Recovery after stroke is a lifelong process. The path to recovery includes the opportunity for stroke survivors to self-manage their health and life.
Self-management includes medical management, role management and emotional management. This involves working in partnership with your health care team, to provide you with the knowledge, understanding and resources to make informed decisions for your own well-being.
Your support team includes health care professionals, online service providers, family, friends and caregivers. These support systems will help provide emotional, social and physical support.

As employers, participants are fully responsible for managing their own employees within a budget that is developed on an individual basis.
