MEDIA REVIEWS
Stroke can be a terrifying experience for both the patient and the family. This wonderful little book explains everything clearly and will I am sure both educate and reassure families who have to live through a very difficult experience. -- Tony Rudd CBE, Professor of Stroke Medicine Kings College London, National Clinical Director for Stroke NHS England, London Stroke Clinical Director
This is a wonderful book which tells the story of Granddad Fred and his stroke. It provides a child-friendly explanation of a complicated condition with unfamiliar problems in very simple terms, which may be useful for adults as well. The book treats the topic with sensitivity and warmth. It explains the 'FAST' campaign and underlines the importance of getting someone with a suspected stroke to hospital very quickly. It also explains why the stroke may have happened, the problems Granddad has afterwards and the professionals who help him and Joan with rehabilitation. The illustrations bring Granddad Fred and his stroke to life. -- Professor Avril Drummond, Occupational Therapist, Professor of Healthcare Research and Director of Research, School of Health Sciences, University of Nottingham
A most useful book for families and friends of all those who love and care for stroke sufferers, with a positive and realistic approach. -- HealthyBooks
