Description

A stroke can alter two people’s lives in an instant. For the person who has had a stroke, simple tasks suddenly become difficult or impossible. For that person’s partner, life seems to revolve mostly around the stroke survivor’s needs. Such a drastic change naturally requires making many, sometimes taxing, adjustments. In this book, two experts in stroke recovery help couples deal with the impact of stroke on their lives and their relationship.

Drs. Sara and Jeffrey Palmer explain how to overcome three major challenges:

providing quality care for your partner
maintaining or rebuilding your relationship
caring for yourself as an individual

The book invites you into the lives of real couples who are themselves coping with these challenges. Their experiences model how you can improve essential aspects of your relationship, including communication, roles and responsibilities, and sexuality. A list of practical tips summarizes each chapter, providing a handy reference guide to meeting each day’s challenges.

More than just a discussion of the medical and practical aspects of stroke and stroke recovery, this book focuses on the emotional, psychological, and social consequences of stroke and the deeply personal side of caregiving. When Your Spouse Has a Stroke will relieve your burden and strengthen your partnership.
