 1. The Stroke Association is urging everyone affected by stroke in Wales to take part.
Ana Palazon, director for the Stroke Association in Wales said: “More people are surviving their stroke, this means that more of us are living with the effects of stroke in our daily lives. The Daily Life Survey will be an important tool in helping the Stroke Association to better understand the challenges stroke survivors face.”
