Stroke

INS helps people who have had a stroke in a number of ways: we offer individual sessions with a therapist or a rehabilitation assistant, as well as a varied programme of groups. Some of these are listed below. 

Long-term groups: sessions include exercise, symptom management, activities and social support

Live well with stroke: an 8 week group that helps you understand and manage the symptoms of stroke, via exercise and discussion

Stroke communication groups: a variety of groups for those whose speech or communication has been affected by stroke

Taking back control: an 8 week course which explores experiences of loss, frustration, anxiety and depression and helps you develop coping strategies for dealing with these

Fatigue management: a 4 week course where you can find out more about the causes of fatigue and learn strategies to manage this better

Memory: groups which focus on understanding how memory works and helping you to compensate for memory problems

Sleep: workshops covering sleep problems and potential solutions

Other groups: we run a variety of other groups such as hydrotherapy, gardening, art, creative writing, music and iPad
