PREVENTING A STROKE
Small changes in the way you live your life can decrease your risk of having a stroke. Start small and build upon your changes. Consult your health care team whenever possible to help you work through how to incorporate lifestyle changes.
Several useful resources have been developed to help understand stroke prevention:
- West GTA Stroke Network Stroke Prevention Poster
- Champlain Regional Stroke Network Understanding Stroke and TIA Prevention
- Toronto Stroke Network Updated Guide for Stroke Recovery which has a number of worksheets to help you incorporate healthy lifestyle changes.
