We are an online stroke support organization and are available to India, all of Asia.
The Stroke India provides online support to stroke survivors and stroke caregivers of stroke. We have found that a stroke caregiver or another member of the stroke family will seek out a web site looking for information about stroke after their loved one has just had one.
Not only do we have dozens of resources for stroke survivors but we also have many resources for the stroke caregiver.
On one hand, the stroke survivor is usually looking for information about stroke or is trying to connect with other stroke survivors. Many stroke survivors are released from their rehabilitation hospital and then might not have a local stroke support group, transportation to the group, conflicts with the meeting schedule.
On the other hand, the stroke caregiver needs information and lots of it. Stroke caregivers are faced with a multitude of decisions. Many stroke caregivers are totally stressed out between having to make immediate decisions, searching for information and then needing a medium to vent, rant, rave and to ask practical questions.
Our support services include daily chat sessions, blogs and a message board with several forums relating to topics important to stroke survivors and stroke caregivers. Our information resources include a ( to be included) monthly newsletter, book shop, articles, links, webcasts and a Stroke Caregiver Handbook that our experienced stroke caregiver members have written for the new stroke caregiver.
Our forums are available to anybody with a computer but may not be able to make it to a real life support group. We use the net to connect with others, however we can.
So who are we? We are people from around the India or Asia who have survived a stroke that want to do something for our stroke survivors . We know that they cannot obtain the stroke support locally so we are here for them online.
