The After Stroke Coordinator acts as a personal connection to hope and recovery by:

  • Working with the survivor to determine what is important to them, help them identify goals, and develop a personalized plan to help them achieve these goals
  • Connecting survivors and their loved ones with peer support (volunteers), resources, educational opportunities, and innovative community-based programs
  • Collaborating with discharge nurses and social workers to make the transition from stroke to recovery.
