Support for Carers of Stroke Survivors

We are here to help

Becoming a carer for someone affected by stroke is an enormous undertaking physically, mentally and emotionally.

Now more than ever in the era of Covid-19, it is important that you take care of your own mental and physical health so that you can best manage the demands of life as a carer.

Please know that you are not on your own.  You can contact our nurses by phone or email Monday to Friday from 9 to 5 if you need support. Please call 01 6685001 or email support@irishheart.ie

You are also welcome to join our private Irish Heart Foundation Carers’ Facebook Group where you will find useful information and resources as well as a safe space to share your thoughts and concerns with others in the same position.

We also offer free professional counselling by phone or video chat (limited places remain for this service).

For more information please email carers@irishheart.ie or contact the Irish Heart Foundation on Tel: 01 6685001.

You can also download our free Carers’ information booklet. This  booklet entitled “Caring for someone affected by stroke,” includes information on stroke and how it may affect your loved one, tips on caring for someone close to you who is affected by stroke and yourself, practical matters, benefits and legal questions, how to look after yourself, other carers, and family members as well as a list of additional resources.
