The Irish Heart Foundation is holding the first national Stroke Week on March 28 to 31 to help raise awareness of stroke, provide information and encourage everyone that there is life after stroke.
Our charity hopes that Stroke Week will help answer questions for stroke survivors and their families affected by stroke.
It may sound hard to believe but in fact, there are nearly 10,000 strokes in Ireland every year – that's almost 30 strokes happening here every day.
After a stroke, people often want to find out more about recovery and how to reduce stroke risks. But it is often difficult to get the information they need.
That is why the Irish Heart Foundation is holding a series of free public information evenings including in Radisson Blu Hotel, Galway on March 31, at 7 p.m.
The evening is a great opportunity for anyone with questions on stroke because it will give access to expert speakers including stroke consultants, therapists and a member of the Irish Heart Foundation will talk about our campaign for better stroke services.
