Christine and John’s Story
Someone in the UK has a stroke every five minutes. Chris had a stroke when she was 69. After 5 months in hospital she came home in time for her 70th birthday party. But her life couldn’t have been more changed.
Before her stroke Chris was enjoying recent retirement from a fulfilling career as a secondary school teacher. She had taught an impressive of mix of languages and maths.
Progress is slow and steady, but for Chris, each and every success is life-changing. She can now make her own cup of tea, and she can also use the toilet independently.
