Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 14985 posts. Searching is done in the search box in upper left corner. I blog on anything to do with stroke.DO NOT DO ANYTHING SUGGESTED HERE AS I AM NOT MEDICALLY TRAINED, YOUR DOCTOR IS, LISTEN TO THEM. BUT I BET THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET YOU 100% RECOVERED. I DON'T EITHER, BUT HAVE PLENTY OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTOR TO ANSWER.
Deans' stroke musings
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areeffective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.
What this blog is for:
Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Aging With Disability for Midlife and Older Adults
analysis brings “aging with disability” into middle and older ages. We
study U.S. adults ages 51+ and ages 65+ with persistent disability
(physical, household management, personal care; physical limitations,
instrumental activities of daily living [IADLs], activities of daily
living [ADLs]), using Health and Retirement Study data. Two
complementary approaches are used to identify persons with persistent
disability, one based directly on observed data and the other on latent
classes. Both approaches show that persistent disability is more common
for persons ages 65+ than ages 51+ and more common for physical
limitations than IADLs and ADLs. People with persistent disability have
social and health disadvantages compared to people with other
longitudinal experiences. The analysis integrates two research avenues,
aging with disability and disability trajectories. It gives empirical
heft to government efforts to make aging with disability an age-free
(all ages) rather than age-targeted (children and youths) perspective.
