The Young Stroke Support Worker (YSSW) is a qualified Occupational Therapist who has specialised in stroke rehabilitation. The Lanarkshire service is managed by Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland (CHSS) in partnership with NHS Lanarkshire.
The Young Stroke Support Worker visits with patients and families at home. On the first visit short and long term goals will be identified / agreed and these will be addressed and worked through on subsequent visits.
For the stroke survivor and their family the journey through stroke illness can carry on long after hospital based rehabilitation is completed. The YSSW is community–based with intervention taking place post discharge from hospital.
For more information about this service please contact Anne Armstrong, Young Stroke Support Worker:
