£68,638.00 raised of £320,000.00 goal
Help give a stroke victim their life back.
The Stroke Unit looks after more than 100 stroke victims and patients with symptoms every month. Your donations will help support patients on their long road to recovery through investment in new technologies and equipment.
A stroke is not something you prepare for.
- 1,400 patients expected to visit the stroke unit in 2017.
- More than 50% of stroke victims require on-going care over months or years.
Strokes usually come unexpectedly and can be life-changing events. Patients may spend weeks or even months on the Stroke Unit. Your support can help to provide patients and staff with the tools that they need to get better faster and to do so in the most comfortable way possible at an incredibly difficult time.
Whilst stroke is the biggest cause of disability in the elderly, 1 in 150 strokes happen to people under the age of 20, we want to make sure we the best facilities for patients of all ages.
What will your support help to provide?
We want to extend the space we have so that patients can have better access to therapies to aid their recovery. This will include outdoor facilities (special paving, raised flower beds and steps) that will help to improve the patients’ mobility and provide a more interesting form of exercise and environment for the patients.
Any funds raised over and above the target set will be used for the Stroke Unit at Frimley Park Hospital.
