In Belgium, approximately 60 people a day suffer a stroke (brain haemorrhage or cerebral infarction). Anyone can suffer a stroke, including young people. After a stroke, all attention is initially focused on survival and recovery. It is only after that initial phase that the patient, as well as the people around them, start learning to live with the effects of a stroke.

Experts at Maria Middelares General Hospital are ready to answer the many questions that will arise during the process. A variety of subjects will be discussed in several free information sessions. The information sessions are held on a regular basis. You can choose for yourself which information session(s) you want to attend. Registration is required.
