Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have facilitated groups for caregivers of stroke survivors and groups for stroke survivors for four years and read many books related to stroke. No book has been as thorough in describing the impact of stroke on the marriage as this one. It is an easy read, clear and well-written. I recommend it highly to Caregiving Spouses, Stroke Survivors and psychotherapists who have clients impacted by stroke. A valuable contribution to the world of stroke.

As a stroke survivor, I though the book offered outstanding advice and techniques for dealing with the many issues that emerge for a caregiver and their spouse subsequent to a stroke. This is a great manual for anyone - stroke or no stroke !!

I feel that every spouse of a person who has a stroke should be given this book as soon as possible after the stroke. I wish I had known about it sooner.
