The Stroke Association has published specialised information on COVID-19 for people affected by stroke.

The resources are for all stroke survivors, and also form part of the charity's current work with new stroke survivors leaving hospital.

A dedicated web page includes information on coronavirus for stroke survivors which has been jointly produced by NHS England and the Stroke Association.

Other topics include staying healthy and avoiding infection, managing loneliness and isolation, emotional health and wellbeing while staying at home and staying active.

The Stroke Association has also launched a new blog series where people affected by stroke share their experiences of social distancing.

The series sees stroke survivors share how they are coping during the pandemic and their tips for others in the same situation.
