Researchers at Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI) are inviting people who have had a stroke, as well as past or present carers of someone who has had a stroke, to help design a long-term recovery group for stroke survivors.
Dr Heidi Janssen, researcher and physiotherapist, who works for Hunter New England Health’s Hunter Stroke Service & Community Stroke Team, says the aim of the group is to help improve recovery and quality of life for people living with stroke.
Dr Janssen says most stroke survivors receive approximately 12 weeks of rehabilitation.
