Stroke Support Service - we are here for you

The Irish Heart Foundation has launched a new telephone and online support service for stroke survivors who have been recently discharged from hospital during the coronavirus pandemic.

New telephone and online support for stroke patients

Returning home after stroke is difficult at any time, but never more so than during the COVID-19 pandemic. So, stroke patients being discharged from hospital now need extensive extra support.

There are also a number of stroke patients who may need ongoing support in their recovery irrespective of whether they are newly discharged or not. Therefore the service is open to anyone post-stroke regardless of where they are in their recovery journey.

The new telephone and online stroke support service has been developed by the Irish Heart Foundation and the HSE and is aimed at all stroke survivors who need support.

It is manned by a dedicated team of specialist staff at the Irish Heart Foundation who are available on the phone and online to answer any queries stroke patients may have and provide advice and information based on each individual patient’s need.

Call 01 6685001 or email support@irishheart.ie  Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm

Our phone support team is made up of nurses and professionals who deliver specialist support to stroke survivors every day. It also includes stroke survivors and carers who have first-hand experience of the impact of stroke.

The purpose of the phone check-in service is to assist stroke patients to live as well as possible at home. And to help make sure their healthcare and practical support needs are met.

We want every stroke survivor to know we are here for you.

We will provide any information or advice you require, answer your questions about recovery from stroke, and help ensure you have everything you need to keep yourself safe.

All our dedicated callers know what you’re going through and they can help

These services have been shaped by stroke survivors telling us what help they need. Many have described them as their lifeline. Any time you need help to cope, we are just a phone call, or a mouse click away.
