Nature and Context

Patients who have suffered from a stroke need all sorts of care and resources during recovery, including exercises to contribute to physio, occupational and speech therapy, a map of local medical and social services, and a library of relevant publications. These things are often expensive and that price tag prohibits many from receiving the care they deserve.
