​​About After Stroke

After Stroke  logo
Over the last decade, acute care for stroke has improved dramatically, and as a result, more people are surviving stroke than ever before. Today, more than 405,000 people in Canada are currently living with the effects of stroke – and looking to rebuild their lives. 

That’s where After Stroke comes in. Established in 2002by March of Dimes Canada and operating in five regions across Canada, After Stroke is a personalized stroke recovery program that helps survivors and their families move forward after a stroke. 

We are the experts in life after stroke, from the early days in hospital, to the transition back home and all the changes and challenges that follow. We work one-on-one with stroke survivors and their families to build personalized plans for life after stroke, based on each person’s unique goals and needs. 

Through that process, we connect them with information, programs, services and support networks in the communities where they live, and walk beside them on the path to recovery. 

  • Our vision: A world where stroke survivors and their families can recover, live life with renewed purpose and optimism, and inspire others to do the same.

  • Our mission: We deliver person-to-person support, educational opportunities and innovative community-based programs that provide a connection to humanity, hope and life after stroke. We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke.
