CHSS No Live Half Lived Stroke Rehabilitation Support Services provide support for anyone who has had a stroke as they leave hospital, return home and resume daily life. People who have had a stroke will be supported and helped to relearn or adapt skills so that they can be as independent as possible.
Our service follows a pathway from hospital rehabilitation to either one to one rehabilitation or community rehabilitation support, or a combination of both. This can be delivered on a one to one basis or in a group setting. Our volunteering roles takes place either in hospital, home or community setting.
The aim of the service is to help people to overcome or cope with the damage caused by a stroke so that they can focus on enjoying life again. Our services provides communication support for people who are finding it difficult to speak, read, write, memory, thinking or understand what other people are saying.
We aim to provide a welcoming and stimulating environment which supports and promotes communication and encourages social interaction, enabling people to improve their quality of life, build confidence and self-esteem, and return to their communities with ease.
You don’t need special qualifications to be part of our team of volunteers just the ability to offer commitment, to attend training and have a desire to support people who have had a stroke, resulting in cognitive and communication difficulties.
As a volunteer you will enjoy interaction with service users, and you will be learning new skills in your spare time. Once fully trained, you will spend time with a matched service user within their home, making sure they receive planned support and assistance on a weekly basis.
