I hope you all are doing well and taking good care of yourselves! I was referred to this resource from a kind stroke community member from the US.
I'm currently a graduate student studying occupational therapy, and I've been really interested in learning more about what stroke survivors wish they had after going through health services like outpatient rehabilitative therapy!
I'm trying to develop a resource guide for stroke patients who have gone through 6+ months of outpatient occupational therapy services and are ready for discharge. A lot of the time, patients don't want to leave therapy, or they want something routine to continue (community center, recreational activities, etc.) After developing a routine and a relationship with their therapists, it's hard to continue that after discharge.
My question to the stroke community is: What would you like to see in this resource guide? Would you like information on locations of where to go, forums to read, websites to access? Is there anything you wish you knew before or wish you had that would be beneficial to include in the resource guide?
Please feel free to share any resources/links in the comments here; I so greatly appreciate you all in this community! Although I understand that this forum is a resource based mainly in the UK, I believe that stroke community and togetherness has no boundaries and I would love to share any helpful information to patient's in the states as well!
Thank you all so much and I hope everyone is taking good care!!
