Higher living expense for stroke victims

25th November 2010

A survey of almost 800 UK sufferers for the Stroke Association found that a third of people who have survived a stroke face higher living expenses as a result.

Some 33% of patients were forced to make adaptations to the home to cope with disability or had to pay more to heat the house during the day because they could not work while 18% had suffered a loss of income since their stroke. And 52% of people employed at the time of their stroke said they had to give up work or reduce hours.
