Abstract

Many survivors are being told, or like myself, have been told years ago, that their recovery occurs within a few months, or a year, at most. So many have been told that! However, from a survivor perspective “who has walked the walk” that notion is incorrect, it is pure malarkey! In fact, the notion, when expressed, becomes a barrier to stroke recovery, as it is a most depressing thought. Imagine, you are on a recovery time clock which daily ticks away, and when it goes full circle your recovery is over. It contributes to a self-fulfilling prophesy and has been the reason that so many survivors do not maximize their recoveries. Somewhat cynically, we also believe that it becomes an excuse to terminate reimbursed therapy. Why spend if it is for naught! Our Foundation’s approach is to assist the survivor and their caregiver partner to create a new and rich post-stroke lifestyle which emphasizes continued recovery progress. To that end, we have innovated a concept we call. The Pillars of Stroke Victor Recovery. From personal experience, ours, and other motivated survivors’ – we define the many strategies and steps required to improve recovery, and therefore going forward lifestyle. We encourage personal exploration, and through our educational initiative, Succeeding in Your Stroke Recovery provide a roadmap to new post-stroke opportunities. Activities such as music, art, horseback riding, photography, and others, are but a few data-based activities which survivors can utilize to continue their progress. Stroke recovery is a life-long journey, one that can be full of new and unique opportunities for growth if we survivors have the knowledge and awareness to proceed. We applaud, support and encourage the conference organizers to continue to move forward with lifestyle oriented post-stroke education and activities.
