We are looking for people to complete a survey that will tell us about their food choices after stroke. What are some of the challenges you face and what helps you to overcome them.

We are also looking for people to interview (online from the comfort of your own home) so that we can get some in-depth information about your experiences with food after stroke.

Food Choices After Stroke Survey

Eating well and enjoying food is an important part of living well and thriving. It can also lower your risk of having another stroke. We also know that changing eating habits is hard and that people need help to do this.

The problem is that programs designed to help people eat well aren’t developed with the needs of stroke survivors in mind.

We would like to find out more about what you are eating now and how eating has changed for you since your stroke so that we can develop programs to help stroke survivors eat well.
