Stroke

Stroke is a vague term that comprises of a multitude of conditions, from a large stroke that impairs functioning globally, to a small stroke that you may not even know happened.

 

Common symptoms following small strokes include:

  • Reduced attention
  • Distractibility
  • Slowed processing
  • Changes in mood or personality
  • Difficulties with multi-tasking

A larger stroke of the left hemisphere may result in significant changes with language, including difficulties expressing oneself or understanding others. There may also be changes in mood, especially depression.

 

Larger strokes of the right hemisphere have a different clinical presentation. This may include difficulties processing visual information. There may be some disinhibition, such as saying inappropriate jokes or spending excessively. There may not be insight into these behaviors.

 

It is important to identify a person's individual cognitive profile so an action plan, based on using the patient's strengths, can be used to compensate for potential difficulties in recovery. If you or a loved one has experienced a stroke, contact us today for a better outlook on tomorrow.
