We are here to help
Tendring Specialist Stroke Services is a registered charity, originally set up over 30 years ago.  We are partly funded by the Care Commissioning Group (previously partially funded by the now defunct Primary Care Trust).  We provide help and support to people affected by stroke.  We do this in a number of ways:

We promote understanding of stroke and its effects.
We provide information about the effects of stroke on stroke survivors, their carers, and families.  We publish a range of booklets and leaflets containing information about aspects of stroke that will be helpful to those directly affected, plus professionals, and members of the public.
We support the individual, carer, and the family over a continuum.
We encourage independence, independent living, and the regaining of life skills as well as building confidence.
We raise insight and self awareness, self worth, and self esteem.
We encourage social and therapeutic activities.
We can access benefits advise, and also provide advocacy services.
We have a visiting consultant Physiotherapist and Speech and Language Therapist and work closely alongside other health professionals.
