Web-Based Resource for Persons with Stroke and Caregivers

With the successful dissemination of 1000 copies of My Guide for Stroke Recovery since December 2015, the Toronto Stroke Networks responded to requests from persons with stroke and healthcare providers to adapt this resource to a web-based format. We are pleased to launch this mobile-friendly website It allows persons with stroke and family/caregivers to easily navigate information about common post-stroke topics and find practical strategies, video demonstrations and actionable solutions to common questions or concerns after stroke.  The layout and content of the website were designed to empower a self-management approach and facilitate community re-engagement.   The web design was grounded on global accessibility standards, incorporating elements of health literacy, adult learning principles, and contrast visibility.  Twenty-three persons with stroke reviewed the website to validate that it is comprehensive, user-friendly and useful.  For a general overview of this resource, click on the following link to access the Communiqué:  Web-based version of My Guide for Stroke Recovery.  We invite you to refer to the Stroke Recovery Guide Website Frequently Asked Questions to answer questions you may have.
