Stroke: Conversations And Explanations

This 2 video DVD (with Educational Booklet) shows the emotional impact of stroke on the lives and relationships of 6 diverse couples, and provides useful information on the warning signs of a stroke, preventive measures, and recent developments in treatment and rehabilitative therapy.

Living After Stroke: Conversations With Couples

Six couples share their experiences on how stroke has affected their lives and their spousal relationships. These stroke survivors and spouse caregivers, in their early 40’s to late 70’s, candidly touch on the very real issues of intimacy, finances, fear of dependence, frustration, and the rigors of day-to-day care.

Stroke: Early Recognition and Treatment

Providing an in-depth exploration of stroke, this video identifies what a stroke is, how it affects the brain and body, and what to do in case of a stroke. Through interviews with 3 neurologists and comments from stroke survivors describing the onset of their strokes, the video gives further information on how to recognize the symptoms, and take proactive measures to reduce the likelihood of a stroke.
