Nichola Browning shares her experience with calling StrokeLine. Nichola's daughter Beth had a stroke at the age of 19.
"The first time I made contact with StrokeLine was quite a lot down the track with our daughter's recovery. I spoke to a wonderful health professional, who was really understanding and compassionate on the end of the phone. We just talked through everything that we could, so that I could help support Beth and learn a little more about what could help.
It's extremely valuable for families in particular when stroke happens to your loved one. Having somewhere to reach out, when that other person might not have the capacity or energy to do so. Not feeling isolated in it and alone with your worries. It's really important to reach out and StrokeLine are absolutely there for us all to speak to.
I actually wished I had called StrokeLine far sooner." - Nichola, mum of a young survivor of stroke
