Stroke Emotional Effects
Dr. Felipe de los Rios
Stroke can increase depression and anxiety, not only for the patient, but caretakers take on a lot of burden on this as well. Neurologist Dr. Felipe de los Rios gives some recommendations on how to deal with it.
In many centers there are possibilities to talk with a social worker, visit support groups, where not only victims can go, but also relatives. They meet with other people who go through the same situation and they offer support on how to deal with it.
