This guide was intended/created for Personal Support Workers (PSW) working in Long Term Care in Ontario. However, anyone interested in stroke care can benefit from using this resource, including PSWs in the community, family members, etc.
The goal of the Smart Tips resource is to highlight common changes due to stroke and strategies for managing these changes. Each Smart Tips topic may be used individually or as part of a series. The Smart Tips can be printed freely as a full document or individually according to staff and organizational needs.
For additional information about any of the topics contained within, please contact your regional Stroke Network, or your healthcare provider.
