About the Author:

Cleo Hutton is the coauthor of Striking Back at Stroke: A Doctor-Patient Journal. She is a well-respected author, speaker, nurse and advocate for stroke awareness and recovery. She is also a stroke survivor.

Review:

"Hutton discusses adaptive equipment, emotional liability, and the impact on family.Most of all, however, she talks about getting through the day and night--pillow arrangement, television, naps, and how to play cards and slice vegetables safely.... Her book should reside on the shelves of public libraries, consumer health libraries, and private collections of physicians, nurses, and counselors; highly recommended."--Library Journal

"Hutton is a nurse and an encouraging facilitator, and she will get you back on your feet following a stroke. Her area of expertise is post-stroke recovery at home, and as a 12-year stroke survivor, she certainly knows her stuff... Hutton inspires hope, a vital soothing force in the road to recovery." -- Kirkus Reports

"For the new stroke survivor, this book is helpful in not only providing specific tips but also in showing how stroke recovery is a journey. For those who may be further from the event and actively seeking new paths to recovery new ideas are provided. If you looking for a gift for someone who is new to stroke or in the first few years following a stroke, this is a good option." --Stroke Network (Stroke Network 20100503)

Book Description Demos Medical Publishing, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The American Stroke Association estimates that about 4,800,000 Stroke survivors are alive today and about 700,000 people suffer a new or recurrent Stroke each year. After a Stroke: 300 Tips for Making Life Easier is addressed to this wide audience. Because hospital stays after a Stroke are often short compared to the lengthy period of rehabilitation and gradual return of function, After a Stroke concentrates on the home recovery process after a Stroke and assists those patients and their families in attempting to grow from patient back to person. The Author, a twelve-year Stroke survivor and Nurse, gives readers tips she learned and used herself during her recovery. She addresses topics such as communication, emotional liability, safety issues, personal care, relaxation techniques and intimacy issues. The tips included in this book cover everything from dressing, hair care, cooking and airline travel to using a computer and alleviating pain. Many activities that we take for granted can become a challenge after surviving a Stroke. After a Stroke describes in detail how to accomplish daily living routines, combat fatigue, enjoy recreational activities and how to turn Stroke deficits into assets. The book frankly discusses self-esteem issues and using humour as a healing tool. No subject is off limits. Hutton leaves no gaps in relating what families and fellow Stroke survivors need to know to live a full life post Stroke. With over 300 tips to assist Stroke survivors, this book offers tried and true methods for coping with the aftermath of a Stroke. It is a very useful reference guide and can be read in sections depending on the reader s area of interest.
